brooklyn bound: one girl cookies

One Girl Cookies.

Where do I even begin, I love this place so, so much???

Okay, I’ll start at the beginning.

Mike’s cousin lives around the corner and took us there a few years ago. It was literally love at first sight – and bite.

The bakery itself is beyond charming – cute and cool, stylish and warm, all at the same time. Owner Dawn Casale is a former accessories manager for Barney’s, and her eye for detail is evident in the color palette, graphics, packaging, display and overall design of the store. Being there is like hanging out with the coolest, most fashionable girl in school, who turns out to be super nice and friendly too.

Am I gushing?

Wait, I haven’t even gotten to the good stuff.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while more than 5 minutes, you know that I love to bake. And WE love  to eat. So we’ve had our (ahem) “share” of sweet treats. And I can honestly say that One Girl Cookies’ are some of the best cupcakes, whoopie pies and cookies (yes, we sampled them all….) I’ve ever had. The fanciest? No. The most exotic? No. Perfectly executed? A mouth-full-of-cake “yes”.

So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that a cookbook was in the works. I waited patiently and it finally arrived just a few weeks ago. Have you ever taken a cookbook to bed with you? And read it from cover to cover? No? Well I did – and all the recipes were there. The whoopie pies. The cupcakes. The cookies.

And did I mention that there’s a great love story? With a happy ending (of course). It’s in the book too.

I’m doubly excited to be sharing One Girl Cookies with you now because I am about to start a new recipe series and her whoopie pies will be the very first feature.

Here’s a peek:

While you’re waiting, here’s what to do:

1. Get the book.

2. Go to the bakery (she has a second location too – right in DUMBO! Get a treat to-go and visit this).

3. Thank me (with a mouth-full-of-whoopie-pie, ideally).

      Thanks Melanie – it’s sort of quirky but I’m excited about it! 🙂

    Beautiful pictures, Sheri. Love the cake with the multi-colored dots. I’ll add the shop to my growing list of must-visits when I come up this summer. Excited about your new recipe feature!

      Thank you! You’re coming to New York? Would love to get together if you have time – let me know! 🙂

    I’m not liable to be in New York anytime soon, or maybe even EVER, but if I were you’ve made me want to go here!

    • sheri silver on February 22, 2012 at 8:21 pm

      Well it goes without saying that if you DO come here I will be your personal tour guide! 🙂

    I just love the look of all those gorgeous cakes. The way they have iced the blue cupcake is so original. And that cake is incredible. I’ll look forward to seeing what you bake from this cookbook.

      Thank you – I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

    I’m coming to NY in March. Will have to check this place out. The only cookbook I’ve ever read like a book is Gwenth Paltrow’s. You’re making me hungry Sheri!

    • sheri silver on February 23, 2012 at 10:43 am

      Well that’s my goal of course! 🙂 Let me know if you go, and of course any other treasures you find on your trip here!

    That looks like a lovely place to visit. So many new bakeries have popped up since I left New York. I need to plan a little trip back very soon.

    The cake with the colorful dots is my favorite. I think I’m going to steal that idea for my daughter’s cake. We’re already deciding on it an her birthday isn’t until the end of July!

    (Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. It made my day!)

      Thanks so much for writing – I think that cake would be a perfect party-girl’s birthday cake! I’m so glad to have found your blog! 🙂

    I love my One Girl Cookies cookbook! It was an awesome gift. And everything pumpkin is awesome by me! Have you made the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies yet? So fluffy and amazing!

    • sheri silver on May 16, 2012 at 9:29 am

      It’s so good, right? I feel just the same about pumpkin – those whoopie pies!! Have not made the cookies yet – will definitely do so!:)
