About

These cookies are the love child of Alton Brown’s “The Chewy” chocolate chip cookies and the Momofuko milk bar “Compost Cookies.” Of course, like many children, they possess traits that neither parent can understand or account for, and toss out many of the notions their parents hold dear to fit their new world view. In this case, that world view is to have a bunch of movie snacks together in one ever-chewy cookie form! Pistachio, pretzel, dark chocolate, and semisweet chocolate… a beautiful melody of sweet and salty. These cookies do come with one rule, though. You must drink them with a glass of milk.
