This Little Cookie's shortbread cookie

Atomica | Jul 24, 200711:00 AM     3

While at Rainbow Grocery yesterday, I spied a tall package of a dozen shortbread cookies that looked good. They are made by This Little Cookie. Molasses cookies are also available. I wasn't sure about buying the large package of what surely were expensive cookies (no price on display) that I had never tried, so I was happy to see a package of 4 at the checkout stand. I bought the small package instead.

These shortbread cookies are nothing short of outstanding. For me, they are the Platonic ideal of the shortbread cookie. They have the perfect sweet/salty (she uses fleur de sel), perfect buttery-ness, and perfect color and texture. Best cookie I have had in eons, and I sent them a note telling them so. Turns out that This Little Cookie is a company started by a (current) baker at Tartine. Her bio says she's also worked with Michael Recchiuti and at Chez Panisse. She does special order cakes and other goods too. Her damn shortbread cookie has made a believer out of me.

I have zero connection to the business and I don't know the owner or anyone connected with it, just to be clear.
