I knew I needed to update my blog!! So I told myself I’d update it after work on Friday. The problem was I leave work at 6 and many bakeries close at 6. I found out that Angel Maid Bakery, a bakery close to my home that I’ve been wanting to visit, didn’t close until 7. I also have been trying to work out more, so I made myself a deal: make it to Angel Maid before it closes and I can eat a cookie. Oh man, I suck so bad at running. But I made it with a little more than 5 minutes to spare!!! They were out of almost everything by the time I got there. I asked how much the box of chocolate chip cookies were and it was $7.50. I only had $4. I almost grabbed a peanut butter cookie for $2ish, until I SAW THIS!!!!:
That was a no-brainer FOR SURE! It was just under $4. I had previously planned on running back, but… yeah that didn’t happen. Well I didn’t want to mess up the cookie!!!
On the way back, I saw a gentleman struggling with full hands trying to open his trunk. I helped and then he, seeing my cookie, asked if it was my birthday. I sheepishly replied, “no… I just like cookies!”
The small chocolate chip cookie (on the mouth there) was really crunchy and had a great ratio of chocolate chips to cookie. It fulfills the need for a cookie, but it’s not my favorite; I would rank it above average but not perfect because of how crunchy it is (I prefer a more moist, soft cookie).
The softness was found in the ginger cookie. I actually don’t love ginger cookies but I liked this one!! It was thick, soft and chewy. The sprinkles gave it some yummy crunch, and the layer of frosting that glued the sprinkles to the cookie provided an extra measure of sweetness. Alone, the cookie was nice and full of spices — I think I would actually still eat this cookie without the sprinkles, which is surprising because most ginger cookies are bland.
I’m going to stop by Angel Maid again! Must try more cookies… actually, they’re known for their cakes. And now, this cookie. Oh, and I didn’t eat the eyes, they are very hard and I can’t tell if it’s made with anything gelatin-y.
