Milk & Cookies in Greenwich Village has quickly become one of my most favorite sweet treat spots in NYC. I was introduced to this delicious bakery a few years ago when I went on a Foods of New York Tour and I haven't been able to stay away since. In the shop that is probably as big as your studio apartment and with enough seating for almost nine people, all of the products are made fresh daily. They sell all kinds of freshly baked sweet treats. The cookies are to die for. With unique flavors like Bacon Smacks, Dark Chocolate Toffee, and my personal favorite Salted Oat Surprise, they keep people coming back for more.
Not only does Milk & Cookies have the most amazing cookies, they also have fantastic ice cream. If you want to enjoy the ultimate sweet sin you should indulge in an ice cream sandwich. You choose the cookies and the ice cream and then prepare for a flavor explosion.
If you've tried all the cookies in house and can't find exactly what you're craving- don't fear because you can design your own cookie batter! First you choose your base- peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla, oatmeal or sugar, and then your toppings: marshmallows, cappuccino chips, mint chips and almonds to name a few, then the friendly bakers mix it all up and bake your cookies for you or pack your mix up to take home. Taking home the batter is brilliant because if your anything like me you need a cookie at the oddest hours of the night and its always good to be prepared.
So head on over to Milk & Cookies at 19 Commerce Street, NY, NY 10014 and treat yourself, don't cheat yourself. Can't get to NYC right now? You can buy the Milk & Cookies Recipe Book and bake their amazing recipes in your own kitchen. Enjoy your cookie break!
