According to celebrity pastry chef Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar, “there is a less mundane, more scintillating way of making graham cracker crust than the simple mash-up of cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar you learned at your momma’s elbow.” Here it is.–Christina Tosi

Then use it—preferably in the ridiculously addictive Compost Cookies recipe or as a crust for any bar cookie or pie. Then get back to us. Talk about some gussied up grahams.

Recipe Testers Reviews
Um, yum. Several of our testers tried this graham cracker crust recipe from Momofuku Milk Bar when making the Compost Cookies recipe on our site, and they say it's undoubtedly worth the extra 2 minutes—and handful of extra calories—it takes to toss the milk powder and cream into the bowl. Mixing the ingredients with your hands really does lend a better, more crumbly texture to the mixture, which is honestly good enough to snitch by the handful.
