Happy THURSDAY, Noshers! Are you having a happy day? If not so much, it will be happier now because I am giving away COOKIES!!!
In my last blog post, I waxed poetic on the lovely cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar that I lovingly
stole won from my cousins at our annual Pirate’s Booty game. I just love cookies, y’all. Momofuku cookies, in particular. So when I was approached to partner with American Express to give away “The Perfect 10 Kookie,” created by Momofuku Milk pastry Chef Christina Tosi – I knew I had to say yes!
“The Perfect 10 Kookie” is the creation of Christina and her long-time friend, model Karlie Kloss. Made with healthy, all-natural ingredients, these Kookies are dairy-free, gluten-free and sweetened with agave. Now, fellow Noshers – you know me – I love dairy and all things sweet and fatty (true story). But I was pleasantly surprised when I tried these Kookies and they were moist, deliciously chewy, and hearty without being super-sweet (I’m guessing the fact that Christina had a hand in the recipe-creation certainly helped). I’d be lying if I said there weren’t now four cookies left in my tin where there were previously six.
Not only are these Perfect 10 Kookies good and good for you, but for NYC-ers who purchase them at Momofuku Milk Bar, 30% of proceeds go to FEED, the organization that provides school meals to children around the world. In fact, each Kookie sold provides 10 school meals to hungry children! Pretty amazing, huh?
And where does American Express come in? Well, first of all, I have a personal affinity for AmEx – they really are my card of choice (Starwood card FTW, and no they didn’t pay me to say that). But Chef Christina is part of an ambassador program at AmEx that celebrates cardmembers – using her card, she has grown Momofuku Milk Bar to five bakeries and a commissary in just 4 years! As part of its “Make My Day” program (#AmexMakeMyDay), AmEx is providing the support and “oomph” to make Chef Christina’s “Perfect 10 Kookie” initiative a reality.
