blueberry and cream cookies

every time i see cookies, my hair would turn blue, my eyes would get googly, and my vocab would be even more limited than usual.  to say i love cookies is an understatement and that is why i am always looking to get my hands on the best cookie recipes around.  my newest discovery is the famous momofuku milk bar’s blueberry and cream cookies.  i heard about this gem when i was in new york last time.  unfortunately, the shop was closed at the time, so i didn’t get to try it.  enter the helping hand of modern technology.  after a quick google, i found the recipe on martha stewart’s website.  they even have the video of christina tosi (pastry chef for momofuku) and martha making this cookie on the show posted next to the recipe.  these cookies are definitely a little more time-consuming than the usual chocolate chip cookies, but the flavor is a good change, not to mention incredibly delicious.  the secret ingredient is the milk crumb.  the momofuku milk crumbs remind me a lot of the milk powder filling that’s in chinese pastries.  i LOVE that stuff.  also, instead of using extra egg yolk and brown sugar, this recipe calls for glucose.  since glucose is kind of hard to find in your regular grocery stores, i substituted with corn syrup under the suggestion of momofukufor2the glucose/corn syrup make the cookie super soft and chewy.  i baked a few and froze the remainder cookie dough, which is going to be even better in a day or 2 (baking 101: freezing cookie dough gives the ingredients more time to bond).  even though it took longer to make, i would rate this recipe as fairly easy.  if you like cookies, i recommend giving these ones a try. it has definitely made it into my long term repertoire.

all this talk about cookies is making me want one.  screw exercising… me want cookies!  om nom nom nom!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt (i think 1 teaspoon is enough)
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) Plugra European-style unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup glucose (i substituted with corn syrup)
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup Milk Crumbs
  •  

    Directions

  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix together butter, sugars, and glucose until well combined. Add egg and mix until well combined.
  • Add flour mixture and mix until well combined. Add blueberries and milk crumbs and mix until well combined. Using an ice cream scoop about 2 1/8 inches in diameter, scoop dough into balls and place about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Transfer baking sheets to refrigerator until dough is chilled, about 15 minutes. Transfer baking sheets to oven and bake, rotating pans halfway through baking, until cookies are golden brown and tops begin to crackle, about 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

    Those look delicious! And I’m pretty sure the blueberries would make them count as a health food, not a dessert.
