Momofoku Milk Bar Cookies
Nothing's better than a friend who happily comes from the Upper East Side to hang out in Brooklyn with you and your kids, entertains your toddler while you put your baby down for a nap, doesn't seem bothered by the fact that your apartment looks like a hurricane just swept through, and who brings a big box of cookies from Momofoku Milk Bar with her, too. As if that weren't good enough, that same friend then comes back the next day to help you attend five open houses with your two kids because your husband has to work and you really need to find a new place to live. Karen, you are the best!
Karen brought us two types of cookies from Momofoku Milk Bar. The cornflake-chocolate chip-marshmallow and the compost which is loaded with two types of chips, graham cracker crumbs, pretzels, potato chips, and all sorts of other stuff. To be completely honest, the long ingredient list on both cookies freaked me out a little bit. I usually steer clear of things like lake 4 and partially hydrogenated oil, but once I was able to look past that, I could see why people are so obsessed with Momofoku's cookies. Total sugar bombs, they make you feel like a kid again. Thanks to The Amateur Gourmet, I just found the recipe for the compost cookies. I'm going to give them a try this weekend and tinker with the ingredients a little bit. I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.
