Momofuku's Midtown Milk Bar. During these trips, I was usually forced to pass the wall of cookies in search of other delicious sweet treats. With this unfortunate situation in the back of my mind, I started my holiday cookie planning. Yes, between the savory and the sweet, my kitchen has been a high-traffic area. As I scoured the internet for cookie ideas, I came across Momofuku's Compost Cookie. Bells, whistles, we had a winner.
the real one from Christina Tosi's visit to Regis & Kelly, and it made some saucer size cookies. A lot of dough, a lot of time, for cookies that, though very delicious, could not be transported easily. It needed adjustments. Lucky for me this is a popular recipe, and others had already done some hard cookie work to make this recipe for smaller cookie. Behold Cookie Madness's version which gives you the same delicious taste, but for a smaller cookie.
Serious Eats' Cookie Swap, and won my office cookie exchange. They're pretty fantastic, these recipes are bona fide successes. Best part of them is, you split the work over two days. You make the dough one day-which only takes about a half hour, shape the dough into balls, pop in the fridge, to take them out to pop in the oven for 10 minutes another day. Complex taste, easy cookie. Also helps that you can modify the sweet and savories to your liking. Friends, expect various versions of these in the years to come.
