I love these cookies! I certainly will never turn away a great chocolate chip but this cookie may be my next go-to cookie treat. Momofuku Milk Bar is in New York City; in their cookbook you will discover a whole new world of sweets. One of the secrets of these cookies is the milk crumbs. The recipe for those is as follows:
• ½ cup of milk powder
• ¼ cup of flour
• 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
• 2 tablespoons of sugar
• ½ teaspoon kosher salt
• 4 tablespoons of melted butter
• 1/4 cup milk powder
• 3 oz of melted white chocolate
• Preheat oven to 250°F.
• Combine the first five ingredients in a medium bowl, toss with your hands… add melted butter and continue to toss using a spatula. The mixture will start to look like small cluster/crumbs.
• Spread the clusters on a parchment lined sheet pan and bake for 20 minutes. The crumbs should be sandy and your kitchen should smell amazing. Cool the crumbs.
• Crumble any milk crumb clusters that are larger than ½ inch and put the crumbs in a medium bowl. Add the milk powder and toss together.
• Next poor the white chocolate over the crumbs and toss until your clusters are enrobed. Then continue tossing them every 5 minutes until the white chocolate hardens. The crumbs will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one month.
