Momofuku_Milk_Bar-4

This past holiday season, I participated in my cousins’ annual “Pirate’s Booty” game – a secret Santa gift exchange with stealing.  My cousins and I really get into this game, and I’d be lying if I said that strategy, planning and strategic partnerships didn’t play a key factor in securing the choice gifts.  Despite having a bum number this year (3! out of 20+!), I somehow walked away with one of the best gifts.  This may or may not have been because I hid my gift under the table after unwrapping it and my cousins may or may not have forgotten that my gift was a steal option.  ANYHOO, their loss is my gain, and my gain was 6 cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar and a bottle of cereal milk mix! Yum!

I had previously written about the Momofuku franchise when I visited má pêche a few years ago…

….where I had tried the corn cookie and their crack pie! MMmmmm.  I was a fan, so I was super excited to get even more Milk Bar treats.

The cereal milk mix was cutely packaged and consisted of all the goodies that would create that lovely, slightly-sweetened milk that remains after you eat a bowl of sugary cereal.  I haven’t made it yet, as I’d like to save it to perhaps make some cereal ice cream – but I’ll let you know when I do!

Included in my Pirate’s Booty prize were six, yes count them SIX, cookies!  From the top, they are the Compost cookie, Chocolate Chocolate, Blueberry & Cream, Cornflake Marshmallow, Corn, and another Compost.

They were ALL delicious, though my very favorites were the cornflake marshmallow and the corn cookie.  The compost cookie (first photo) might be called Momofuku’s “signature” cookie – and true to its name has a variety of seemingly random ingredients that come together to form something quite scrumptious.  A quick glance at the ingredient list reveals pretzels, potato chips, butterscotch chips and much more.  I loved the salty and sweet notes.

The cornflake marshmallow was somewhat similar to the compost cookie, but with the soft and pillowy presence of marshmallows:

The chocolate chocolate cookie was as rich and luxurious as it looks:

The blueberry cream cookie was sweet and tangy, with dried blueberries and “milk crumbs,” which tasted a bit like white chocolate to me.  These cookie resembled the best parts of a blueberry muffin top.  If you’re a blueberry fan, you’ll love this cookie.

The corn cookie was one of my faves – it might not be for everyone, but I absolutely love it!  I love sweet corn flavors, and this chewy, “corny” cookie hit the spot.  If you like sweet corn bread or kettle corn, I’d recommend the corn cookie.

There are several Momofuku Milk Bar locations sprinkled throughout NYC – if you ever come across one, definitely pop in and pick up a baked good – their pies, cake balls and cookies are just divine!

  1. I’m not crazy about the cookies at MMB because I think they’re too sweet. But I would like to give the corn one a try.

  3. I went there a few years ago and loved the cookies! I can’t remember what other desserts I had there but I didn’t like it as much. The compost cookies are SOOOOO good though!

  4. I’d try cornflake marshmallow! I also tried making compost cookies once…not very successful but was still fun to empty my snack pantry into a bowl of batter!
