Malted Milk Cookies

In one of my hometown recipe books I saw this recipe submitted and smiled. I really don't know anyone under the age of oh... 75 (?) that makes these anymore. I'm sure there are some, but I don't personally know any. The people that I've talked to or shown what 'malted milk powder' is have never seen it before or knew it existed. I grew up with it in our cupboards. We added it to our homemade shakes and malts. There is some in my cupboard right now. I wonder how many thirty-somethings have it in their kitchen at this moment? PS: It's sold by the ice cream toppings at your grocery store.
