Our first bakery tasting endeavors got off to a rocky start. It was a little after 6 PM on a Tuesday, and the two bakeries we visited were closed. Luckily, Boulder is home to Boulder Baked, a dessert shop open until midnight every night. BB specializes in its baked-to-order cookies, cakes, grilled cheese, and other comfort foods. Additionally, they have vegan and gluten free bakery options available.
How the cookie crumbled
We went for the basics, getting a four-pack of fresh baked cookies. The 28 flavors on the menu were overwhelming in the best way possible, and with help from the employee (word choice?) we chose the chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal cinnamon chocolate chip, and white chocolate macadamia nut. All four were baked to gooey perfection. Hayley’s favorite was the oatmeal cinnamon chocolate chip because of its crispy outer edge and the combination of cinnamon and chocolaty goodness- like a snicker doodle with chocolate chips! Saraswathi’s favorite was the white chocolate macadamia nut- something light after all the sweetness ;)
Overall, Boulder Baked wins for their warm, fresh-baked cookies in tons of flavors. They also do delivery and pick-up, but we highly recommend going to the storefront to eat your cookies as close to the oven as possible.
