Thank you to the folks who replied to my message about chocolate chip cookies in KC, particularly to KC-Jane.
Using your suggestion, I called up Browne's and they couldn't have been nicer to me. They delivered a dozen cookies to the hotel and my boyfriend, and the co-workers with whom he shared, enjoyed the cookies very much! They were so large he had leftovers and I got to taste them two days later. They were much better than store-bought, though I sensed they would be best the day they were baked.
Thank you for your help! We appreciate it,
