Levain, cookie of angels

Adapted from an original photo by angela n.

I'm pretty sure every time someone bites into a Levain Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie, an angel gets its wings. It is THAT good! I've never seen a cookie so thick and luscious. Fresh out of the oven, it is warm and oozing with chocolate heavenly goodness. If I ever dropped a Levain cookie on the ground, I would definitely pick it up and eat it, five second rule or not. I'd chase after the crumbs too!

I'm not going to name names but I once brought my friend a Levain cookie to try, and when asked if she wanted to share it with her 2 year old child, she got this crazy look in her eyes and refused. She also shot me a look of death when I suggested she share the cookie with me (the original plan was for us to split one cookie). I ended up giving her most of the cookie, but I definitely learned a lesson that day: Do not try to share this cookie with anyone!

Although I only have room in my heart for the Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie, Levain does offer other flavors as well: Dark Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip. And bread!

Visit Levain Bakery at your own risk... You might never be able to enjoy another chocolate chip cookie again!
