The cookie: it’s almost as though this casual, fuss-free dessert is cast with a seduction spell. It has that power to lure anyone in to take a bite of its soft, sugary body.
And, of course, a home-made batch of cookies can easily be done. There are a bunch of cookie recipes out there that fit all types of taste and preference. But when time is not on your side and the cookie hunger keeps kicking in, buying these sweet little treats from the shops is also a treat in itself, since it frees you from everything (time and energy) but deliciousness.

Evie’s Cookies is wildly popular – if not for the cookies then for its iconic white-blue vintage packaging. If you love an extremely soft-centred, chunky cookie, then this should be your go-to brand. We are obsessed with the sweet-savoury mashup of the ‘BAE-con,’ a caramel-y cookie studded thoroughly with candied bacon. The ‘Oh Chip’ chocolate cookie also packs up some serious cocoa effects thanks to the gooey chocolate lava stuffed inside.

Stop by TIKKY BAKER’s IG for their drool-inducing brownie feeds which they are famed for, but order a box of their soft cookies on your way off the page. The Valrhona chocolate-packed cookies can be topped with your favourite Valrhona flavoured chocolate: strawberry, caramel, and milk chocolate.

Calling out all cookie monsters: The Rolling Pinn by Pinnjan will take you to cloud nine with their repertoire of soul-stirring, palate-pleasing cookies. We love the Baby OG Valrhona milk chocolate cookie touched with crushed toasted hazelnuts, and the Hella Nutella, which is a macadamia cookie smeared generously with a dollop of creamy hazelnut spread. What takes these treats to a whole ‘nother level though is the added flakey sea salt, which provides a perfect crunch as well as a salty contrast to what would otherwise be a jaw-aching sweetness.

For a slightly more stellar take on the humble cookie, Tommy N Cookies should be your move. The Rum Raisins & Cashew is definitely the way to go if you’re not a raisin hater (yes, we see you) as well as the Oatmeal Cranberries Almond & White Chocolate. More on a sweeter side, the Chocolate Chip & Caramel or the Double Chocolate Chip & Roasted Hazelnuts should be your go-to.

It seems like Bangkok can’t get enough of chewy cookies. Hence, one more baked shop for you for the gooey-middle, crispy-edged treat of your dreams. Ayy Dough churns out a delicious selection of cookies: Monster creamEROcheese with crushed Oreo and cream cheese; Pinkyloop Dough with Froot Loops cereal, melted marshmallows, and 70% dark chocolate; and Hazella Dough stuffed with Nutella and a boatload of chopped hazelnuts.

David’s Homemade Soft Cookies by Pastry Chef David Okamoto never disappoint when it comes to soft cookies. What makes them so special, however, is not the softness solely but also the rainbow shades they come in. Opt for the Pancake Breakfast cookie laden with maple-caramelised bacon with milk chocolate chunks if you love the good ol’ soul-satisfying American breakfast. Other must-tries also include M&M Funfetti, Red Velvet White Chocolate, Marshmallow S’Mores, Matcha Latte, Cookie Monster, Red Velvet Nutella, and more.
