10 Best Cookies in Los Angeles
|Tavern Peanut Butter Cookie|
There are a lot of cookies to choose from at Tavern. They thoughtfully offer a soft and a crispy chocolate chip, and the oatmeal raisin is perfection. Our favorite has to be the golden-hued peanut butter, which is sandy and buttery and three bites of joy. Thank goodness they're opening a second location in West Hollywood.11648 San Vicente Boulevard, Los Angeles; (310) 806-6464.
Rachael Narins Rockenwagner Lebkuchen
Lebkuchen are German spice cookies and one of the most classic European holiday cookies, dating back to the 12th century. At RĂ¶ckenwagner they're fragrant, large and pillowy. They're also only available until January, so get them while you can.311 Arizona Avenue, Santa Monica; (310) 394-4267.

The Durango cookie is a sophisticated, complex combination of darkened milk chocolate, roasted almonds, cocoa nibs and Durango hickory smoked salt, whatever that is. The large cookie is a medley of textures and flavors, and at $2 worth every penny.3360 West 1st Street, Los Angeles; (213) 739-8149.
