Compost Cookies

These aren’t the prettiest of cookies, but they sure are interesting to eat!  When I get a new cookbook I read it like a novel.  The Momofuku Milkbar Cookbook by Christina Tosi was no exception.  In her introduction she talks about how important it is to just bake.  If you want to become a better baker you need to bake more and she was baking everyday.  That was really inspirational to me because it sort of justifies the amount of time I spend baking.  I don’t bake everyday, but I’m baking 4-5 times a week and my comfort and speed in the kitchen has greatly increased.

I made these cookies for Hadiya because she won the giveaway 2 months ago, I never said I would be speedy!  This is such an interesting cookie.  Every bite has something different.  I love that you can see the potato chips and butterscotch chips in the cookie.  I also love all the little specks of chocolate from using the mini chocolate chips.  This cookie bakes up large and crispy, a nice change from the usual big and chewy cookies.  These are definitely an interesting cookie!
