                                                 chocolate chip cookie from Flour & Co.

It's no secret I'm drawn to bakeries, some more than others. A lot to times it just comes down to convenience. As in, they are close to regular daily routes I take to work or wherever. Some off days though, when I'm out a wandering, I come back across a place I've tried in the past and kind of liked. One of these is Flour & Co. in Nob Hill. I was jonesing for a small bite and a chocolate chip cookie seemed like just the thing. They label it a chocolate chunk cookie and it will run you $2.50. It's decent size and is more thick than wide. This isn't a bad thing. And in this instance it made this cookie about as close as you can get to eating cookie dough. It is a very soft cookie that seems to be more lightly cooked with minimal browning on the outside, but very soft and doughy inside. It really does give the texture of like a slightly warmed cookie dough. Add in the plentiful bits of chocolate and it also comes close to soft cookie brownie territory. Everyone has their cookie likes and dislikes so a dense mushy version like this may not be for some folks. I liked it as it satisfied the craving I was having in the moment. I'm guessing part of the softness here comes from their use of almond flour on the mix. It keeps it from baking too hard and adds a subtle nutty flavor that nice without being over powering. The chocolate still shines through here. If you are fan of soft and gooey or you like cookie dough but aren't in the mood to have it raw, then this cookie is a good middle ground and worth trying.
