I want to make a Martha Stewart cookie that calls for "plain malted milk powder".  I've found some chocolate malted milk powder but no plain.  Can anyone tell me where to look?
And that same recipe calls for crème fraiche .....I plan of substituting  sour cream for that.  Is that OK?

Nancy, Walmart sells plain malted milk powder on its Web site. Maybe the store has it too, or can order for you?

Creme fraiche is a little more liquidy and smoother than sour cream, but the tastes are similar. Our regular grocery stores carry creme fraiche, so I would guess yours should have it too?

That recipe sounds interesting. If it turns out I'm hoping you will share it with us!!!

Hi Verlee -- The local Walmart has some off-brand chocolate malted milk powder but nothing else.   (I need "plain" - no flavor)   The woman I talked to in Walmart's  customer service  suggested I go to that fancy store in a neighboring town.  And she told me their listings did not include crème fraiche  --- she had never heard of it.
Martha Stewart's recipe for Chocolate Malt Sandwiches also call for half-and-half.  Maybe I should skip this.
You can find the recipe on Martha's site.  It looks great.

Sour cream might be a good substitute for Creme fraiche.  To make sure I will look at the recipe in a bit. 
I am surprised that you can not find the malted milk powder at Walmart. 
Worse come to worse check at the local ice cream shop they probably have it to make a malted milkshake. and just might sell you a bit. 
I will be back after I look at the recipe........
Ok, all sour cream might be a bit thick for the cookie base.  I would use 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 cream..
I really think that if you can not find plain malted milk powder that you could use the chocolate and the recipe would be just as good. 

By the way I think, if my memory is correct the brand of Malted Milk powder that I used to get was Horlick's possibly Borden.

Hurrah!!  I just finished a batch of Martha Stewart's  Chocolate-Malt Sandwich cookies.  The one that call for crème fraiche (I used sour cream) and plain malted milk powder (I found that in the giant Walmart in a neighboring town).  And it calls for cream cheese, half-and-half --- things I do not keep on hand.

These cookies are worth the effort.  The filling has a very "different" flavor the recipe makes enough to really pile it on  ---- a beautiful sandwich cookie.

I hope someone else will get the recipe and try it.
