One Girl Cookies reminds us of why we love New York, because we absolutely adore the cultural fabric in our small mom & pop businesses. Traditions are interweaved in what they sell, how they sell it, and why. By just strolling the unchartered sidewalks and taking a moment to step into these small worlds, New Yorkers are given the extraordinary opportunity to learn something new about a culture; an invitation to taste new things, hear new languages, see new words, and the likelihood of meeting new people that we might have never engaged with. It is one of the great benefits of raising a child in the city.
At this exquisite cookie shop in Cobble Hill, you can learn the story of owner Dawn Casale who used to sell cookies out of her West Village apartment and David, her husband, a baker too! You can also catch a glimpse of their love story on the family tree of baker’s in the sunlit sitting room while trying a Lucia, Lana, or Susanna – all lip smacking cookies from the classic collection.
Come for a breakfast of yogurt with stewed apples (seasonal fruits), baked eggs, scones and muffins or be patient ‘til the clock strikes eleven and run to enjoy the soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth whoopie pies and spiky cupcakes.
Bite size cookies, cupcakes, European cakes, and gift boxes of whoopee pies are also available for order at www.onegirlcookies.com. Call in advance, some may only be available for pick-up.
One Girl Cookies is located at 68 Dean Street between Smith St. and Boerum Pl. One can take the F to Bergen or the 4/5, 2/3 to Borough Hall.
