Located in Dumbo, One Girl Cookies is the kind of place that you are looking forward to visit, expecting, based on its name, to get giant cookies that would make you be unreasonable and defy your doctor for a minute or two. But no, no big cookies, rather tea treats smaller than the size of a dollar coin if you discard cupcakes, whoopie pies (the red velvet one is delicious) and the linzer torte that is not to be confused with the linzer cookies with its crumbly cookie and confectioner sugar: no, the linzer torte is less usual and definitely the kind of tart you should get if you love marzipan, although this one was spiced. Still, this is very good, having a bit of raspberry in between and being not too sweet. The small tea cookies are interesting though as they allow you to get a bite of everything. We tried:
Juliette, made with chocolate, hazelnut and cinnamon, pretty nice although there was a bit too much cinnamon that overpowered the whole thing.
Mary, a chocolate chip cookie. Ok.
Lucia, a chocolate and caramel shortbread layer bar that was my favorite. Like a Twix bar in a way.
Needless to say that you can get tea and coffee with your cookies. So overall it was good, but did not live up to my expectations. If you are in Dumbo, it is worth trying but I would not make the trip just for this place.
