My Favorite Cookie in Seattle: The Chubby from Monorail Espresso

Pecan chocolate chip chubbie cookie from Monorail Espresso
Say hello to my favorite cookie in Seattle.

Its name is Chubby, and it lives not at a bakery but at Monorail Espresso downtown (one of the oldest espresso stands in the city). They're made in small batches by hand by Mr. Espresso himself, Chuck Beek.

They're slightly bigger than a golf ball, and taste-wise they fall somewhere, delectably, between a chocolate chip cookie and a shortbread cookie: slightly crunchy/sandy on the outside, and dense and chewy on the inside. "Perfect" may not be the best word to describe them, but it's the first one that comes to mind.

If you are what you eat, this is the kind of chubby to which I aspire.

Chubby Cookies (with or without pecans) are available at Monorail Espresso, 520 Pike Street; for more information, click here.
