My crush on Brooklyn deepens. My awe and envy of girls who have made their sweet dreams reality make me nearly weep. It happened a couple months ago at Sugar Shop, the bright, poppy, delicious candy shop just off Court Street opened by Jen Bischoff and Sara Houchins. And it happened this weekend at One Girl Cookies.
Just look at this place. Opened a couple years ago by Dawn Casale and Dave Crofton, it’s the essence of a neighborhood gem.
…with café seating with a view of the tree-lined street. Sigh.
And simple, beautiful homemade baked goods.
Trays and trays of cookies, many named after special people in Dawn’s life.
Dangerously spiked cupcakes.
A rotating roster of moist coffee and layer cakes.
And… whoopie pies.
Old-fashioned yet modern. Comfortable, authentic, original, heartfelt. This girl wants her own One Girl Cookies!
