Do not adjust your computer screen! This is not a dream! You read that headline right: Cheetos Cookies are real, and you can eat them with your face!
This modern miracle was invented by Ross Canter, co-owner and baker at Cookie Good in Santa Monica, CA. Here is how he described the invention process to LAist:
“I knew it had to be thick and chewy, salty and cheesy, have the soft crunch and slight corny flavor of Cheetos and, if possible, it’d be great if the cookie could turn fingertips orange,” he said. “The next day, armed with a party-sized bag of Cheetos and a tub of cheddar cheese powder, we got to work. The result was everything I hoped it’d be.”
Canter estimates that each cookie is roughly 30% cheesy goodness, and customers say that they really do taste like Cheetos, but “more buttery.” And yes, they do turn your fingers orange.
