I'm always on the lookout for special treats to give as gifts for when I don't have time (or the ability) to make them as good myself! So I stopped into Milk Jar Cookies in L.A. recently for a dose of homemade cookie goodness.

Some of my favorite cookies included the Banana Split, Rocky Road, and Chocolate Pecan Caramel. They're the soft and chewy kind of cookie that make you feel like you just came home from school, and your mom surprised you with a special treat!

One of my favorite things about the shop is the story behind it. The owners left their long-time corporate jobs to pursue their dream of opening a cookie shop. Maybe it's because I love entrepreneurial stories or just that it makes me happy when people have a chance to do what they really love. Either way, there is so much joy baked into each and every pillow-soft cookie you'll find here…

  1. I pass this place almost everyday but so far haven’t stopped in! Which is weird because it’s walking distance from my husband’s office. I’m a slacker. I will most definitely have to try it! I love their window display~

  2. Oh my gosh, I have to visit this store! I LOVE cookies and not to mention, this place looks super cute and the cookies look super delicious.

  3. Those cookies look like heaven! I love hearing about stories like that as well… it’s my boyfriend and mine’s dream to open a restaurant/micro brewery where he can make his home-brew beers to sell on tap, and I can cook and make healthy clean meals for people to enjoy. Maybe someday… 🙂

  4. I also finally got a chance to stop in!! My boyfriend and I had the Banana Split and White Chocolate Macadamia. They were both great! The Banana Split was still warm and super gooey in the middle!

  5. It’s so dangerous that this store is down the street from me! Love the photos you shared, it shows how cute the store is. That banana split one was such a surprise too, it’s delicious!
