Gallery: Ask A Pastry Chef: What To Eat At Eleni's New York

"Big Apple" Gift Box
“These cookies really symbolize all of the fantastic icons of the city I am proud to call home. These hand-iced ‘conversation cookies’ are a best seller in our New York store. Who wouldn’t want to take home a little piece of NYC that was sweet enough to eat?”
Crisp Collection
Crisp Collection
“I know I was only supposed to pick a few items so I kind of cheated by picking the entire collection as one item. Our Crisp Collection is a take on all the classic favorites: Crispy chocolate chip, pink sugar, ginger snappy, oatmeal chip & beyond butterscotch. It’s a homemade taste that both me and my staff can’t resist.”
Red Velvet Cupcakes

“There is nothing more enjoyable than red velvet cupcakes. The colorful cake, hint of chocolate flavor, cream cheese frosting & extra cake topper makes the picture perfect dessert... because who needs sprinkles when you can have some extra cake?”
Oatmeal Raisin Drop Cookies
Oatmeal Raisin Drop Cookies
“My mother's famous oatmeal-raisin cookies are where it all started. These moist and soft baked drop cookies are a very personal favorite of mine. The recipe is how I turned my side- business into a fully-fledged cookie empire. Did I mention they are vegan too?”
Color Me! Cookies
Color Me! Cookies
“A cookie decorating party for everyone! As a mom, I really wanted to come up with a concept that kids and adults could enjoy together—without the hassle of baking. White hand-iced cookies & food safe edible ink markers were just the thing. Color Me! cookies are the perfect no mess activity & come in all shapes and themes. It has become a really special tradition that my children and I enjoy.“
