Robin’s Egg Blue Speckled Malted Cookies
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup malted milk powder
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
- 1 cup Organic Raw Cane Sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup meringue powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 to 4 drops sky blue gel food coloring
- 1 to 2 drops brown or other color food coloring gel
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, malted milk powder, salt and cream of tartar; set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla. Add dry ingredients 1/2 cup at a time until soft dough forms. If dough is sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time.
- Divide dough into 2 discs, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Let dough sit out for 5 minutes before rolling. Roll dough out on a surface lightly dusted with confectioner's sugar to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch egg-shaped cutter, cut out cookies. Place on prepared baking sheet. Roll remaining dough into a ball, roll out and continue to cut out cookies.
- Bake 7 to 8 minutes.
- In a large bowl, beat all ingredients except food coloring, at medium speed, about 7 minutes. Add food coloring and incorporate by hand.
- Spoon frosting into pastry bag fitted with a #2 icing tip. Pipe icing onto cookies, covering completely. Allow to dry completely before serving.
- Cover work area with waxed paper.
- In a small bowl, mix food coloring and vanilla. Using a stiff food grade paintbrush, dip brush into “paint” and blot lightly on a paper towel so the brush is not too wet. Flick the brush bristles with a fingertip. Do a sample cookie to see how close you need to be to get the best spatter. Continue with remaining cookies until they are all speckled.
