Cuckoo for Cookies

I’m a baker, so it should come as no surprise that I have high standards for baked goods. I hold myself to those high standards and always try to improve on my previous efforts. But while I’m not especially fond of burnt, dry, mediocre sweets, I have a heart. I’m not going to insult a friend who hands me his first-ever peanut blossom or advise a dinner party hostess when her cake is dry. I’ll just bite my tongue as I bite the homemade “eh.”

And now, having said all that, allow me to be foodsnobby for one second. When I am paying for the goods, meaning I am in complete control having selected the bakery and the items, the goods had better be, well, good! Paying for burnt, dry, mediocre is no fun.

I am very happy to share a cookie company with you that is oh so GOOD! I just discovered it and it passes the Marni Taste of Approval with flying colors. In fact, these are some of the best cookies I have ever tasted and are going to give Mrs. Beasley’s a run for her money. A giant box of assorted cookies, some regular, some sandwich-style, was delivered to my office about a week ago as a holiday gift. The sandwich ones are my favorite because there are so many flavors in a single bite. My top picks are the carrot cake sandwich cookie, the peanut butter and jam sandwich cookie, and the peppermint pattie sandwich cookie, which is two chocolate cookies enveloping a peppermint frosting.

You just don’t expect delivery cookies to be anything but cookie cutter (pardon the pun) unoriginality. These cookies kill that concept and will absolutely be the only cookies I order as gifts, assuming I’m not available to bake my own.

The company is called Cookie Dough Daddy. I believe they are currently only delivering to greater Los Angeles, and you know what that means? If you live anywhere else, you’d better move here.
