Cookies complement a glass of milk the way a fine cheese complements a glass of wine or a Hot Pocket complements bitter tears. Dine on delectable dairy-sponges with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of cookies ordered online from JustTheCookies.com.
JustTheCookies happened on the right amalgamation of ingredients for their sweet dough disks 25 years ago and have stuck with it ever since. The bakery has a no-frills approach to the art of making edibles; all its cookie varieties are old-fashioned, time-tested tastes—chocolate chip, peanut butter, chocolate chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and sugar—and the come to your doorstep not wrapped in frilly pink bows or sewn inside a teddy bear but as their humble selves, with nothing but the fine flavors and not-oversoft, not-overhard consistency their makers gave them. Cookies cost $16 for a dozen; you can select an assorted batch or send a single variety to send to a faraway loved one or lonesome tollbooth operator.
Though Justthecookies.com has yet to receive many online reviews, more than 700 Facebookers are fans.
