2011 Best Cookie, Chocolate Sandwich

Hi-Rise Bread Company

Choosing just one of Hi-Rise’s cookies is a little like being forced to choose between your children. The almond macaroons taste like an intense nutty cloud. The oatmeal coconut, studded with whole pecans, are as chewy as can be. But it’s the deep, dark chocolate sandwich cookies—more brownielike than crunchy and double-stuffed with an extra scoop of vanilla cream—that truly take the, er, cake.
