I had a chance to catch up on the food scene, and as part of that, I found myself at good ol' San Antonio Bakery 2 on Astoria Blvd. Just finishing a lovely lunch at the Queens Kickshaw (more on that later), I wanted something sweet to fully seal my mid-day food excursion. I remember Meg talking about a cookie she recently tried there, and being that I'm naturally very curious, I popped in to pick one out for myself.
Spongy Caramel Cookie - As you can tell, I don't know the official name for these, but I'm here to tell you that they are dee-licious. Previously trying a similar cookie except for a crunchy/flaky exterior vs. the spongy one I got this time, the latter was a totally different experience. Sure, the filling was the same - a custardy, caramel sauce that I could've eaten on bread in lieu of butter - but the outside sponge cake made it really light. The cookie appears pretty large (as it is) but don't let that fool you, it's totally poppable in one shot. It sort of looks like a doughnut before it's cut open, but I wanted to show you the gorgeous caramel inside. At $2.50 a piece it's not cheap but know that you're getting something interesting and unique that could make a nice snack for you or a great dessert for when you entertain.
