Unusual cookies are a passion of mine. And man, they are few and far between.
If I am truly lucky, I will find one new worthwhile unique cookie-per annual vacation.
Unique? I am talking cookies that are one-of-a-kind, most likely because of their particular combination of ingredients,and where delicious is a given.
Mocha shortbread coookies at la fete(?) in mendocino
coconut shortbread-like sandwich cookies at oakville(?) grocery in st helena (made by an outside vendor, tony chiapetta(?), who used to be a pastry chef in boston)
shortbread cookies with crushed potato chips at Gayle's in Capitola(this yr.)
raisin, walnut and candied orange cookie 'bark' at gayle's in Capitola(this yr.)
For this particular quest- unique amazing cookies- I have not previously found anything in SF ,after looking at:Citizan Cake, Tartine, La Boulangerie, Whole Foods, Miette(?) in the Ferry Bldg.
Any suggestions out there? To me, in our abundant world of 'a bakery on every corner' it doesn't get much tougher than this quest. Thanks much for any specific finds!
