Milk Jar

Best Snickerdoodle, August 2014

Unlike its more popular sister, the chocolate chip cookie, a snickerdoodle’s success depends less on what’s inside than what’s on top. The qualities of the golden domes at Milk Jar are similar to those we seek in a good mate: soft on the inside, solid around the edges. Called “Cinnamon Sugar,” the cookie sports a dusting of spice and sweetness and is the perfect post-LACMA pick-me-up or treat after a concert at the nearby El Rey Theatre—the bakery is open until 11 p.m. on weekends.
