MSP Cookies

jeanmt | May 8, 2007 10:17 AM

Sadly, tres leche cake; cheapie bakery cake with Crisco frosting; and a good cookie are the only sweets I really crave. Not much of a chocolate or ice-cream gal, though I'd never turn them down (neither would I seek anything like that out).

My point? I'm looking for a bakery or coffee-shop cookie or even chain-store cookie (like at the mall) that I could frequent frequently and buy, say, three cookies at a time. But good. I am a cookie snob, unlike with cheapie bakery cakes. Those chain-coffee-shop Crisco cookies are so disgusting they make me boiling mad. They're overpriced, hard enough to break a tooth on, and taste of nothing but chemicals. I'm getting all worked up thinking about them. The audacity! And they're often one of the few edibles at such places.

At any rate. I know I could and should make a batch (sugar or chocolate chip) at home, but then I'd eat them all. Preferably St. Paul recs as I want to get there quite a lot. I know the bakery near Randolph and Hamline has been mentioned. Plan to check that out today.
