During my trip in St. Louis, we had a little meet up. It was just a little meet up with beer, wine, and snacks. I decided to pick up some desserts for the week. A quick search on the Interwebs reveals a place called Dad's Cookies. When I first drove by, I nearly missed it as it is located in a residential area.
Dad's Cookies has been
around since 1938, and they sell by the pound. The cookies are kept in
giant bins. You order your desired amount by weight, and they are weighed
out on an old fashioned scale.
A large part of the charm of this place is the scale, and the history.
The owners also mentioned that these were the original recipes (made with lard).
The original recipes were created prior to the ice boxes being widely
I purchased several flavors including the Scotch Oatmeal, Peanut Butter,
Double Chocolate, and Chocolate Chip. The cookies weren't crazy flavors,
but good and old fashioned - perfect for a gathering.
