I have 3 favorite cookie moments. The first was when dessert-hitmaker, Dominique Ansel, wowed us all by creating a milk-filled chocolate chip cookie shot glass. Because I love a good food meets fashion moment, my second favorite cookie moment would have to be Karlie’s Kookies. The Momofuku Milk Bar and Karlie Kloss collaboration proved that fashion people do in fact eat, and that you don’t always need dairy and gluten to make a great tasting treat.
Just recently, I came across what I would now consider my all time favorite cookie moment. If you’ve been watching Ellen or watched the Barneys NY Youtube channel lately, you’ll know exactly who I’m talking about. His name is Cory Nieves, a 10 year old who is the CEO and founder of Mr Cory’s Cookies. Armed with a positive outlook, a passion for cookies, and a keen eye for fashion (as you can tell by viewing his Instagram) Mr Cory delivers all natural, 75% organic cookies to happy customers within the New York area.
