Whether you are a chocolate chip, snickerdoodle or confetti fan, everyone loves a good cookie! New York is known for having the best of the best and there is no shortage when it comes to cookies! However, I know people have different preferences when it comes to cookies: gooey, chewy, cakey, crispy, etc. To save your stomachs from a sugar-induced ache, I have decided to review the top 10 that the city has to offer so you can make sure you’re getting just the right one.
Levain Bakery’s Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie
The fact that this cookie is served warm changes everything. It tastes like it just came out of the oven, which it probably did. It is quite large which makes room for the gooey center. Think more of a meal, not a snack.
William Greenberg Black & White Cookie
This is as classic as it gets. The cookie is so cake-ey and the fondant icing is the perfect texture. Overall, it tastes sort of like a frosted, cake donut. My favorite in the city!
By The Way Bakery’s Almond Cookie
Unlike any other cookie, this almond cookie has a unique texture; harder on the outside but so gooey and sticky on the inside. Tastes like a light, sweet almond cloud.
Ovenly’s Peanut Butter Cookie
It’s pretty hard to go wrong with a peanut butter cookie. Ovenly makes theirs dense with a very peanut-y punch. The salt on top is the perfect touch.
Birdbath Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookie
Yummy, yummy, yummy. Birdbath does a classic chocolate chip perfectly; so chewy and buttery. The sprinkle of salt makes it taste so nice and sweet.
Schmackary’s Funfetti Cookie
Schmackary’s funfetti cookie is perfect for all types of celebrations! This one is great for sugar-lovers as it is quite sweet. So chewy and moist with the addition of icing.
City Cakes Snickerdoodle Cookie
Best snickerdoodle I’ve ever had in my life. It is so large, half of a pound to be exact, so bring someone to share it with. The size, however, has the advantage of being so chewy yet sturdy.
Dominique Ansel’s Cookie Shot
The famous cookie shot does not disappoint. The cookie is gourmet and surprisingly quite chewy for keeping its shape. The small layer of chocolate inside creates a protective layer between the cookie cup and the Tahitian vanilla milk (which is delicious on its own too).
Worlds Best Cookie Dough’s Chocolate Chip Cookie
If you love cookie dough, you will LOVE this place. Although the store is not super fancy, the cookies are amazing. There is more dough than cookie!
3 Monkeys Macaroon’s Chocolate Chip Butterscotch “Cookie”
These are technically macaroons but I’d consider them cookies. They are so chewy and the mix of chocolate chips, butterscotch and coconut gives you the best bite. You order them online and they come the next day if you’re in the city!
