Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
This pop-up shop is on the edge of the market (before you disappear into the chaotic mass of shoppers) and specializes in all fair-trade manufactured crafts. Sure, housewares, clothing, and bags. But cookies too.
A few years ago I discovered (and wrote about) their Ambrosia cookie which is a unique sweet-savory concoction of fig, pear, sage, and honey. This year, I went crazy for their Casbah. Dark chocolate and fresh mint is a perfect combination – and especially around Christmas.
But all of their cookies are well-balanced and feature real ingredients. And I haven’t even mentioned the perfect soft, chewy texture of the dough. As ethical as the merchandise at the stall, that’s how delicious the cookies are. Pick up a dozen. Santa will thank you.
