Milk and Cookies Bakery
Behind the petite storefront of Milk & Cookies Bakery, baking gurus churn out all manner of cookies and baked goods from fine ingredients such as European-style butter, Valrhona cocoa, and organic milk from Ronnybrook Farm. As the aroma of fresh-baked pastries drifts out onto the street, patrons consider a case of peanut-butter cookies, snickerdoodles, and ice-cream sandwiches trapping creamy gelato. To keep their culinary skills sharp, the chefs constantly craft new confections such as the recent Bacon Smack cookie, which is studded with candied bacon and toffee and laced with maple syrup. “Once you’ve sampled the delectably lethal graham-cracker, dark-chocolate, and toffee-chip magic bars, each enriched with sweetened condensed milk and dusted with coconut,” says New York magazine, “any thoughts of diets will likely be relegated to your dreams.” In addition to their standard tempting confections, the bakers craft cakes and cookies with custom designs for parties and custom shapes for when you’re trying to pretend the mouth hole on your costume isn’t all wrong.
