By Scott Lynch

Cookies are the most portable of all the sweet treats—in fact, I typically carry around a few of NYC’s best in my bag for on-the-go snacking and sharing. Try it!

Anyway, my last Best Cookie list was more than two years ago, and while I included a few true all-stars from that report at the end of this one, the focus here is on new places, new bakers, new opportunities to marvel at these magical creations that somehow capture a galaxy of flavors and textures in a tiny space.

Locations in DUMBO, Soho, UWS, Grand Central, Rock Center, and Midtown East (mrchocolate.com)
