Eaten The Cookies-And-Cream Cookie And Milk From Anthony's Cookies

“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.”
   --Barbara Jones

Few foods rival milk and cookies as far as comfort foods go.  I love it.  You love it.  Your mom loves it.  Santa loves it. 

Today, I had jury duty, and during a long day of the jury selection process, I got picked to be on the jury.  Cookies and milk sounded really good after that. 
Anthony’s Cookies is a small cookie shop in the Mission (Valencia and 25th Avenue).  The cookies-and-cream cookie and milk is #65 on the 7x7 Big Eat List, so I decided to give them a try.

Anthony’s has several types of cookies available each day.  Certain cookie flavors are rotated on a daily basis.  The cookies-and-cream cookies are available everyday.

I picked up a dozen assorted cookies and some milk and brought them home.

I ended up getting cookies-and-cream, peanut butter, cranberry oatmeal, chocolate chip, double chocolate chip, cinnamon spice, walnut chip, and toffee chip.  It smelled delicious.

I also picked up a quart of Strauss organic milk. 

The cookies-and-cream cookie was unique.  It had chocolate Oreo-type crumbles in it.

The cookie had a crisp to the outside, but it was also chewy.  The combination makes for a wonderful cookie that has a texture that matches its taste.  I really enjoyed this cookie.  As a kid, I used to love cookies and cream ice cream and the cookie definitely reminds me of that.  I guess you could say that they combined two things I consider comfort food.

The only downside I would say is that I expected the cookie to be bigger (they’re just normal-sized cookies), but I would recommend giving Anthony’s a try.  The price is a bit high, but reasonable ($11/dozen) and they make some pretty good cookies.
