Cookies are a big Christmas tradition in my family, and m sister brought these cookies to us for the holidays when visiting us. She labeled one ziploc ‘N’ and one ziploc ‘B’, and B told me he was going to steal my bag too.
My sister is famous for baking cookies and is now called “Cookie” by my dad’s office. I told her these cookies were too good not to share on Obsessive Cooking Disorder.
I would rather eat a cookie over cake any day, and these cookies from Momofuku are the perfect texture. I much prefer my cookies crunchy and crispy over soft and chewy, and the cornflakes add such a fun texture.
Interestingly the creator of these famous cookies, Christina Tosi, was originally a food safety consultant. Luckily, the owner, David Chang, realized how talented she was and hired her to make desserts (source, source, source)
I hate the post holiday blues, and we had to take the tree down early this year because it was so dried up, we feared it would be come a fire hazard (I’ve never had a live Christmas tree die so early before). I did use the branches for the background decoration before it got tossed.
Good thing I have a lot of these cookies, because Christmas isn’t over until the last Christmas cookie is eaten!
Recipe from Butter with a Side of Bread. It took my sister a couple of tries as the marshmallows kept burning to a crisp, but with this version, they added it at the end instead of mixing with the dough.
