I’m sorry for introducing these to your life. I feel like the ice-cream van man playing the music and taunting your children, or the teenage girl who pushed cigarettes to you at your first disco or encouraged you to take your first sip of vodka. There’s still time, but only if you look away fast, to get away from these terribly addictive cookies. But in my defense, they have do a redeeming feature; the smushed up cornflakes that are full of added vitamins, just don’t think about the sea salt flakes, or the melty marshmallows or the chocolate chips. And definitely don’t think about the lovely crunchy around the outside chewy in the middle delight that these are. They are addictive, that’s all I’m saying. Don’t try and say I didn’t warn you!
We tried these in Momofuku Milk Bar back in NYC in December and I knew I had to try recreate them. After just a little bit of research online and just one Sunday morning baking in my pyjammas session later I was a bit heartbroken. The cookies were waaaaay overdone. Like burnt. This was back during a spiraling-downhill-no-good-luck in the kitchen phase, where I had recipe after recipe turn out way wrong. Does that ever happen to you? Please say yes! Anyway, after a bit of trial and error I found the cookies needed just 8 minutes in my oven and not the 17 in the recipe, I think I had maybe flattened the cookie dough out too much instead of leaving it in heaped scoops. So lesson learned, keep your eye on these cookies while they are baking. They are worth it!
I found the Recipe here on the Martha Stewart website, there’s a little video on the side too!
