The Cookie Fix, Homewood, Alabama

Owner Amy Jason of the Cookie Fix has thought of everything the cookie addict might need —freshly baked cookies, frozen dough (15 to a pack) and even iron skillets with tips for preparing cookie pies for a crowd (The key is under-baking the dough.). Cookie flavors rotate daily, with standbys always on the menu. Signature creations include peppermint chocolate chunk and the Billionaire cookie, which Jason describes as, “rich and loaded” with chocolate chips, caramel bits, peanut butter chips, marshmallows and a sprinkling of sea salt.

Hello Robin, Seattle

With 17 cookie varieties made fresh daily, Hello Robin has no shortage of options, including classic chocolate chip, flourless Mexican chocolate (both dairy- and gluten-free), super-soft molasses and birthday cake made with all-natural, local sprinkles to evoke cake frosting. Perhaps the most-buzzed-about is the Mackles'more, a graham cracker cookie topped with marshmallow, chocolate chip cookie dough and meltaway dark chocolate chunks. Cookies are baked in a convection oven at 375 degrees for five minutes, then rotated and baked for an additional five minutes. While those bake, guests can watch all the action in the open kitchen.
