Half Baked Goodness

While Half Baked Goodness serves about half a dozen cookie varieties, chocolate chip cookies are their specialty. With the perfect balance of a slightly crispy exterior and a soft, chewy center, their baking process is carefully monitored to ensure that each cookie is baked to perfection every time. Half Baked Goodness also specializes in creating keto cookies that are not only delicious but also healthy for those following a low-carb lifestyle. 

Moose & Me Baking Company

At Moose & Me, owners Justin and Megan Elder make it a point to employ adults of all abilities. After they saw firsthand the joy that baking brought to their two daughters, who both have Down Syndrome, the two decided to open a bakery that provides opportunities for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In addition to traditional chocolate chip, Moose & Me serves up sugar, cookie butter, coffee chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and monster cookies.

Happy Belly Kitchen

Located inside Werk Force Brewery, Happy Belly Kitchen serves up scratch-made snacks, shareable-plates, sandwiches and sweets. While they only serve one cookie, it’s enough to keep customers flocking back for more. Their big salted chocolate chip cookie is everything anyone would ever want from a cookie and more. While big enough to be shared, we would recommend devouring it all yourself. Hot tip — ask for it to be warmed up.

Steve Buresh’s Cheesecake Store & Sandwich Shop

Steve Buresh’s Cheesecake Store & Sandwich Shop clearly knows cheesecake and sandwiches, but over the years, they’ve built up a cult following for their homemade cookies. Ever-changing varieties often include brownie chip, cotton candy, oatmeal chocolate chip, sugar sprinkle and walnut chocolate chip — all packing a flavor punch while delivering on decadent indulgence. 

Milkshake and Cookies

Milkshake and Cookies is a cozy and delightful dessert shop nestled in the heart of Plainfield. The perfect family outing, they have something everyone can enjoy.  What sets their cookies apart is an extensive menu ranging from buttermelts and butterscotch caramel pecan to white cherry chocolate hazelnut and toffee butter crunch. They also offer vegan and gluten free varieties.
