The Good Stuff Cookie Co. specializes in stuffed cookies. The small shop has some fun decor and shares a space with apparel boutique 5 & A Dime.
Upon entering, you won’t see any cookies on display. The cookies are kept in the fridge because of the perishable fillings. Since it was our first time here, the person managing the store was more than happy to give us a few sample bites to try out.
There were seven flavors on the day we visited (six listed plus a few left of the s’more flavor) and we ended up buying a half dozen cookies for $12. The cookies come with a mason jar, which if you bring back later for a refill, your half dozen will only cost you $10.
The cookies were quite a bit thinner than I expected and each of them had a similar soft and very moist texture. Some fillings seemed better for stuffing than others. For example, the snickerdoodle was stuffed with cheesecake filling and once cut open, it had a great cookie to filling ratio. The S’more ones, I think some of the marshmallow filling disappeared during baking into the cookie because it was hard to distinguish.
Of the three flavors we got, my favorite was the snickerdoodle, which tasted like a cinnamon cheesecake cookie. The cookies are very rich and I found myself needing a big glass of milk.
Overall, we had a fun time trying the cookies here. As a personal preference, I like my cookies to be a little firmer and thicker, but if you love soft, moist cookies, then these are definitely worth a try.
