Take a Blueprint to your cookie-eating experience

in Entertainment by

With a weekly-updating menu of four unique, giant cookies baked fresh in store, Blueprint Cookies aims to be the perfect place to satisfy a sweet tooth. Two cookies, chocolate chip and sprinkle, remain permanent fixtures on its menu, while the others update each week. A monthly cookie, meanwhile, stays available for the entire month, with a vegan option as well.

The concept of giant, limited-edition cookies isn’t unique to Blueprint; cookie company Crumbl follows a similar business model. However, whereas Crumbl spans the country, Blueprint is native to our home state. When I heard a location had opened a mere mile away from my house, I knew I had to check it out.

Blueprint—or, at least, the location I visited—sells each cookie individually, with each costing around five dollars. The only exception was the 10 dollar Doughnookie, offered for one day only (launch day of the Cooper City location, Dec. 17), that stuffed an entire chocolate chip cookie into a vanilla glazed donut.

The first word that came to mind when I saw these cookies was “indulgent,” and indeed, these cookies were stuffed to the brim with all sorts of treats that are bound to get mouths watering. The Red Velvet Cheesecake cookie had a cheesecake filling and graham cracker crumbs sprinkled on a whipped cream topper, and the Santa’s Milk cookie was lathered in glaze and topped with two other types of cookies. The king of indulgence, however, was the Doughnookie, whose sprinkles, glaze, chocolate filling and mini chocolate chip cookie topper combined to create a texture more cake-y than cookie.

If sweetness is not your thing, these cookies are definitely not for you. Even if it is your thing, the cookies are basically impossible to finish in a single sitting (I couldn’t even finish half of the Doughnookie). Still, as a once-in-a-while treat to satisfy a sweet tooth, Blueprint cookies are the way to go; chances are, you’ll even have enough for the next few days.
