This Baltimore favorite is commonly referred to as life changing. A perfectly crumbly shortbread cookie topped with fudgy, frosting-esque chocolate. They may not look like works of art, but these hand-dipped treats sure do taste incredible.

A Baltimore staple since 1881, the bakery is still family-owned. With five unbelievable varieties—sugar, ginger (which goes incredibly well with beer), lemon sugar, chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin—they hold a special place in our hearts and stomachs. They don’t advertise, so you know that they have to be good enough to stand on their own.

These salted chocolate chip cookies are next level. The sweet and savory flavor combination is augmented by layer upon layer of chips, which are more like chunks, of decadent chocolate. They are specially made in small batches so that every cookie is as close to perfect as possible.
