Compost Cookies

Compost Cookies….what?! No, they’re not cookies made of literal compost, they’re arguably the most famous cookie on Star Island (we see you, mint avalanche cookies). How did they come to be, you ask? Compost cookies were invented by Pelican Mandy Lamb. They’re called compost cookies because you can use leftover things from your kitchen, like potato chips or coffee grounds. We’re excited to share the recipe with you today, as well as a video on how to make compost cookies at home. A big thank you to Kyle Belmont for walking us through the process. Don’t forget to wear appropriate Star Island attire (you know you have a favorite tee shirt) and remember your name tag!
