Truth of the Batter
Edible cookie dough has arrived at Ponce City Market
If you’ve ever been one to steal a taste (or two) of cookie dough while baking, you’re not alone. Julie Abes founded Batter Cookie Dough for just that reason.
“I was definitely the kid who always wanted to eat [the dough],” says Abes. “I have children, and when we make cookies, I’ll have to keep their hands out of it or we’ll have no cookies because they eat all the dough.”
Batter’s new brick-and-mortar location inside Ponce City Market opened in late 2017. The 320-square-foot stall is decorated with vintage cookie jars and offers a plethora of dough options that are not only delicious but also eggless and made from hand treated, safe-to-eat flour, as well as all-natural ingredients with no preservatives. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available.
The walk-up dessert counter serves seasonal flavors such as s’mores, salted caramel and lemon, along with a variety of toppings.
In addition to cookie dough, the stall offers freshly baked cookies, cold brew coffee and, of course, milk. If indulging from home is more your speed, pick up a pint of Batter cookie dough to-go.
