Galaxy Cookies

Ignore the hype on the web site. It doesn't really explain what these cookies are about.

These are very conventional cookies. Unsurprising. They're clearly high quality (you can taste butter and top-drawer ingredients), but they're not not at all fussy. But the attraction is a rare and wondrous balance. The baker has an uncanny touch. It's funny how simple, innately tasty things like cookies can go from being mindlessly yummy to being startlingly good, even inspirational, when simple ingredients come into a really, really, precise and canny balance. Things just snap into focus and you realize you're eating something remarkable; you internally resonate with the sensibility and care level of the chef. And these cookies are all like that.
