The Simple Life

Lately your dessert orders have been as complicated as your coffee request: one pump hazelnut, two pumps vanilla, half soy, half skim.

For those who prefer things simple and sweet, there’s Cookie Monkey.

Owner/baker Marisa Scime is going back to basics with her recently launched cookie company. Based off an old family recipe, Scime designed three varieties of oversize, chewy chocolate chip cookies by adding better-for-you ingredients like whole-wheat flour, brown sugar, organic butter, and oatmeal.

But don’t expect to find mojito chips or guava flakes. Instead, choose from the classic No Monkeying Around, Go Nuts (with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups), or Say It Ain’t O (with double-stuffed Oreos).

The delivery-only company also bakes to-die-for frosted cookie cakes and cookie cupcakes and will cater any event.
