I don’t find myself in Hell’s Kitchen that often, but, I will certainly be returning to Schmackary’s.
Once upon a time, you could only get these big-boy (or girl) cookies online, but, luckily there’s now a cute little cafe where you can pop in for a treat.
They have staple flavors and a rotating selection of seasonal choices.
I went for the Red Velvet, deep red cocoa, white and semi-sweet chocolate chunks and a walnut buttercream frosting. This is an amazing cookie. It has the perfect slightly crunchy edges, and a soft and chewy inside, with a buttery quality that melts in your mouth. The flavor is rich and all components compliment each other wonderfully.
But who can stop at just one cookie when they also have something called The Kitchen Sink Cookie Bar? It’s a thick cookie concoction made of butterscotch chips, white and semi-sweet chocolate, sweetened coconut graham cracker, Oreo pieces and cornflakes. Holy. Hell. This was basically like a crack bar. The graham cracker “cookie” base is so delightfully buttery, and going through the contrasting layers of chocolate chunks and the coconut and cornflakes to switch up the texture and cut the sweetness a bit is just brilliant.

The Long and Short: Would I go back? Do humans breath air?
Would I recommend it? Go. Now.
