In the interest of putting a stop to the great sweet vs. salty debate, Ross Canter of Santa Monica's Cookie Good has created a solution that feeds all of your potential cravings at once: the Cheetos cookie. With powdered cheddar cheese and a sizable helping of actual crushed Cheetos puffs blended into the cookie dough, the baked good is an undeniably strange amalgam of flavors. The final, neon orange creation (approximately 30% cheese) is even dusted with a layer of Cheetos residue, to ensure you’ll still be licking your fingers after you’ve demolished the cookie itself.
Canter is unabashedly avant-garde when it comes to cookie production -- Cookie Good is notorious for flavors that range from Cap’n Crunch and Bordeaux to pancakes & bacon. Recently, while up late one night pondering potential avenues for originality in the field of cookie distribution, he was overcome with nostalgia for Cheetos-dusted fingertips. He set to work the next day in his cookie laboratory, playing with ingredient levels and portion sizes until he'd concocted a recipe that managed to perfectly straddle the line between too sweet and too salty.
