Sea salt on anything is pretty awesome, but especially on a chocolate chunk cookie. Sweet Corner Bake Shop in the West Village is this little corner bakery that you could easily walk by (in fact, we have like 10 times) before stopping in. It was an icy cold day on the streets of New York. Wrapped from head to toe in a sleeping bag coat (don’t judge, their ugly but warm) and my entire face wrapped in a five dollar pashamina, I happened to read a chalkboard sign that said “Come in for a sea salt, chocolate chip cookie” at that moment the wind whipped across the only exposed part of my body (my eyes) and I decided to take refuge in this bakery. I walked up to the counter and asked for the chocolate chip, sea salt cookie.
There was only one cookie left on the plate and so I felt like it was fate to buy that lonely cookie. They asked if I needed a bag and I said no, because I couldn’t wait to scarf that puppy down. I went back out to brave the cold and took a bite of that cookie. It was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, how a cookie should be. The chocolate was the perfect amount of sweetness and the coarse sea salt looked like snow atop this awesome cookie. It added that extra salty, craveable goodness. I tried to save half of that cookie, but I couldn’t stop eating it. It was that addicting.
If you are in the West Village, please give Sweet Corner’s chocolate chip, sea salt cookie a try. Don’t get stuck only visiting Magnolia, try something new. You will love it.
