The Best Damn Cookie You'll Ever Eat
This last Saturday I posted on my Instagram account about Anthony's Cookies, which then made me think about my all-time favorite cookie. If you are going to New York for business, for pleasure, to visit family, you have to stop at Levain Bakery in the Upper West Side and get a chocolate chip cookie. My experience went like this: I took my first bite and then I was speechless. I have never tasted a chocolate chip cookie like this before. It has the perfect cookie to chocolate chip ratio, the center is just the right amount of soft, the outside is a perfectly golden-brown and crunchy, and walnuts just complete it. It's even better to share this experience with someone. You'll look each other in the eye and without saying anything agree that this is the best cookies you've ever had.
Here's a tip: If you go during lunch, around dinner time, or on the weekend, the line is going to be insane. (It goes pretty quick though.) I used to go early on the weekdays and I was in and out of there.
