The Whole Grain Lady Bird cookies from Lark Fine Foods are crunchy three-bite affairs. With a foundation of rolled oats, wheat flour, and plenty of butter, they feature a equal proportion of cranberries and semi-sweet chocolate chips. They have a cozy, homemade feel, sweetened with both brown and white sugar, crunchy on the edges and chewy as you get close to the center. Reliable cookies—the type you'd return to over and over again with a glass of cold milk.
This Essex, MA based cookie company also does a whole range of cookies including the spicy Cha-Chas which we fell in love with a while back. Those chocolate shortbread cookies are boosted with cayenne for a slow and sweet lingering burn.
The chewy Mighty Gingers offer a milder dose of heat, and the Salted-Rosemary Shortbreads feature a classic shortbread base scented with rosemary and finished with a dusting of sea salt. For those craving something off the beaten path, keep an eye out for lemon zest-kissed Polenta Pennies, perfectly round polenta-based cookies with sweet raisins.
