Sweet Treat: Cream'wiches
The cleverly named 'wichcraft serves some very tasty sandwiches and is a great place to grab lunch in the city with its dozen or so locations. But they also have a dessert that's worth a visit, cream'wiches: cookie sandwiches with yummy fillings. I stopped by last week, picked up all five flavors (they're just a $1.15 a piece) and poured a glass of milk for the taste test. The chocolate chip is the crispiest of the cookies filled with a mild, sweet vanilla frosting. The lemon poppy seed is soft and chewy with a tangy fruit preserve filling. Peanut butter is crumbly and extra peanut buttery. The chocolate is the richest, two crunchy cookies brought together with a dense, fudgy ganache. The oatmeal uses incredibly soft cookies and a caramelly cream cheese filling. I think I've settled on the oatmeal as my favorite, but I might need to perform a second trial just to be sure.
