Have you ever indulged in The Cookie? We sure hope so. Some may say it's our name to fame. We can't entirely disagree. The Cookie truly is a chocolate chunk and walnut masterpiece. It comes directly from the hands of our amazingly talented French chef who tested out more recipes than he can even count...until it was finally, just right.
To say Chef Christophe put tender, love, and care into the creation would be quite the understatement. And while he can whip up just about any fancy French pastry, The Cookie is one of his favorite recipes. Yes, it is just that good.
And if you've had even a single bite of the buttery, soft, and chunky chocolate-y goodness, then you know.
An all butter cookie containing more than 60% Belgian chocolate and toasted walnuts, we serve it warm all day at most of our stores. Enjoy it with some milk or a cup of hot coffee and enjoy every single decadent bite,
