1 egg works better than the Momo[filtered]u Milk Bar's recipe which uses 2.

This recipe needs some tweaking! If you compare the official recipe with Momofuku Milk Bar's website, they use 2 sticks of butter for their 2 cup flour ratio for the cookie. I just made the Martha Stewart version yesterday afternoon with 16 TB of butter as my only change to the cookie recipe. PLEASE use two sticks of butter instead of one. They end up looking just like the pictures and they're delicious. I now understand why this recipe wasn't getting good reviews and not always turning out.

I made these cookies for the second time today. The first time I made them, they were absolute perfection! Today, they practically melted on the pan. They were so flat they looked like crepes. I used actual glucose the second time around instead of corn syrup. I wonder if that's what made them so flat? I double checked and I didn't skip any ingredients or add the wrong amount. Ah well, I'll try again tomorrow with the corn syrup again. When you do these cookies right, they're AMAZING!

These were fantastic! I substituted light corn syrup for the glucose and used regular butter instead of Plugra, and they came out amazing! I had to add a little more white chocolate to the Milk Crumbs than the recipe called for. Not sure why that happened, but I couldn't get everything coated with the amount listed in the recipe. Also, it might seem like the recipe uses a lot of salt, but the salt actually really adds something extra yummy, so don't cut it down. I highly recommend making these!

I found glucose at Michael's in the Wilton section. Interestingly, the only ingredient is corn syrup. It's much thicker than Karo syrup but I'll bet you could still do the substitution. This was such a fun cookie to bake with a great taste -- a very nice change. Since I have the ingredients I'm going to measure out a few of the things and weigh them so I don't have to mess with all those measuring spoons and cups. next time. The blueberries were expensive -- I had to sell my dog! ;-)

The chef mentions one could use fresh blueberries also, but wouldn't it change the texture of the cookie due to their very watery nature? I wonder if corn syrup could be used to replace the glucose, but it is thinner.

I've made these twice now. SO GOOD!!!! Creamy and full of flavor. The milk crumbs are easy to put together and the recipe it's self may sound complicated, but it's really easy too. I also used less salt. Don't overbake them...they cook up while they cool. Enjoy!

These are incredible. I can't imagine why someone wouldn't LOVE these. I made the Milk Crumbs in advance, so it was pretty quick to put the rest of the recipe together the next day. Only change -- I followed recipe exactly except used 1 tsp salt instead of 2 tsp. For those who said it had an off taste, I wonder if they used GOOD white chocolate. I used Callebaut. Expensive, but sooo worth it. Will make again and again....

Lizzy0541... the recipe calls for a 1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup of milk crumbs (recipe is included for the milk crumbs) is 1/2 1/2 cup = 1 cup which is too much. So 1/2 1/3 is correct

And for those who are complaining that the recipe is too complicated... This is what professional recipes are like. Just because I don't have the time, talent, or supplies to paint a portrait, should I criticize a website that shows how pro artists do it? If you think it's too hard for you, don't try it, but try to be glad that it's available for those who want a challenge. Variety is the spice of life.

Also, the amount of water in salted and unsalted butter is different. Substituting will change the texture of the product, not just the saltiness.

The reason you should bake with unsalted butter, then add salt is so you can be in control of how much salt goes into your recipe. You should only use salted butter for things like your your toast.

You can use corn syrup in place of the glucose if you can't find it, and it will work fine. The point is to use an inverted sugar- one that won't crystalize again like regular sugar.

Made these today. I think they're really tasty. I love the tang of the milk crumbs in them. They don't taste enough like blueberries for me though. I might add more berries if I make them again. I used the following substitutions- corn syrup for the glucose unsalted butter for the European-style butter 1 tsp salt instead of 2 tsp I also made the cookies a smaller size. I used a rounded tablespoon of dough for each, and baked about 11 minutes.

very interesting texture and flavor. I agree that salt should be reduced. i substituted light corn syrup for glucose. my roommates were unsure about them, but they kept coming back for more. the cookies don't seem done when first coming out of the oven, but they assume the right texture after cooling. don't overbake, just a light golden color. would be fantastic with dried tart cherries as well.

Today the cookies are actually really good, and they don't have the tangy aftertaste anymore. They're much more fudgey but still soft. Don't bake them too much, just till there's a light golden ring around the edges. Good cookies in the end, but I don't think I will make them again unless I have a request in the family, they're not spectacular.

I made these cookies today, and only used a pinch of salt, regular fat butter, and substituted half the amount of glucose with corn syrup. I didn't like the taste of the cookies, they had a bit of an odd flavor with a tangy aftertaste. A plus side to the cookies is they stayed very soft and fluffy after they cooled. I made the second batch a much thinner size and they seemed to taste better when they weren't as thick.

I am sure you could use a brand like land o lakes sweet cream unsalted butter, I have used Plugra in the past, it is a very rich butter due to it's higher fat - 2% more than normal butter, or maybe you could find a local dairy that makes their own butter with a slightly higher fat content.

The salt just may be coarse salt and not regular table salt so one would use twice as much for coarse salt. They just forget to give the correct salt. This does indeed appear to be a labor intensive recipe.

Thanks for the comments on the salt, maybe 1/2 tsp? And I don't see what is SO complicated about these cookies. I think the milk crumbs sound awesome, and could be used in lots of different desserts. And for comparison on complicatedness (is that a word?) I just made some cupcakes from the Betty Crocker website, that uses their boxed mix and canned frosting, and it still took 2 hours because of all the additional stuff you had to do! They were well worth it (key lime pie cupcakes).

Made them last night. The salt quantity is definitely wrong. I put only 1 tsp and they came out salty. Use no more than 1 pinch. Milk crumbs are easy to make. Anyway, to my taste the final result is not worth all the trouble Can someone tell me what kind of ovens you use to bake cookies: conventional or fan forced?

I agree that 2 teaspoons salt is too much - leaves a salty taste. I had the originals at Momofukus in NYC and they weren't salty. I will cut back on the salt next time I make them. But they are worth the steps to make! I used a #20 scoop and got 16 cookies.

I just took the first tray of cookies out of the oven and they took forever to cook! Before baking I even popped in a thermometer to make sure the oven temp was exactly 325. I used every ingrediant exactly. I didn't keep track, but it was at least 30 minutes. I had chilled the first batch 20 min. Could that have added all that extra time? I took the second tray out of the fridge early.... it's been 10 min, and they have just barely begun to cook down. The recipi made 8 ice cream scoop size balls, so the size was fairly close. Another 5 min and the 2nd tray seems to be baking a little faster........ but no way are they 8-10 min cookies! (You can buy the glucose in Michael's w your 40% off coupon.)

You can always add 1-2 tbsp and bake a test batch of 1-2 cookies, if they aren't soft enough for your taste add a little bit more until you get the consistency you like. I've also used honey and agave nectar as well (also sold in natural food stores) - if you want something a little lower on the glycemic scale. Both work the same. Hope that helps you!

Can corn syrup be substituted for glucose? Glucose isn't readily available. It is not used that often in everyday cooking to justify buying it.
