Sampling SLC: cookies

Les Madeleines

I knew Salt Lake had finally grown up when Les Madeleins opened in December 2003. This is a baker’s bakery, a pastry chef’s patisserie, and a Willy Wonka store for grown-ups. Romina Rasmussen has somehow opened a portal from France to Utah, and although her attention to detail and dedication to quality does not come cheap, her cookies are worth every penny.

From the sweet little macaroon buttons (the ones pictured here are raspberry, pistachio, hazelnut and coffee), to the amazing shortbreads, these cookies are little bundles of heaven. My favorite cookie ever is the butter toffee shortbread (next to the top of the Eiffel Tower on the right in the picture). I can’t get enough of the luscious, buttery things, and luckily one or two is plenty.

Prices range from 90cents to to $2.25 per cookie (the large carrot cake cookie on the center left in the picture was $3.25).
