|my compost cookie|
Last week, someone at work brought in cookies from Milk Bar. Tons of weird, yet cool flavors. I loved the chocolate cookie, the corn cookie & the compost cookie. Of course I had to look for the recipe. I found something that looked like it could work here.
The Compost Cookie, which makes me laugh - because it is registered by Milk Bar, was what I was dying to bake! Why you ask? Because you get to throw in whatever stuff you want! Sweet & salty!
I asked a couple people what they thought I should put in these cookies...and Jeff (@jeffwunderwood) said Cheetos. Of course he did! Well, while I didn't want to possibly ruin the entire batch of cookies by adding Cheetos, I thought coating the dough in crushed Cheetos would suffice.
So, with the recipe given, I decided to add 1/2 C of each of the following - crushed potato chips, crushed pretzels, coffee grounds (needed more), chocolate chips, Reeses Pieces, toffee bits...and I think that was it?! Ha...anyhow, YUM. They turned out pretty darn good. I did eat a little bit of one of these...

Tips to making these, even though I have not yet perfected the recipe & method.
- scoop dough & then chill for a full day
- add a lot of crushed stuff, but mix in by hand if possible
- only bake 6 at a time
- add at least 1 weird ingredient - be fun
