Temperatures are well below freezing here in NYC so I figured its the perfect time to scavenge the city for a little comfort in Oatmeal Cookie Heaven! As one of my favorite type of cookies, it was a hard decision to make. All were delicious, but I promised you guys a winner so here we go!
1. Salt of the Earth Bakery: The Wild Oat Cookie
Definitely worthy of any top list, but this is what oatmeal cookie dreams are made of! The perfect crunch and just a hint of salt to balance everything!
2. Bouchon Bakery: Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
One giant buttery, chewy, cinnamon and raisin goodness! A classic oatmeal raisin cookie at Bouchon, they've even included the recipe for it in the Bouchon Bakery cookbook
3. Levain Bakery: Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
You are definitely getting your money's worth ($4) for this huge mound of a 6-oz cookie, with perfectly plump raisins and rich oat dough.
4. Insomnia Cookies: Oatmeal Raisin
An affordable pick for a classic to hit your oatmeal raisin craving!
5. City Bakery: Oatmeal Raisin
Perfect timing to stop by City Bakery (It's their annual Hot Chocolate Festival this month read more here!) so grabbing an oatmeal cookie was a no brainer! They added a surprising sugar topping to add a bit of crunch and texture to the cookie!
