Schmackary’s is the reason why I have to put in extra time on the treadmill each week!
We found this cookie shop while on the way to eat dinner after taking in a Rock of Ages show not too long ago. As it was almost brand spanking new I felt it my duty as true New York citizen to check it out as our dessert option. I stuck my head in and asked when they closed and was told midnight. Wow – stays open late and it also gave me a reason to cheat on my diet a bit!
They offer a nice little selection of cookie varieties in a few different sizes. From their modern classics, to seasonal sensations, to other baked treats, and even milkshakes this place is a sweet tooth’s delight. Coffee, tea, and espresso are also served here. We were drawn to two cookies that we bought and took home to enjoy with some coffee. I felt that if I was going to be a gluttonous pig then better to do it in the privacy of my own home. Plus, it would stop me from buying even more cookies if we were outta there!
White Chocolate Cherry Chunker – which is made with white chocolate, Montmorency tart cherries, oats, and cinnamon.
Both were the old-fashioned standard size. I have to say that each cookie stood out on it’s own with distinct flavors. The Maple Bacon had a smokey taste to it with a tinge of sweetness and saltiness that helped even out the flavor. The first few bites are odd tasting but as it melts in your mouth the bacon flavor comes through in a subtle way. The Cherry Chunker was just filled with big chunks of ingredients. The cherries they use are delicious and juicy, while the white chocolate helped level out the tartness. Both cookies were moist in the middle with a nice harder crust on the edges – just as I like them – and each were totally devour worthy!
Friendly guys working the counter that answered any questions we had. Only a few high tables to sit at so it’s really a grab and go spot. Not the cheapest cookies but worth a try as a once in a while treat as they are worth it. They are really delicious! Even a gluten free cookie choice on hand.
Good thing this place is well across town from where I live on the east side, as my inner fattie is trying hard to come back out and temptation like this would be hard to deny!
