Looking forward to the Superbowl last week, I planned on making something special for dessert. Since I don't really dabble in making desserts much, given my frequent gluten free bouts, I was excited to try something new, and thought to recreate my favorite cookie at Momofuku Milk Bar, which is of course the Compost Cookie.
For those of you not too familiar with this treat, it's truly a compost of sorts, as it combines a bevy of different sweet and savory ingredients such as chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, rolled oats, potato chips (yes, actual potato chips) and pretzels. I love how chunky and rustic they are, as the recipe encourages you not to break up the savory ingredients so they're fully on display.
Happy to find the original recipe right on Momofuku Milk Bar's website, I took to making these for Josh and Diana's Superbowl party. They were quite tasty out of the oven but I botched them up a bit by burning the bottoms unfortunately. Dan loved them from the get go, and gobbled up a few even before they made it to the Superbowl.
