But to make it up to you, I’m revealing a wonderful new addition to the markets of New York City: Mini Moon Pies from Big Girl Baking Co. at the Chelsea Triangle French Market. Their mini moon pies are dreamy. Comprised of two moist yet crumbly chocolate cookie cakes with a smooth, whitewhite frosting inside, these moon pies make you close your eyes and go “mmmmmmmmmmmmm,” not only because they are fantastic to taste but also because your tongue has been sweetly glued to the roof of your mouth. Perfect, in other words. And just big enough to give you all the pleasure and none of the guilt. Big Girl also makes cakey muffins, crispy cookies, and an outstanding nut mix, among other delicacies.
The Chelsea Triangle French Market is open Fridays and Saturdays on 9th Ave. between 14th and 15th Streets. Here’s a video I made from Opening Day.
