Possibly the best cookies in Paris.

Due to building works at Les Halles, Laura Todd’s little cookie shop has moved to just outside Mabillon metro station, not far from the Saint-Germain Apple store. Appropriately, Todd’s American-style cookies are now being sold from a former Ben & Jerry’s stall.

Gooey, melt-in-the-mouth cookies which leave just the right amount of buttery grease on your fingers, these might just be the best in the capital. Try the classics, made with no less than 50 per cent organic ingredients – think milk chocolate, Crousty peanuts, dark chocolate and coconut or the 1933 with raisins, oats, cinnamon and nuts. There’s also more unique combinations like the Exquis (semi-dried organic cherries and match green tea extract) or Fairtrade Malongo coffee flavour.

Cookies are sold by weight, between €2.40 and €2.60 each) but if you’re craving a baking session, they publish recipes on their site too. You can also feast on brownies, muffins and drinks. There’s a little table in the shop too, because frankly, it would be a shame to wolf down these badboys on the move.
