An offshoot from Baylor University called Bittersweet Waco recently opened in an obscure storefront on Austin Avenue in the picturesque college town of Waco, Texas.
They serve cookies for the serious addict, dessert gone rampant, where a giant scoop of cookie dough is just the beginning. These are bulky, artistic nods to the indecisive child at a buffet. Why choose between a S’more or a cookie when one can bake huge chunks of marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate into a scoop of chocolate chip cookie?
The Cookies and Cream option has chocolate, Oreos and cream bark stuffed together and tumbling out the edges of the cookie dough base. Birthday Cake is a recreation of elementary slumber parties with jumbled marshmallows, slabs of icing, sprinkles and chunks of dough and offers a sugar overload for the truly daring. Our favorite so far though? The S'more cookie- a triple chip chocolate chip cookie topped with a Hershey's milk chocolate bar, stuffed with marshmallow cream and crumbled graham cracker.
The owner, Hannah Austin, began baking in her dorm kitchens before finding a local ice cream shop, Heritage Creamery, willing to display her goodies and eventually opened her own shop. The walls of the tiny area are a living wish list, where customers scribble their own dreams while they wait to order. We can't wait to get back to Waco to try the next flavor on our bucket list- the Cookie Dough Stuffed Brownie!
