One step into One Girl Cookies and you'll know you've entered someplace very, very special. First off the shop is immaculate. It also has a large window in the back to catch all of the cookie-making action in progress. Everything is handmade from top-notch ingredients.
There's hand stirred caramel, freshly ground nutmeg, crystalized Thai ginger and oven roasted Turkish hazelnuts. This quest for perfection shows up in the finished product. We sampled some of the chocolate chips cookies, which I hate to say, were better than mom's. The brownies are chocolaty and quite yummy. But our favorite by far are the Lucias. A creamy layer of caramel, topped with milk chocolate, sits atop a perfectly crisp shortbread cookie. They are to die for.
This is One Girl's only shop at the moment, but you can find their cookies at Dean and DeLuca or you can buy them online in nifty little gift boxes at $24 a pound. Smaller packages make for great wedding favors.
We had just one problem with One Girl Cookies. All of the cookies are bite-size. We'd like more bites... please!
