You make me happy ... Cookie Man

For a city that gives you great brownies, cheesecakes, homemade chocolates or even doughnuts, Mumbai is really bare when it comes to good cookies. There is of course Allison who once baked chocolate chip cookies for me which were divine. She and her pretty little daughter Tara vacuum sealed these and got them for me they visited us sometime back. But Allison lives in Sydney. 

The one place I head to when I want good cookies at Mumbai is to Cookie Man. The Cookie Man chain spreads across the country and I have seen its outlets at Calcutta, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai.

I love their soft chewy cookies. The chocolate based ones. Soft cookies are my favourite. But I love their crisp ones too, specially milk cookies with chocolate chips. They are not as good as Allison’s cookies but are the best around. Just what I need with a hot cuppa coffee. They are no Cookie Man outlets in Bandra unfortunately. I guess life can never be perfect. I have spotted a couple of shops at Oberoi Mall, Goregaon and Inorbit, Malad though.

As Scarlett wrote, it is easy to spot a Cookie Man outlet. You can't miss the fragrance of fresh bakes and butter wafting around you. Drawing you in its spell as you run behind Hansel and Gretel.

I went to the outlet at Inorbit today. I buy cookies from there and sneak them to nearby the Costa my little bit of ‘me time’ in a mall. 

The guys at the Cookie Man store were in a good mood today. Comes from working in a happy place I guess. They gave us samples of hot cookies fresh off the oven. Were quite cool with me clicking photographs. And even posed for .
