Ah, the holidays are here! Corelyn and I decked out our apartment with decor and a gorgeous tree the day after Thanksgiving – it’s so festive! Baking Christmas cookies is one of my absolute holiday traditions, so it only seemed fitting that I pay a visit to one of Los Angeles’ renowned bakeries this month to get into the spirit of the season.
Milk Jar Cookies is located mid city on Wilshire Blvd. I was greeted outside with a giant Geronimo Balloon and Confetti System tassel, which immediately told me this place is awesome. Bonus points for being right next door to Whimsic Alley, the Harry Potter gift shop!
They have so many flavors to choose from!
I appreciated the attention to sweet details at Milk Jar, including these adorable holiday straws.
They serve Handsome Coffee, one of LA’s best roasters!
I ordered half a dozen cookies and was so impressed by Milk Jar’s branding – every cookie was individually packaged and labeled with the flavor, and they included an adorable note warning that you’ll probably never look at cookies the same way again. They were right.
I carefully chose the seasonal peppermint candy cane (pictured first in this entry), the chocolate pecan caramel, cinnamon sugar, seasonal oatmeal cranberry white chocolate, white chocolate macadamia, and the mint chocolate. They were all amazing – so perfectly doughy and soft, but my favorite was the mint chocolate!
Wouldn’t these be a fancy treat for Santa? What’s your favorite Christmas cookie?
