I crave some sort of food item everyday.
Today, all I wanted was a big...fat...gooey...hot...shamless...so wrong but so right chocolate chip cookie.
So here is a little tribute to the cookies that I've had in my past.
Let's start things off right with one of my best chocolate chip cookie memories at Baked in NYC...
|Baked NYC Chocolate Chip Cookie|
Definitely one of the best cookies ever.
HUGE, moist, and dense.
Sits like a rock in your tummy but is so so soooo worth it.
|JD's Chippery Cookies|
Next up, JD's Chippery in Dallas, TX.
These cookies taste unlike any other cookie I have ever had.
For the life of me, I can not re-create this these gems.
Super buttery, soft, and just...perfect.
This little cookie shop was about 7 minutes away from my work.
Priorities got a little skewed come 3:00 PM.
Accounts payables or cookies? Hmmm...
|Double Doozie from The Great American Cookie Company|
Next, the classic Double Doozie from The Great American Cookie Company.
This sugary cookie-sandwich bomb will go down in history as one of my all time favorite childhood memories. Is that sad?
Yeah, I was a little chub, so what.
These things were worth every little fat roll that jiggled as I walked around the mall...by myself...with my mom's old non-working cell phone strapped to my ear while I pretended to talk to my...friends.
And I may or may not have had head gear too.
Extremely hot? Table for one?
|Pokey O's Ice Cream Sandwich|
Ok ok, let's return to Dallas and go to Pokey O's.
Oh Pokey O's. What to say about Pokey O's...
They bake all of their amazing cookies on site and pair them with your choice of Blue Bell ice cream to create a lovely little cold, but somehow still warm, ice cream sandwich.
All of their cookies are baked to perfection, so the cookies are still super soft and hug the ice cream scoop like a big bear hug. Never breaking or falling apart...just...incredible.
|Jacque Torres Cookie|
Now, I had to throw in a fancy smancy chocolate chip cookie - Jacque Torres' chocolate chip cookie in NYC.
There are no words.
|Great Harvest Cookies|
Next up, Great Harvest jumba wumba cookies.
Don't let the flatness fool you, these guys are soft, rich, and bigger than your head. Fo real.
|Tiny Boxwoods Cookies|
Here is a picture of the hugely publicized Tiny Boxwood's chocolate chip cookies here in Houston.
I haven't ever actually eaten one because they sell out so fast! Tiny's only makes a certain number each day, and when they are gone, they're gone! Hmmmm, maybe someday :)
|Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookie Bars|
These beauts are my pride and joy: Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookie Bars.
I've been chowing down on these babies for about 15 years now. They never disappoint.
|Fleur de Sel Chocolate Chip Cookies|
Here is another batch of my cookie offspring...my Fleur de Sel Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Sweet, salty, ooey, gooey greatness. NOM.
|Levain Bakery Cookies|
And last, but certainly not least, the cookie that I aspire to put in my face someday.
The Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie at Levain Bakery in NYC.
I CRINGE at the fact the Brent and I completely skipped over this bakery while in NYC this past September. They specialize in their 6 oz enormous, soft, warm, buttery cookies.
Ummm, if my math is correct, that is a HALF POUND of amazing cookie goodness...and it could be mine...all mine.
So there ya go. A tribute to what could be the greatest food invention of all time.
Now go celebrate this wonderful food group. Eat cookies.
