I decided to try these cookies since everyone has been raving about Momofuku's everything. I found a recipe on Momofuku for two, not sure it's the best but it looked good. I have to say these are ok and nothing special. The cornflakes made the cookie too chewy.
- 2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1 ¼ cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 ½ tsp kosher salt (plus more for sprinkling)
- 3/4 cup oatmeal
- 1 1/4 cup lightly crushed cornflakes (= about 1 1/2 cup cornflakes before crushing)
- 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips*
- about 3/4 cup mini marshmallows
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes on medium speed. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, and beat until combined.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and beat on low speed, just so the dry ingredients become incorporated. With a wooden spoon, mix in the oatmeal, crushed cornflakes, and chocolate chips.
(If you have time and would like the cookies to spread a little less, refrigerate the dough for two hours.)
On a parchment-lined baking sheet, scoop up and roll the dough into golf ball-sized spheres. (Six will fit comfortably on one pan–give them room to spread!) Lightly press down 4 mini marshmallows in the center of each ball of dough (I actually waited until the cookies bake a bit to add the marshmallows--this technique worked best to maximize the number of marshmallows per cookies). Sprinkle tops with a touch more salt. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Bake for 9-10 minutes. The cookies will still look soft in the middle when you take them out of the oven. Allow them to cool directly on the tray for a few minutes before moving them onto a platter.
