best cookies (to ship out of state)
A lawyer friend recently gave me some pro bono advice, and I want to
send some goodies..... he loves cookies. He is in PA, and in the past
I have sent from some Philly bakeries, but I would like to send from
here. I feel that Rocco and Veneiro are kind of slipping...... any
suggestions for great cookie tins or assorments?
Thank you all for the suggestions! ( I didn't even know about Bruno, I will try them
for myself...I'm Italian-American), though it doesn't look like they ship. .
I don't mind spending money, but I think $6 a cookie is a little much, and I don't
need cookies that huge (Levain) -- I'd rather just send just regular, good cookies
with variety ~ I will check out all these suggestions! And while we're on the sweets topic, can I expand this a little to ask one more thing? Does anyone here know
where I can get outstanding Baba au rhum (without cream)? My recent disenchantment with Rocco came after 2 experiences with bad Baba that had been
overdrenched & tasted awful. It is one of my favorite desserts, but if it sits around,
I've been in NYC for almost 20 years, and I've felt that way as well, having eaten
many a pastry at Rocco. But as I said, on 2 occasions within the last few months, not only the baba but also some pignoli cookies I bought were simply not like they used to be. I never go to the outer boroughs, so there is no point in my posting there. I have plenty of options from the suggestions here....
