I’m a little biased when it comes to cookies. My sis is an amazing baker/decorator and she and her husband started a successful Canadian cookie business called the Steveston Cookie Company
and I can always count on her to create ANY kind of cookie I can imagine.
I also grew up sampling cookies in my bestie s’s kitchen
and I’m thankful I can still count on her to have amazing goodies whenever we meet up. (I can’t tell you how much it made me giggle when I linked to her blog and her most recent post was…..corn
COOKIES. Dear S, great minds do always think alike xoxo!) And I know that my freshman 15 was largely (*gulp*) due to the fact that Blue Chip
Cookies on the UBC campus
were too irresistible.
But here in Seattle, cookies seem like they’re just starting to get the popularity they deserve. I’ve been hearing a lot about a bakery called Hello Robin
lately and I love the idea of a new stand alone cookie shop in a town full of cupcakes and pie and I’ve heard hers are the best in town right now. (I still love all things cupcake and pie, but this just adds another sweet to the rotation!) And now that the Seattle Sounders seaso
n (we’ve been fans for years now!) is starting up again, I know we’ll be have a lot more opportunities to revisit Cow Chip
n Pioneer Square too.
My guys recently enjoyed the make-your-own-cookie from the kid’s meal at the Hi-Life
. This delicacy is on the kids’ meal and it’s only a couple of dollars to create a cookie while you wait for your food and have it baked while you eat so it’s warm and ready for dessert. I wish there was something like this on the grownup menu too!
So I’m hoping all my running counteracts the cookie madness I foresee in the next little while. I may have to get this shirt
Or one that says “I’m running BECAUSE of all the cookies.” We’ll see.
But my favorite place for cookies is still the Dahlia Bakery and this little batch of cookies I saw a few weeks ago that makes me love them even more. There is no better reason to buy cookies than if they help others. These have to be the best kind of cookies in the world.
I definitely think cookies have a lovely place in this dessert-filled city and I can’t wait to see more of them. Have you noticed cookies popping up everywhere where you are?
