My friend Light knows I love cookies. I love to bake them and eat them. He has even been lucky enough to be on my holiday cookie delivery list. Yes, I have a list and I actually drive them to each of my friend’s homes to personally deliver the little morsels of joy to them.
Light had gone to a new cookie shop called Milk Jar Cookies. He ranted and raved about it and told me I must try it. I admit, I am a pretty tough critic when it comes to cookies, so I didn’t rush to get there. Well, a client of mine, Lindsey who works for E!, asked if we could have our meeting at Milk Jar Cookies. It is located near their offices on Wilshire and I decided it was the perfect excuse to try the cookies.
Milk Jar Cookies is a small shop that is so cute and exactly what I would want a cookie shop to be. It is simple and sweet, with pretty little details that make all the difference. The color palette is pastels and natural wood, with chandeliers made out of old fashioned milk jars. This store is cute as a button and the cookies are amazing. I usually never like the cookies I try better than my own, so this really impressed me.
The flavors are creative and the cookies are dense. They sell local roasted coffee and milk from a local dairy and serve the beverages in mason jars with colorful stripped paper straws. Ice cream from a local creamery is used for their ice cream sandwiches and can be ordered on the side. It is the perfect place to catch up with a girlfriend or bring your children for a special treat. They even deliver their cookies for gifts. I was so impressed I sent a dozen to a dear friend the next day. They have gift boxes starting at amounts of half a dozen up to four dozen. There is also a “Cookie of the Month” delivery option. Delivery is available to most destinations in the United States.
My favorite flavor was the Chocolate Pecan Caramel. I have included a link to their website below where you can find the full list of flavors and ordering info. I recommend you drop by the shop if you find yourself in LA and enjoy these circle shaped sweet treats.
