For too long, cookies have been relegated to a supportive capacity, holding together ice-cream sandwiches or giving their lives to make milk chunkier. Give cookies a well-deserved starring role with today's deal: for $6, you get $12 worth of baked goods at Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe on State Street.
Step into Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe's old-timey storefront, which evokes soda shops of yesteryear, and let the succulent smells of sugary snacks and baking bread amplify your appetite. Then gaze into glass cases at more than a dozen varieties of cookies, and choose one with a gooey raspberry ($.75 each), apple, or peanut-butter center ($7.25 per dozen). Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe's seasoned chefs also bake caramel cups ($4.09 per half-dozen) and filled brownie bites ($6 per dozen), the first bite of which releases warm, gooey fudge into the air. If doughy disks don't tickle your taste buds, go for a scone ($.90 each), muffin ($1.20 each), gift basket of treats ($18.99 plus tax for one dozen), or breakfast biscotti ($8.99 per pound). Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe encourages early risers to nab the first batches at its weekday 7 a.m. opening time. Visit the website to view a compendium of goods and pricing.
