Cow Chip Cookies are always on our list of things to eat at the Washington State Fair (preferably alongside giant strawberry-vanilla soft serve cones and Krusty Pups). Luckily, you can also get these legendary cookies at the brick and mortar location in Pioneer Square. If you like crunchy cookies, get out of here, because these are gooey, underbaked, and pretty much perfect. While our favorite is the classic chocolate chip, the almond-scented double chocolate is also a winner. If this place didn’t close at 6pm, we’d probably eat dinner here a couple times a month.
