The Powder Christina Tosi Adds To Chocolate Chip Cookies For Extra Flavor And Texture
From their 1930s roots back in Whitman, Massachusetts to today, chocolate chip cookies have remained a beloved classic. When the founder of NYC-based bakery Milk Bar, Christina Tosi, is preparing chocolate chip cookies, she likes to add a certain ingredient that you wouldn’t even think to consider.
To make her chocolate chip cookies special, Tosi likes to add an ingredient not commonly seen in cookies: nonfat milk powder. Adding a tablespoon will make the cookies a bit chewier, as well as provide a whole new layer of flavor, and this creative idea is sure to have people coming back for seconds.
If you want to ensure the success of your cookies at a social function, try using cookie cutters to bake them in a different shape or size than the usual two- to three-inch round cookie. Additionally, if you’re feeling extra creative, you can add some mix-ins of your choosing, like peanut butter, M&M's, or candy canes!
