S'mores Cookie at Tribeca Treats

S'mores Cookie at Tribeca Treats
Cinnamon-laced graham crackers and marshmallow cream go from backyard bonfire to big city in this sophisticated two-bite sandwich cookie, which is half-dipped in pure milk chocolate. 94 Reade St between Church St and West Broadway (212-571-0500, tribecatreats.com). Each $1.25, dozen $12.

Lemon Ginger Cookie at Grandaisy Bakery
Grandaisy redefines those brittle, store-bought snaps. Here, two saucer-size shortbread disks are dappled with crystallized ginger and bound together with a slick of zippy lemon curd. Locations throughout the city (grandaisybakery.com). $2.

Kitchen Sink Cookie at Amy's Bread
This homey, vanilla-laced treat is a bit like granola in cookie form, chock-full of nutty oatmeal, flaky coconut, pecans and chocolate. 672 Ninth Ave between 46th and 47th Sts (212-977-2670, amysbread.com). $2.50.

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookie at Desserts by Michael Allen
Quite possibly the city's first five-napkin cookie, the airy, macaron-like cocoa-flavored exterior shatters at first bite to reveal a sticky, gooey dark-chocolate center. 80 Washington Ave between Park and Flushing Aves, Clinton Hill, Brooklyn (718-230-3360, michaelallendesserts.com). $2.

Chocolate-chip cookie at Jacques Torres Chocolate
The chocolate-to-dough ratio of this cookie seems to defy the laws of science. How does the rich, tender batter hold such giant plates—not chips, plates—of chocolate together? The world may never know. Locations throughout the city (jacquestorres.com). $3.

Blueberry & Cream Cookie at Momofuku Milk Bar East Village
Reminiscent of a blueberry muffin top, this madcap creation from Christina Tosi gets its crunchy texture from "milk crumbs," made with milk powder and white chocolate. 251 E 13th St at Second Ave (212-254-3500, cakes@milkbarstore.com, momofuku.com/milk-bar). $1.85.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookie at Levain Bakery
Sometimes bigger really is better: This cookie is the size of a scone. It has a doughy, underbaked center and loads of salty peanut-butter chips. 167 W 74th St between Amsterdam and Columbus Aves (212-874-6080, levainbakery.com). $4.

Miso-Almond Cookie at Takahachi Bakery
The miso is like a salty afterthought in this otherwise classic cookie: slightly thick, moist, chewy and packed with a generous helping of crunchy, toasted almonds. 25 Murray St at Church St (212-791-5550). $1.75.

Grasshopper Bar Cookie at Cookie Road
Girl Scout Thin Mints, meet your match. This cookie's dense, fudgy base is layered with white-chocolate peppermint and dark-chocolate ganache. 94 Franklin St between at Oak St, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (718-383-8094, cookieroad.com). $3.

Oatmeal Cherry Cookie at Astor Bake Shop
This toasty treat is the oatmeal-cookie gold standard: Not too crispy and not too soft, it has a hint of warming spice and is studded with plump, sweet dried cherries. 12-23 Astoria Blvd at 14th St, Astoria, Queens (718-606-8439, astor-bakeshop.com). $1.75.

Mario's Special at Madonia Brothers Bakery
This meringue cookie is anything but "lite." At once crunchy and chewy, it's packed with chocolate chips, showered with coconut and loaded with walnut halves. 2348 Arthur Ave between Crescent Ave and E 186th St, Bronx (718-295-5573). $12/lb.
