This cookie is an explosion of textures and flavors; not the NYC scary bomb kind of explosion, but rather, a wondrous explosion of complementary flavors (remember how Ratatouille – the cooking rat – escaped into an explosive abyss of deliciousness when he combined tasty ingredients? Nevermind.)
THIS COOKIE IS AMAZING. It is technically a shortbread (aka. buttery heaven) but unlike typical shortbreads, it is very chewy. Each bite of this chewy buttery treat is also interrupted by the crunchiness of tiny pieces of almond. The center is filled with a sweet raspberry jam that has become divinely gooey from the baking process. The Jane Street Jam is really an interpretation of the classic Pepperidge Farm Verona cookie. I always love a good remix.
Ninth Street Espresso actually doesn’t make these cookies on site. They get their cookies from Downtown Baking Co. Check out more of Downtown Baking Co.’s delicious cookies here. The oatmeal chocolate chip one looks amazing…
