Nothing Beats the Smell of Freshly Baked Cookies – The New York Times

Like many restaurateurs and chefs trying to survive the pandemic, Jonathan Benno has gone into the meal kit business. Along with dinner dishes to assemble at home, his Leonelli Focacceria e Pasticceria in the NoMad section of Manhattan is offering frozen chocolate chip cookie dough, ready to bake. Leave space on the baking sheet: The dough makes hefty confections that spread to about four inches in diameter and are thickly peppered with bits of Italian chocolate. You can’t bake just one; the kit comes with a baker’s dozen.

Amedei Chocolate Chunk Cookie Kit, $25, plus tax and delivery fees, for pick up and delivery, Leonelli Focacceria e Pasticceria, 7 East 27th Street, 212-451-9495,
