Momofuku Milk Bar Compost Cookie, take 2


I got the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook for Christmas (thanks Santa!) and decided to give the Compost Cookies another try. I had made them before, but that recipe differed a bit from the one in the book, and although the first batch was really tasty they were also really flat and crunchy and I hoped that the correct recipe would remedy that.

Alas, no. Maybe it's something I'm doing wrong, or maybe they're supposed to be like this (but I don't think so), but they ended up pretty much identical. Or worse, but probably because I unwisely added a bunch of M&M:s and those turned out to be way too sweet for my liking. So, I won't even bother to give you a proper recipe - if you want to make them, check out my first post on the subject instead! It's a GREAT idea to mix in potato chips and pretzels though, I love the sweet-salty balance.
