I’ve been wanting to start a new series here on the blog where I share my family’s favorite places in Los Angeles. I’ve been using #OLDsfaveplacesinLA on instagram to share glimpses of our favorite spots, but today I want to officially start with a tour of our favorite neighborhood spot: Milk Jar Cookies. It’s just the cutest place and has THE BEST cookies ever.
We’ve been going to Milk Jar Cookies since they opened in the spring of 2013. It started as a way to bribe Charlie to go to his swim class but Milk Jar has become a place where my family celebrates lots of other little victories, or brightens up a rough day. And since it is walking distance from our home, we visit once a week.
I have to honestly say, theirs are the best cookies I’ve ever had. They are big (the size of 3 cookies at most other bakeries). And they are soft and delicious — I don’t know how you can bake a cookie that big to be completely cooked through and still be soft. It’s cookie magic. Our favorite cookies are: chocolate chip (mine), chocolate peanut butter (my husband), and Charlie switches between those two, oatmeal raisin, and the “sprinkle cookie.” And at Christmas time the candy cane cookie is my absolute fave.
You can visit Milk Jar Cookies at 5466 Wilshire Boulevard, in the Miracle Mile. They are closed on Mondays. You’ll find us there most Friday afternoons.
