Everyone loves compost cookies, and what I love most about them is that you can add whatever combination of ingredients strikes your fancy.
I recently made this version of the famous Momofuku Milk Bar recipe, and I couldn’t stop talking about the very specific steps this recipe laid out, which I swear made the difference between a good cookie, and a great cookie.
While we’re talking about cookies, I’ve had a few friends ask recently about flat cookies, so here is my top advice: make sure your baking soda and baking powder are still good! I replace my baking powder about every 6 months, and baking soda every 3 months. So if the composition of your compost cookies are leaving something to be desired, check your expiration dates!
To the basic compost cookie recipe I chose to add:
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped dried cherries
- 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 3/4 salted chopped salted cashews
- 1/2 cup chopped pretzels
