tamar had cookies at her party yesterday made by the owner of zucker bakery in the east village, a good friend of hers. i can’t eat gluten, except for a bite here or there, but i splurged and tried these… and they were some of the best cookies i’ve ever tasted. the one on the right was like a delicate shortbread with a layer of dulce de leche inside and coconut on the edge. the one on the left was chocolate and coffee, somehow perfectly airy and dense at the same time. wow. i’ll have to take my mom to the bakery when she visits next, i know she will love them.
