What's your favorite cookie? I had cookies from COOKIE GENERATION, a new cult producer, and they were outstanding

    they ain't fancy but what get's my fancy are the chocolate chip cookies at Whole Foods-just one can make my day (one is like a whole desert it's soooo good).

    I ordered from Ruby and Violette UWS for business gifts--I get rave reviews.

        Love, love, love Ruby et Violette! They're located on 50th just off 10th Ave in a little basement apartment -- very easy to miss. Also, call ahead since some have reported they close at odd hours, though I've never personally had a problem.

          Whole Foods has a cookie that, if memory serves me correctly, is called the "monster cookie." It has everything--oatmeal, choc chips, nuts, "cane" sugar, etc. Usually I am not a fan of concepts such as this (I hate everything bagels!), but this cookie is awesome. It's moist, gooey, decadent but not overly rich, and, well...awesome!

            The lemon coconut and oatmeal raisin WF cookies are outstanding. And I trick myself into thinking they're healthier ;)

          City Bakery and Jacques Torres both have fabulous cookies.

            The all time best cookies in the NYC area can be found at Baked in Red Hook section of Brooklyn. Worth the trip but call ahead to see what they've got left. They sell out fast

              I recently discovered the Italian cookies at Parisi Brothers Bakery in Astoria, Queens. They are, hands down, the BEST Italian cookies I have ever had - and I've sampled from countless Italian bakeries in NYC!

              The ones at Parisi Brothers are not too crisp, not too soft. They really are delicious!

              Worth a trip on the N train! :-)

                levain on uws for chocolate chip; ruby et violette for fancy, smaller types.

                  Levain bakery's dark chocolate peanut butter.
                  They are so rich and dense, it takes a few days to get through one!

                      My picks for cookies are Jacques Torres (mudslide cookies are gooey and chocolatey), the cc cookie from City Bakery (I would prefer their pretzel croissant but that's another post), Whole Foods' lemon coconut and chocolate chip cookies are great, Levain Bakery's cc are gooey (basically it's a supersized cookie dough that's been barely baked), a new one called Milk & Cookies at 19 Commerce St. all their cookies are great and their brownies are good too.

                        The best chocolate chip cookies in Manhattan? Haven't tried Whole Foods, Torres, Levain; love City Bakery for their buffet, cold chocolate, melted choc chip cookie (really a thin brownie w/ a crisp top & bottom) but theirs was too buttery; Amy's was very good.
