I was able to scamper uptown today for Dorie Greenspan's Pop-Up Cookie Bar and Food Blogger meet 'n' greet. I am extremely glad I did. The little box of cookies I have ("I'll have one of each please!") is now hiding behind one of my monitors so no one in the office spots it...
The Cookie Bar Pop up has popped down for now (the cookies all sold out), but you can check here for future engagements.
So far, I've enjoyed a Jammer, which is a combo of sablés, Sarabeth jam and streusel. It's like a cake in cookie form. I especially loved the streusel topping and the thickly cut bed of cookie on which it was perched. In the cab ride back to the office I started in on a Chocolate Chunker, which is the winner for me. SO moist. Ridiculously so (probably because of the Valrhona Chocolate – cocoa, pure unsweetened, Jivara Milk Chocolate and Extra-Bitter) with whole salted cashews and giant dried cherries. It knocked my socks off. Well, it was either the cookie or the cab driver's inventive traffic maneuvers.
Definitely head over to the Cookie Bar NYC website to stay updated on the next pop-up!
And thanks to Dorie Greenspan for the rad cookies. Yeah, I said the cookies were rad. So?
