Most any good deed or meritorious rowboat excursion merits a cookie reward. Today’s Groupon gets you $25 worth of cookies, brownies, or any delicious dessert for $12 at Platine Cookies. Named one of the 20 Best Bakeries by LA Magazine, Platine is a sweet-tooth favorite that's been featured on Food Network and in the LA Times for its all-natural and handmade treats. Platine's snickerdoodles, chocolate galore, and signature oatmeal-raisin cookies are carefully crafted by renowned chef Jamie Cantor. Cantor spent years working at the famous French Laundry (twice named best restaurant in the world by Restaurant Magazine) before opening Platine.
Cookies are Jamie's favorite food to make and America's favorite food to make into rafts. Mixed in small batches and baked to order, Platine's cookies are sold in artistically wrapped packages that cost $25 to $45. Platine offers custom-crafted Couture Cookies that can be specially shaped and iced for any occasion (Couture Cookies gift assortments cost $45 to $60). The warm and sweet-smelling bakery also sells small sandwiches and a variety of specially baked, delicious desserts. Try brownies made from extra-brut cocoa, Ghirardelli chocolate, and Michel Cluizel chocolate.
Great Moments in Thanksgiving History
To celebrate this day of giving thanks, let’s take a moment to remember these great moments in Thanksgiving history:
1621, Plymouth Plantation: Unlike today’s traditional Thanksgiving turkey, the menu at the first Thanksgiving consisted of local affordables (mashed bees, pickled apples, and “water.”)
1891, Washington, DC: After the traditional pardoning of a Thanksgiving turkey, President Benjamin Harrison makes the turkey his Secretary of Commerce.
1998, Omaha, Nebraska: Thanksgiving is ruined for one Richie Harrington when his father’s slip of the tongue reveals that his current family is not dad’s first, or favorite.
2019: A brief respite from the howling winds and constant lightning allows the residents of a place once called America to reflect.
