Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie? National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day gives us a good reason celebrate our favorite treat (as if we needed one), and these bakeries have elevated the cookie to the next level.
Levain Bakery: Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookie
We’re nutty for this cookie. Levain Bakery is well-known for their baked goods, but it's their cookies that have people lining up. Their signature Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookie ($4) is the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy. Yum! 167 W. 47th St.
Insomnia Cookies: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Jumbo Deluxe Cookie
Get your ticket to peanut butter-chocolate paradise with this colossal treat. The jumbo cookie is loaded with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. What’s great about this cookie ($3.30) is it’s OK if you’re feeling too lazy to go out and get it because Insomnia Cookies delivers right to your door.
Standard Grill: Salted Caramel Bourbon Ice Cream Sandwich
Try a grown-up twist on Chocolate Chip Cookie Day with a salted caramel bourbon ice cream sandwich, drizzled in espresso hot fudge ($10). It's being served for dessert at the Standard Grill — head over there now though, because it’s only available today in honor of the holiday. 848 Washington St.
Birdbath Green Bakery: Melted Chocolate Chip Cookie
Craving a simple chocolate chip cookie? This is the one to try. The Melted Chocolate Chip Cookie ($5) at Birdbath Green Bakery is delicious and uses only organic ingredients.
Momofuku Milk Bar: Compost Cookie
The Compost Cookie ($2.25) is no joke. Momofuku Milk Bar's kitchen sink dessert is packed with pretzels, potato chips, coffee, oats, graham cracker, butterscotch and, of course, chocolate chips. This junk food cookie is what dreams are made of, folks.
