What does barley malt powder taste like? Can you use it in the same manner and quantity as malted milk powder? I just made a batch of Martha Stewart's Malted Milk Cookies, and they were good, but not great. Good because I could taste the malted milk powder (Carnation), not great because the cookies were rather hard and because I would have loved a more pronounced malted milk flavor. Would the barley malt powder provided more flavor and/or a different texture?
