Crave: Dough Ray Me Cookies

I’m seriously addicted to these itty-bitty cookies. Each kind is named after friends of the company’s owner, Jon Chazen. “It’s a way to honor them,” he says. “I don’t name them after anyone I was intimate with—no ex-girlfriends, not even my wife—and she understands.” Jon worked at Barneys New York selling women’s shoes, but one day he had an epiphany and decided to go to baking school. Once he realized his true calling, he started his own bakery, and the rest is history. My favorite flavor is the “Summaiya.” They’re chewy oatmeal cookies with raisins, sour cherries and, get this, crushed potato chips. It’s a perfect sweet, sour and salty combination. Jon told me he put so many different layers in this one because Summaiya “had a simplicity about her, but she was very complicated at the same time.” Now I want a cookie named after me. I’m thinking chewy chocolate with raspberry chocolate chips. Here’s hoping Jon needs a new BFF. [$45 for tin with six dozen cookies, Dough-Ray-Me]
