Malted Milk Powder - where to find?!

I've been drooling over Martha Stewart's recipe for chocolate malt sandwich cookies for months, and finally got around to trying to make them. But I can't find malted milk powder ANYWHERE!

I found chocolate malt from Ovaltine but that's all. I gather I'm looking for pretty straightforward, 'pure' malted milk powder.

I've tried D'ag, food emporium, agata, and Morton.

I'll go anywhere in Manhattan, or outside if necessary. I'd rather not order the stuff online as I realy want to make them tomorrow for a special (and hopefully lucky) someone.

Thank you!!!

  1. Myer's of Keswick on Hudson -- look for Horlick's or Ovaltine (the non-chocolate kind). Last time I was there they carried both.

    1. Lots of markets in Chinatown carry Horlick's. It shouldn't be hard to find at all.

      1. Can't guarantee they still have it, but I bought some at Fairway about two years ago. If Fairway is convenient for you, try calling them. I find they're pretty good about being able to tell you what they do and do not have in stock.

        1. Is this the same kind of malted milk powder you use to make a malted? Boy, I grew up on that stuff. A heaping tablespoon for each cup of milk, thrown into the old fashioned tall blender with the detachable metal cup for a terrific malted, using ice cold milk.

          I haven't seen that powder in years ......

          1. Thanks everyone! I got it the day of the first reply at Meyer's. Also, just by the way, tried their sausage roll which I think is made with cumberland sausage. A little coleman's mustard. Awesome.

            Here is the recipe for the cookies I made. Definitely worth the effort (although the filling turns to stringy, gummy glue if you overmix it, which I did -- but still delicious once you fluff it up after chilling).
