Still cooking out of the Momofuku Milk Bar book.
Burnt the crap out of my cookies and they were too sweet. Left them in a minute too long and didn't take into account the high sugar content (granulated sugar, light brown sugar cornflake crunch, semi-sweet chocolate chips, marshmallows) .
Do you think I can safely reduce the sugar content in the batter with out compromising the recipe?
250 g granulated sugar (1.25 cups)
150 g light brown sugar (.75 cups)
mixing that w/ 16 tablespoons of butter for the creaming process
Supposed to make 15 to 20 2.75 ounce cookies (size pre-bake)
re: Becca Porter
Wait Becca, so you only cooked them for 12 min @ 375? Was yours sickly sweet too? I'm thinking the overcooking caramelized all the sugars and brought them to the front?
After the recommended 18 min, looked undercooked in middle so I stuck them back in which was big mistake.
Either I have a faulty oven thermometer or my oven sucks cause the temp would constantly fluctuate between 325 and 425.
Tempted to make again but this time cut the sugar down to same amount as corn cookie and then take out @ 18 min.
