Billy's Cookies--truly like homemade

I am a serious cookie snob, as i love to bake and have a brother (not Billy, I promise) who is a baker. Peanut butter w/peanut chips was not too sweet and had fabulous, slightly underbaked consistency. Nice texture too b/c of chips. Ginger cookies w/butterscotch chips--sounds weird, and is perhaps a tad too sweet, but crisp on outside, chewy center, heaven! Chocolate chips, tasted like mom's, (who incidentally loved them). The oatmeal raisin were good if you like them chewy but not at all crunchy (i don't). Snickerdoodle were crisp and just the right amt of cinnamon on top. Be forewarned, you can eat way too many of these, though you actually don't feel sick! A tribute to their being not overly sweet!
Tried only the cookies, so can't vouch for the other stuff. 9th Ave bet 19th and 20th.
