Red Velvet Cookies in Studio City: Xtreme Desserts
After selling their sandwich cookies at Farmers Markets for several years, Extreme Desserts has opened a retail shop in Studio City, in the Trader Joe's strip mall at Ventura and Laurel Canyon.
I reviewed their signature red velvet sandwich cookie back when they were only selling at Farmers Markets and found it quite good. They now have a whole line up of sandwich cookies, brownies and even some small cakes.
The red velvet is still the signature and is about as I described it, like an oreo made of red velvet cake. My favorite though, was probably the pecan pie cookie. The cookies on the pecan pie were more cookie like and the filling was a rich, nutty pecan pie filling. It did a great job of presenting pecan pie in cookie form.
They've only been open for a few weeks, and the shop is still pretty bare bones, so I'm guessing there will be more to come.
