When it comes to love, moms know best.
Crowds who flock to Uptown’s chicken haunt have lately been clamoring for her off-menu cookies, baked on a whim and elegantly presented in a case up front.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, Subido — in true mother goose form — created special cookie boxes just for DailyCandy readers: three walnut-studded chocolate chip with dried cherries, plus five coconut-heavy chocolate chip macaroons, sealed with a kiss (a ribbon, really), for a mere $6.
She throws in a recipe for the chocolate chip cookies, so you can attempt to re-create them at home. As for the macaroons?
Mum’s the word.
Pecking Order, 4416 North Clark Street, between Montrose and Sunnyside Avenues (773-907-9900 or peckingorderchicago.com). Boxes are available today through February 14.
