Baking enthusiast grandmas, step aside; Milk & Cookies is the new go-to destination to get your cookie fix. Just one step inside is enough to envelop you in the unmistakable scent of freshly baked cookies, and glancing at the various baked creations that the fellow Milk & Cookies customers are scarfing down is enough to make anyone drool.
My friends and I all opted for different cookie ‘wiches, and they each contained enough ice cream and cookies for 2 days worth of calories (slight exaggeration, but they’re still huge). There are a couple featured creations on a blackboard for those who like to stick to the classics (like the “Over the Rainbow”- M&M sugar cookies with vanilla gelato rolled in M&Ms for a vibrant take on the cookie sandwich, or the “Grasshopper”- double chocolate cookies with fresh mint gelato), but the possibilities for mixing and matching cookies, ice cream flavors, and toppings is seemingly endless.
I chose to go with one ‘smores cookie (hands down the best cookie I have ever had), one chocolate chip cookie, vanilla ice cream, and cookie crunch, and my friends chose combinations using M&Ms, sprinkles, sugar cookies, double chocolate cookies, and oatmeal raison cookies. The list of the varying types of cookies is extensive, featuring other favorites like peanut butter, snickerdoodle, and salted milk chocolate caramel, and there is also an overwhelming amount of toppings available for your cookie ‘wich to be rolled in, including Fruity Pebbles, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and (of course) sprinkles.
Why stop at a cookie ‘wich, though? Milk & Cookies offers stand-alone cookies, rice crispy treats, cookie dough (no one’s going to judge you if you eat it out of the container instead of waiting to bake it), different flavored brownies (including raspberry cheesecake), cupcakes, magic bars, and cookie cake. Also, if you’re planning on dragging your poor dog to a bakery full of the scent of baked goods in the oven, don’t even think about leaving without all natural peanut butter dog bones as an apology.
If you want to impress your coworkers, try bringing in a Milk & Cookies cookie, brownie, or bar platter, or just reserve the bakery for a private party, where guests can design and bake their own cookies. Another perk of Milk & Cookies is the delivery option for when you can’t be bothered to get dressed: delivery fees for New York City range from 0$ (in West Village) to 35$ in Long Island, and people who don’t live in the city can get Milk & Cookies delivered through FedEx, anywhere from CT to CA.
If you want to ruin every other cookie by setting the highest standards for all future baked goods, Milk & Cookies (located at 19 Commerce St.) is a must-visit.
