Multiple locations – Seattle
This was certainly not my first visit to Macrina. But for some reason, it was the first time I decided to pick up one of these bad boys. In fact, I’m pretty sure that my brother – who lives in Seattle, is often my cookie cohort when I visit the city, and is coincidentally named Rick (no relation to the cookie) – once told me that this cookie was either strange or bad or not awesome. Or something like that.
But with all respect to my big bro, I disagree.
I think it is pretty awesome.
• Slightly underdone (to know me is to know I dig the doughy)
• Good quality chocolate
• Unlikely addition of cubed dried apricots
• Espresso grounds (not necessarily unlikely in a chocolate chip cookie, but an unexpected pairing with dried fruit, in my experience)
• Girth. Baby’s got back.
Yes, it sounds a little strange or bad or not awesome. But really, it is a standout – in a good way. I am totally down with this cookie.
