Chocolate Chip Cookie Test No. 16: The Milk Bar Recipe

July 19, 2021

The NYC Milk Bar bakery's recipe for chocolate chip cookies has been on my radar for years. It was planned to be part of my initial chocolate chip cooking tasting party but sadly I never got around to making these cookies, until now. 
I had anticipated that the cookie recipe would be complicated since chef Christina Tosi's other recipes are inventive yet labor-intensive. Surprisingly, these cookies come together in no time, as long as you have softened butter at the ready. 

Recipe Notes: 
  • calls for softened (super soft) butter
  • light brown sugar is used
  • both baking powder and baking soda is needed
  • MILK POWDER is the only unusual ingredient
  • no stand mixer required
  • no rest time for dough---can be baked right away
Overall: These cookies come together easily and are perfectly chewy and buttery. I would say they were a tad on the sweet side but this might be because they weren't as caramelized and toffee-forward as cookies that are made with brown butter. Great basic cookie recipe though! 🍪🍪🍪
