{Milk Bar Mondays} Blueberries & Cream Cookies


We’re back yet again! Though our posting schedule has been sporadic, a portion of our original posting group is still alive and dying to work our way through the Momofuku Milk Bar Cookbook, one 30-step recipe at a time. ;) I actually *think* that this marks the last cookie recipe that we have yet to try! (Am I right ladies?) If so- I’m both relieved at reaching that milestone and sad that all the easy-ish recipes are over. Onto the layer cakes and bagel bombs!


The cookie recipe we all made today is a wonderful one. Sweet dried blueberries and “milk crumb” (which is matly, salty, buttery and delicious) is folded into Christina Tosi’s signature style of cookie. Chewy in the center, crisp on the edges, and complex. I honestly wasn’t so sure what this flavor combo would be like, but I knew it would be unique and I’m always curious as to what’s in store with this cookbook. Well- I have to say I adored these cookies. The texture was perfect and they tasted almost like a blueberry muffin in cookie form. I served them at a little friend gathering over the weekend and we all couldn’t get enough. Her cookies are always a bit addicting, but these are now a favorite! (I actually think I’ll make them again which isn’t something that I’m willing to do all that often.)

Blueberry & Cream Cookies- The Baker Chick

The lovely Cassie is posting the full recipe in all it’s glory- check it out on her site Bake Your Day. PS (I once again followed Cassie’s advice of using bread flour in the Milk Bar cookies. It really seemed to pay off!)

Also- please stop by my other MBM friends’ sites to see how their cookies turned out:

  1. Wait, is this the last cookie recipe?!?!? Noooooooooooooo! Are we at the point where we can start creating Milk Bar Cookies of our own? I think I’ve composted at least 6 times now :) Yours look PERFECT. Think I have to attempt a new milk crumb because I want mine to taste more like a blueberry muffin cookie… hmm.

  2. Yay Milk Bar Mondays! I think I never have the foresight to plan ahead and actually make a MilkBar recipe (someday though!) but I love reading them for the interesting techniques and ingredients. It’s inspiring to think of cookies or cakes in a totally new way. These look delicious!

  3. I wasn’t super excited about making these either. When I had them in her store they weren’t great, but I ended up loving the homemade ones. I agree – I would make these again! I thought for one of her recipes they were actually pretty easy. And I *think* this is our last cookie… Time for some more challenges haha

  4. i see it was worth walking in the horrific cold to get those dried blueberries! I can’t remember whether I’ve had the real Milk Bar version of these but either way I need to make them or go to the store and pick some up!
