SF: Hot Cookie - penis macaroon?

Lousy name for a search, so if it has been reported here i'd appreciate the link.
The reviews of this place are really making me laugh. However, it seems they are also good coolies and in addition to x-rated stuff, they make regular cookies such as chocolate toffee, cocoa cayenne, chocolate chip, snicker doodle, white chocolate chip, and brownies
I found a food soul mate today whose reviews are on spot with my tastes for the places i've also been. Since this got a thumbs up, I thought I'd ask about it.
Located in the Castro and open until 1 am ... so if you need a little sugar after midnight this might be the place.
heh, it's difficult not to jump into innuendo with this reply.
Hot Cookie is a fun place to take people when visiting the Castro the first time, but I don't think I'd recommend it to a Chowhound. Their cookies are fine, but more often than not they're raw in the center. Anthony's Cookies does a much better job at balancing a soft center with a crisp outside.
Even still, I do eat there several times a year. I can't think of cheaper late night snacks in that area, and it's good to tide you over while waiting for a film at the Castro.
i haven't been to that place in a few years, but it always seemed more about the novelty than the taste (bland, as i recall). might give it another try
Yeah, Hot Cookie is not really a Chowhoundy place. The penis macaroons (and brand new vulva macaroons!) are fun, but none of the cookies are particularly interesting or noteworthy, and their by-the-pound pricing usually turns out to be really expensive ($2-3 per cookie). I live three doors down and never really stop in except for the occasional late-night drunk cookie.
But it might be fun to take one and dunk it into an Irish coffee next door at Twin Peaks if you're really curious.
