that’s what she baked: blueberry-and-cream cookies

I’m sorry Malt Chocolate Chip Cookies, but there’s a new favorite cookie in town and it’s name is Blueberry-and-Cream cookies.

This famous recipe is of course by Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar in New York. But I credit my going out to buy dry milk, light corn syrup, and white chocolate chips (I had all the rest of the ingredients!) entirely to Darjeeling Dreams. When she posted about these cookies I just knew I had to make it. And make it I did – the very next day!

This cookie is awesome not only because it is ridiculously delicious (probably the best cookie I have ever eaten or made) but because it is so unique.

 

Milk crumbs anyone?

I mean, just the name “milk crumbs” is awesome. I want to put milk crumbs in everything now. And I just might.

 

This is the milk crumbs pre-baking. Basically, a mixture of dry nonfat milk, butter, flour, sugar, cornstarch, and salt.

 

Then once baked and cooled, it’s mixed with more dry nonfat milk and melted white chocolate…

 

And voila – milk crumbs!

This is what turns these cookies from fab to fabulous! Huh? Is that a saying?

 

The only difference I made from the original recipe was I used fresh blueberries instead of dried blueberries.

But…I’m pretty sure that’s okay. ;)

 

Oh yeah, and I also used light corn syrup in place of glucose because…I have no idea where in the heck to get that. It was a perfectly perfect substitute.

As usual, I used a cookie scoop to scoop out this beautiful dough. They recommend using an ice cream scoop, but I liked them just as I made them with a cookie scoop.

I can’t wait until I can visit Momofuku Milk Bar and try these cookies there! I guess I should plan my first visit to New York first though eh? The “east-est” I’ve ever been in the U.S. is Chicago!

Give these a try for yourself! These cookies are so good I think I’ll be happy never making another cookie again! Okay, that might not be the truth, but I know I’ll be making these cookies for a long, long time!
