See The Davenport Cookie Covered in 24k Gold Leaf
Lovers of fashion and cookies unite, for Feb. 17 will feature a special cookie at a Davenport bakery.
Meet Cookie Couture, an aptly named specialty flavor from Cookies & Dreams in downtown Davenport. They recently sent the cookie to be featured at New York Fashion Week and it's perfect for the occasion.
According to the bakery's Instagram post, Cookie Couture is a white chocolate & ruby chocolate (more on that flavor in a second) sugar cookie. The inside of the cookie features a fresh raspberry chambord cheesecake filling. The topping? Sprinkles of 24k edible gold leaf and drizzles of milk & white chocolate. As the post says the cookie is "hand made for the runway".
Ruby chocolate is rare and gets its unique pink color from a special fermentation process. It tastes very creamy and tangy on its own, with a nod to raspberries, which is what makes raspberries a complementary flavor profile for it. The post says that the ruby cocoa beans are heavily influenced by things like weather, soil, and their environment, like wine is.
The dreamy, fashion-forward cookie goes will go on sale on Feb. 17 at 10:00 a.m. online and at Cookies and Dreams storefront, located at 217 E. 2nd St in Davenport. The cookie is only available on Feb. 17 and there's a limited number of cookies available so be ready to act quickly. I may or may not have set a reminder on my phone.
