A WELL-MADE chocolate chip cookie is my Achilles' heel. I don't ever *not* want one. Right now? Sure! Mid-intercourse? Why not! After 2 am on a Saturday? FUCK YES.
That's what makes the idea for Coop's Cookies downright genius: It's a late-night small-batch cookie delivery that offers a rotating selection of flavors, including classic chocolate chip, ginger molasses, pretzel milk chocolate chunk (yes, please!), and oatmeal raisin (who likes this cookie?!). Open Thursday through Sunday from 7 pm to 3 am, this is now how all future munchies problems will be solved.
Owner Jessica Cooper dropped her creations at my door a few Sundays ago, and these babies are great. They're HUGE, the right level of chewy and fluffy, and my favorite so far, the triple chocolate, had just a hint of salt to combat the high sugar levels. Cookies run from $3.25 to $3.75 and there's a wide delivery range (Woodstock and Powell to Ainsworth, some downtown/Northwest spots, and even east to 82nd) with fees ranging from $1-3.
Don't forget the milk. Coop's has it from Sunshine Dairy, along with all the Cellar Door coffee and soda you care to guzzle. Need a lighter to keep the party going? They've got those for $2, and there's a built-in bottle opener. Don't say this lady doesn't know her audience.
