Best of Boston

1991 Best Cookie

Tie: Beth Israel Hospital, Cookie Express from Karen’s Kitchen; Bentonwood Cafe

We spent days testing these cookies and trying to decide which was the best: Beth Israel’s oatmeal raisin, Cookie Express’s chocolate chocolate chip, or Bentonwood Cafe’s chocolate-chip meringue. Winners all.
