10 Best Cookies in Los Angeles
Platine, for those of you wondering, is the French word for platinum. In this case, it's also a teeny-tiny storefront that holds within the cookie creations of pastry chef Jaime Cantor. The cookies certainly are precious, small and easy to desire. We flipped for the Snacky cookie -- which is a combo of potato chips, pretzels, dark chocolate and butterscotch chips. The light and lemony sugar cookie, the lemon Peiter, is light and tart and also worth seeking out. 10850 Washington Boulevard, Culver City; (310) 559-9933.
Rachael Narins Chocolate chip cookie at Huckleberry
You knew Zoe Nathan's bakery was going to be on this list.

The effect gives you the feeling that you're eating really buttery bread with rich, smooth chocolate. Not sweet, this is an adult cookie that we know kids love too.1014 Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica; (310) 451-2311.
