Momofuku Milk Bar Moves to Trademark Goods

Regarding the Momofuku Milk Bar, around the corner from the Ssam Bar, there are two things you should keep in mind: one is that the soft serve samples are pretty sizable (and free); the other is that pastry chef Christina Tosi’s Crack Pie™, Cereal Milk™, and Compost Cookies™ are now all trademarked by in process with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. File under inevitable.

A Review of Momofuku Milk Bar NYC
Et, pour le piece de resistance! The Compost Cookies!!! In the front of the Milk Bar was a girl scooping massive balls of cookie dough from an endless vat. I couldn’t tell whether I pitied or envied her as she dug her scoop into the tub and pulled out a rich ball of dough. The cookies are a combination of pretzels, potato chips, coffee, oats, butterscotch and chocolate chips. I really like the idea of potato chips in a cookie- they add a delicious salty crunch. I think scooping cookie dough with an ice cream scoop is an amazing idea and will try to get Whitney to do that from now on.

Culinary SOS: Momofuku Milk Bar’s compost cookies
August 18, 2012|By Noelle Carter
Dear SOS: Just back from some choice New York City restaurants and hoping to replicate in L.A.: Any chance you could get the recipe for the compost cookie from Momofuku? Thanks for taking requests!
Dear Wenise: These cookies are like taking every single one of my favorite snacks and packaging them in a simple, compact, magical treat. Chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coffee, graham cracker crust, pretzels and even potato chips are tossed in with a rich cookie dough to turn out something truly inspired. I’ll never look at another cookie in the same way again.
