Anthony’s Cookies of San Francisco

I think of all the sweets in the world—cupcakes, soufflés, hot chocolate, hot fudge sundaes, macarons, whoopie pies, brownies—cookies are my absolute favorite. They just are.

When I was in San Francisco before the holidays, I coerced one of my friends into journeying deep into the Mission to go to a cookie shop I had read about: Anthony’s Cookies.

This place is just all cookies, all the time. Sure, you can get some cold organic milk to go with them, but they focus on one thing and focus on doing it well.

Admittedly, some flavors were better than others.

The oatmeal cranberry was just okay—a titch dry.

The double chocolate was okay, too.

But the toffee chip? Buttery, creamy, gritty deliciousness.

Enough to lure me back to try new flavors the next time I’m in town.

Hi Rosemary! The title of my book is Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate). If you do pick it up (well, thank you) but also let me know what you think!
