Tracktown Cookie at Red Wagon Creamery 0

Red Wagon Creamery
55 West Broadway – Eugene, OR
$1.75

It has been a long time since I ate a cookie good enough to talk about.

But I finally did. Last week. In my hometown. Not at a bakery, even. But at an ice cream joint called Red Wagon Creamery. They make very good ice cream*, but whoever they’ve got in charge of the cookies is no dummy, either.

Oatmeal Pecan at little t baker 0

little t baker
2600 SE Division – Portland
$1.75

Seems like Little T likes to switch up their oatmeal cookie from time to time. I have no complaints with this; there are so many ways to enjoy an oatmeal cookie. Why settle on just one?

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip at Laughing Planet 0

Laughing Planet Café
7 locations in Portland (and a couple in Eugene and Corvallis)
$2

I’m sorry to say that I’ve overlooked this cookie for a long time. Truthfully, the only reason I ever even go to Laughing Planet is to grab the Hempseed Carob Hazelnut, probably the most unlikely cookie on my list of favorites. I’ve told you about this one. I’ve mentioned that there is no logical reason for me to love this cookie; it has hemp, it has carob,it has hazelnuts (not my favorite nut). Oh yeah, and it’s a little bit over-baked. I can’t explain or justify its credibility, all I know is that it is oddly compelling.

Oatmeal Raisin Apricot at Craftsman & Wolves 0

Craftsman & Wolves
746 Valencia St. – San Francisco
$2.75*

I ate this a few weeks ago – during a (way too) quick trip to S.F. at the end of last month.  And no, I don’t know what in the hell “Craftsman & Wolves” means.

Wait…I bet their website’s “about” page  will clue me in. Okay, yeah. It does (sorta). Something about hard work in the name of pursuing your craft. I don’t feel like reiterating it so just check it out yourself if you care.

ANZAC Biscuits and Cowboy Cookies at Pacific Pie Co. 0

Pacific Pie Co.
1520 SE 7th Ave – Portland
.75¢ and $1.50

Hi cookie eaters. This is a two-fer post. I’ve never had two different cookies share the limelight of a single post, but I’m doing it now because these are, in fact, very nearly the same cookie. The only thing separating the ANZAC biscuit from the cowboy cookie sitting in a neighboring jar at Pacific Pie Company is the addition of chocolate chips.

First things first. You’re either hip to the ANZAC biscuit or…you are not. If you are not, here’s the main thing to know. Read more »

Oatmeal Raisin at Spielman Coffee Roasters 0

Spielman Coffee Roasters
2128 SE Division St – Portland
$1.25

Spielman Coffee Roaster’s main gig, unsurprisingly, is coffee beans. But in the past year or so since they opened, they’ve also earned a reputation for baking some of the best bagels in town (Montreal style) -  with lines regularly spilling out of their tiny Division Street shop. And even though I’m not a bagel chaser in general, it’s nice to know it is possible to get our hands on something more chewy, earthy, delicious and

I’ve been seeing cookies from Bluebird Bakers in stores like New Seasons and Zupans for the past year or two- and was lucky enough to happen upon a free sample or two (or four) once or twice.

Oatmeal Chocolate with Cranberries (and rye flour) at Tabor Bread 0

Tabor Bread
5051 SE Hawthorne Blvd – Portland
$1.75

Tabor Bread mills their own flours and bakes their bread and pastries in a wood fired oven – apparently the first retail bakery in Portland to do so.  I was surprised to read this. I mean, this is Portland – D.I.Y. headquarters of America! But it says so on their website, and who am I to second guess the internet?
