RE: Cookies & Milk Bakery
And at Manhattan prices...eighteen dollars for a "baker's dozen" of cookies, and almost four dollars for a brownie bar?
I give them credit...they will probably do bang up business. Places like the Magnolia Bakery in the Village proved that there are many, many Manhattanites with little interest in cooking, yet lots of interest in eating sugary goodies, and they will part with a good sum of money to get these.
I never understood this when I lived in Manhattan...you could buy the allegedly "high quality imported" ingredients over at your local Whole Foods, Zabar's, Jefferson Market, Balducci's, etc., and make these basic baked goods in your own apartment in very little time with very little effort. But, given the warp speed at which many young professionals live in Manhattan, I guess even spending a little bit of time to make home baked treats isn't worth it.
