Ben's Cookies

Ben's Cookies are not British or American cookies - they're simply amazing cookies.  I first discovered Ben's as a visiting student at St. Catherine's College, Oxford and loved how similar they were to Chef Jeff's cookies at MHC's Blanchard Student Center.  Gooey, ever-so-slightly-raw in the middle and sold by weight (yes, by weight), Ben's Cookies are perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up (or in the case of Adeline, a form of breakfast before yoga).  If you buy a tin of 5, you get one thrown in for free, which makes them the perfect gift for a host or hostess at a dinner party.  Best of all, their logo was designed by none other than Quentin Blake - everyone's favorite children's illustrator.  My favorite is the standard milk chocolate chip, but they also have other wonderfully creative flavors, such as ginger and dark chocolate or white chocolate and cranberry.
