First bite of Downtown Cookies

We were in Robinsons Magnolia one afternoon and chanced upon the kiosk of Downtown Cookies. Their cookies looked interesting and appetizing, at least enough to make us buy 4 kinds.

The cookies were soft and moist, just a tad too crumbly.

First one was the Soho: a cookie with dark chocolate, hazelnut, and peanut butter. We couldn't sense the darkness of the chocolate and the hazelnut. The peanut butter component was notable, but it wasn't consistent; we were able to taste some bitter peanut flavor.

Next, the New York Chiptail, made with white chocolate and macadamia nuts. This one was delicious! We liked the balanced sweetness and the pronounced buttery flavor. And it was teeming with macadamia! We didn't feel shortchanged at all.

On to the next cookie, the Yankee. This cookie had the classic pairing of bacon and maple syrup. Yummy! The bacon added just the right amount of saltiness that tempered that more rounded and deeper sweetness of the syrup.

Last on our plate, the Shibuya, made with matcha and white chocolate. It had a good mixture of flavors. We thought the earthiness of the matcha would dominate the whole treat but it was nicely toned down by the chocolate. Yum!

Based on our first bites and nibbles of these cookies, we wouldn't mind coming back for more.

Downtown Cookies is at the food court of Robinsons Magnolia.
