JS5981, a reader and (now!) real-life recipe user, tried my Copycat Momofuku Compost Cookies and had this to say:
I finally made my first batch of cookies and these were it. My wife and I had a wonderful time making them and they turned out delicious. Thanks again for such a great and unique recipe, we can't wait to tackle the next one.
Thanks, JS! It makes me really happy to know you tried a recipe and that you liked it so much. I wish you good baking with the next batch!
The original Compost Cookie was born at Momofuku Milk Bar in my old stomping grounds of NYC. It's got all sorts of funky stuff like coffee grounds and potato chips.
My version includes that stuff plus oatmeal (of course), pretzels, Fritos, and peanut butter chips. I guess it's more of a leftovers or kitchen sink kind of recipe, but the word compost = cash money...ka-ching!
