The next stop on our whirlwind Vegas cookie tour was the Jean Philippe Patisserie at City Center's Aria Hotel. I settled on a chocolate chip walnut cookie for $3.95 and a Madeline for $1.50- relative bargains for this high-end store where you can also buy crepes, chocolates, ice cream, and coffee.
The chocolate chip walnut cookie will satisfy any craving. It was thick, buttery, and slightly chewy. Every bite was filled with mini-chocolate chips and similarly sized walnut pieces. Next time, if I can wait before digging in, I will microwave it for a few seconds for a gooey treat.
The puffy Madeline was average and had a slight lemon flavor. Starbucks Madelines are just as good.
