Picture the some of the most perfect cookies you've ever tasted, rich with roasted nuts, the finest cocoa, and homemade jams and truffle fillings. Now picture those in your mouth, melting and crumbling against your tongue. Now go buy those amazing cookies from Elsylee Galetes Artesánals, ($8-$11 per dozen) and you will have yourself a bona fide gourmet cookie party. Each recipe is named after a city, and they're all universally delicious. We couldn't stop moaning over the Sevilla, a crumbly-soft almond snowball dusted with handmade Madagascar bourbon whole vanilla bean sugar, and the Los Angeles, a chewy triple chocolate chunk espresso cookie infused with Valrhona cocoa, milk & dark chips, pecans, and walnuts. They'd make great holiday or entertaining gifts.
