I'm growing really irritated by $3 cookies.
The reason for this is... Mrs. Fields is still damn good for around $1.60. So, here's my question, Chowhounds:
Is there anyone in LA making an excellent chocolate chip cookie for under $3?
I had a good one at Aurelie in Santa Monica place, but it was $3.
I've been to Jamaica's Cakes, Susie Cakes, Vanilla Bake Shop, Essential Chocolate Desserts, Sweet Lady Jane, Patine, and more... and have yet to find a cookie that beats Mrs. Fields for $1.60.
And please spare me any judgment on Mrs. Fields for being corporate / a chain / outdated / etc. Yes, it's all of that... and they still make the best chocolate chip cookie.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
