If you've ever visited the Momofuku Milk Bar owned and run by the queen of sweet treats, Christina Tosi, you'll know that it's full of heavenly delights. The sweet sticky chewy goodness that's their famous crack pie is talked about across New York an then there's their buttery crunchy compost cookies.
If you've ever had the chance, you know too well of the goodness we speak and if you've never been lucky enough to stand in line for Milk Bar cake then this video, presented by David Chang's Lucky Peach magazine, will serve you well.
It shows Tosi cooking up a huge batch of her compost cookies - ok it's not an exact recipe because this is some serious cookie making - the pure slabs of butter thrown in give you some idea of just how many cookies she's baking. However, the video does reveal just how many ingredients are actually in the cookies.
Butter, eggs, butterscotch, chocolate chips, salt, oatmeal, coffee, flour, glucose, baking powder, baking soda, cracker crumbs, sugar, light brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt, even pretzels. This is a look at someone who has perfected the art of cookie making.
For those who don't want to make 1,000 cookies, although we're sure they'd all be eaten, there's a compost cookie recipe to make a much smaller batch available on the Milk Bar website.
