Finding a Cookie Obsession at Bakeshop in Arlington

The Brookie takes center stage at BakeShop

There are cupcakes galore at Bakeshop.  I just ate a surprisingly good “Nerds” cupcake (Nerds are those little tangy candies); and the red velvet with cream cheese frosting is my favorite.  But what’s elusive is the Friday night Brookie cookie.  A Brookie is a brownie that’s a cookie…the chocolatey inside is meltingly soft, the outside a paper thin crust.  

On our way home from dinner at nearby Green Pig Bistro or Screwtop wine bar, J and I have made a habit of stopping by Bakeshop for a Brookie.  And lately, the day’s stock hasn’t lasted until closing time on a Friday.  So when I dropped by on a Saturday afternoon, I had to snag two – because they were there. Which explains why, after work, on February 14, I found myself in a cramped Valentine’s Day baked goods line, backed up against the front door, all for just one Brookie cookie to gift for J.
