Batter Bakery's Cookie/Candy Hybrid Is Distracting

This week, Cook E. Monster was all set to gush about the sand angel cookie at the Batter Bakery, which operates a California Street kiosk in the Financial District and shares a Polk street cafe with healthy prepared food purveyor Square Meals. This soft cookie has a recipe so special, lore has it that owner Jen Musty keeps it strictly to herself. So we're not sure if it's correct to say that it might contain hints of molasses, but we felt it important enough to drive across town to verify that they are still awesome.

So, yeah, check out the sand angel, which is surprisingly not our top cookie this week. That honor belongs to another beauty that beckoned to us only two steps in the door of the Polk shop.

Peanut butter blossoms don't appear to be sold separately, so you're gonna have to commit to a half dozen (for $6.50). It's not going to be a disappointment unless you have a serious problem with delicious peanut butter cups being stuck in equally delicious chunky peanut-laden peanut butter cookies, which have a similar consistency to the sand angels.

It takes a mighty flavor to distract the Monster from one of the city's most heavenly cookies, but these have done it.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
