Sweet baby jesus.

These cookies are freakin outta this world! I stumbled across this recipe while looking for a birthday treat for my pal. He's getting a pretty awesome, changing colors magical mug and I wanted to fill it with something special. The Momofuku for 2 site is full of gorgeous photos and helpful comments.

I knew these were going to be good when the caramelized corn flakes came out of the oven. A humble breakfast staple was elevated to toasted, sweet/savory perfection. I'm already thinking of where else I can work in these gems..blondies, cupcakes, granola bars...

I flaked and forgot to cream the brown sugar along with the butter and white sugar, oops! I didn't realize my mistake until it was too late and they were baking. Perhaps not surprisingly if you've eaten at Milk bar, my mistake was a happy one. The cookies came out not too sweet, which is often a complaint of mine. The texture was a bit shortbread-like and the flavor was smack dab in the middle of sweet and savory! I still have most of the ingredients, so I might make more this weekend for friends (and...myself..). If I do I'll stick with the half sugar approach, just using both kinds of sugar this time. Man, these are good...this crappy photo doesn't do them justice.
