Next stop on my New York City Travel Guide: Sweet treats!
I love finding companies that despite how big or successful they get they still are down-to-earth and have a big heart. It creates a special sense of pride and love that really shows through the products they produce. Eleni’s New York cookies are a great example of that! This cookie business is nut-free, handmade, hand-iced, Kosher certified and gives back in huge ways! We came across this yummy cookie shop at the Chelsea Market while searching for the right subway entrance from the High Line.
“No conveyer belts, no automated decorating, no mass production. It’s all done the old fashioned way, one cookie at a time.”
Eleni’s New York cookies are just as beautiful as they are tasty. I cannot believe each one is handmade and hand-iced. I have watched those hyper-speed videos of people decorating beautiful cookies and props to them! I can’t imagine having the skill or patience to do what they do! It really is extraordinary. Eleni’s cookies are so unique because they have every theme, every type of cookie that you didn’t know you needed including super cute emoji cookies and popular shorthand phrases like LOL and OMG. I adored the Color Your Own Cookie collections! How creative is that? There are several sets to choose from like a Fashionista collection with lipstick and dresses as well as a Pet Shop cookie set! I can just see my nephew go bananas over the fact that he got to color on his cookie and eat it! It’s the little things in life, right? My favorite set was the Game Night collection complete with hangman, dots and tic tac toe. I think that would be such a cute date night snack! I can’t wait to order some of these cookies for my next event!
