All The Cookie News That’s Fit to Print: Creme de la Cookie Opens in Snider Plaza in Dallas

My Red-Headed Woodpecker prefers nuts to cookies.

First comes news that the FDA is suggesting that consumers should not eat refrigerated raw cookie dough or bake the Nestle Toll House products because there could be a risk of spreading E.coli through handling or on food-preparation surfaces. There haven’t been any deaths reported, but the government has received 66 reports of illness in 28 states. (Is there a slight chance that these folks ate the whole package?) This morning, Nestle issued a voluntary recall. Hmm.

However, there is some good cookie news. Yesterday,  a little bird flew into the Dan Koller’s office upstairs and sang to Overheard: Crème de la Cookie is opening in Snider Plaza. It didn’t take long for super sleuthly songbird TG  to tweet about the sweet shop. I’ll bet Leslie “Catch a Falling Star” Brenner is already typing the back story of this “delectable journey for your taste buds.” (I wonder if J.T. Lemley  will deliver tomatoes to you while you wait.) Anywhoo, they open today in the space formerly known as Doughmonkey.

  1. I tasted the cupcakes they sent over yesterday—red velvet, my favorite—and the frosting was divine: sweet (but not too sweet) cream cheese frosting, with a light, smooth texture. The cake itself was nice, but the frosting was delicious!

  2. Somebody clue me in. If Doughmonkey couldn’t make it, why would a store with similar offerings succeed?

    I was a regular at Doughmonkey, their cookies were fantastic and not too much money.

  3. Doughmonkey? Get over it. I tried Creme de la Cookie twice this week – man, their cookies are fantastic! Haven’t tried a cupcake yet – I’m going back for another oatmeal tomorrow. Best I’ve ever had.
