It takes a lot of work to find the perfect cookie recipe, but The Cookie Society has put in the work to create a load of them. Luckily, the Black-owned gourmet bake shop — located in Frisco, Texas — delivers it cookies nationwide so you can try them for yourself.
The Cookie Society uses real butter and high quality ingredients to give its cookies a rich flavor, crispy outer and soft, chewy center. Plus, these cookies are big!
According to the bake shop’s website, it all started with the a classic chocolate chip cookie. Marissa and Jeff Allen, wife and husband co-owners of The Cookie Society, started baking after a trip to New York City led them to a famous bakery with a famous cookie. When they got home, Marissa worked on her own “ultimate cookie” recipe for months. She wanted one that had “crispy edges” and a “chewy and tender center.”
After a while, she had developed over 70 recipes and started giving her cookies to her husband’s teammates. (Jeff is a retired NFL player who played for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans.) Soon, the team started placing orders, and Marissa and Jeff turned the passion into a business.
If you want to try The Cookie Society, the bake shop has a couple options for shipping: a Classic Sampler, The Dozen and a pack of the month’s favorite flavors.
The Classic Sampler includes six of its most popular cookie flavors, including the famous chocolate chip and banana pudding cookies, as well as a cookies-and-cream, oatmeal raisin, salted caramel and sugar cookie. You’ll get one of each flavor.
Shop: Classic Sampler, $20
The Dozen includes all of The Cookie Society’s flavors: two chocolate chip cookies and two cookies-and-cream cookies, plus one salted caramel, one coffee cake, one oatmeal raisin, one sugar, one banana pudding, one peanut butter, one cookie butter and an M&M cookie.
Shop: The Dozen, $38
The cookie flavors may vary based on the month or season. However, all of The Cookie Society’s cookies weigh 4 ounces each, which is nearly twice the size of the average cookie.
As the website reads, “Everything’s bigger in Texas — and our cookies are no exception.”
