Oh, Monday. Let’s pick it up with some Compost Cookies! Have you ever had them? They’re basically the most addictive cookie on the planet. Invented by Momofuku’s acclaimed pastry chef Christina Tosi, they combine both sweet and salty ingredients into one cookie- think chocolate chunks and potato chips, marshmallows and pretzels, or Cheetos and Captain Crunch cereal (for real). You can actually use any ingredient combination you want- you just need two cups of salty ingredients, and two cups of sweet.
Last month, when I came on board as the newest food contributor of The Glitter Guide, and was dreaming up black and orange inspired sweet treats for October’s edition, I couldn’t think of anything more fitting than a Halloween inspired Compost Cookie. This one is packed with kettle cooked potato chips, black and orange m&ms, and caramel covered rice cakes. Yeah- pretty over the top. Head on over to Glitter Guide for the full recipe!
