Dorie Greenspan has been one of my baking idols for years now. I used to read Baking with Dorie religiously, and still check out her latest recipes appearing on the web. Her cookbooks have been on my wish lists for years now too. She is without a doubt one of the majors in the baking world. You can imagine the squeals I had when I heard she was going to finally be selling her cookies!
Day One lunch was taken by Daniel Boulud. Day Two was sold out for the most part. Day Three I used the snowstorm to my advantage. "Brownie, four cookies procured, $10, will meet up after work to eat! Excited!"
Ginger and I needed for an afternoon pick-me-up. The slightly crunchy outer layer reveal a fudgey interior, packed with nutty goodness while the cherries give you a good ratio of super-sweet spots. Of all that I had, and I didn't have all her cookies, this was my favorite (followed by the Molasses Spice). But at $3.50 a cookie, I can't see myself buying this very often.
Dorie Greenspan's Cookie Bar will be a Mizu Salon through this Saturday, the 13th. They open at 11am and go until sold out. Be sure to check their Twitter.
Mizu Salon is at 505 Park Avenue between 59th and 60th Street, look for the pink ribbon umbrella trees that belong to the florist next door.
