I wonder if Santa would eat the cookies put out on Christmas Eve if he has had Schmackary's.  This cookie heaven in the Big Apple was started as a hobby by an aspiring actor from Lincoln, Nebraska.  First selling by the dozen out of his tiny apartment in Hell's Kitchen, Zachary Schmahl now has a storefront with the cutest painting on 45th and 9th in Midtown.

As you can tell from the above photos, the cookies offered are a bit... different.  Schmackary's sells over 40 kinds of cookies, including the more "normal" classics and the more exciting seasonal cookies.  Just looking at these cookies, I think I'm going to be stopping by at least every other day...

I tried the Key Lime and Sch'mores cookies since they seemed to be the most interesting.  Munching on the key lime cookie was like taking bites of a luscious key lime pie.  To say the least, I was amazed.  The Sch'mores was delicious where there was the toasted marshmallow on top, but eating the cookie itself, there was a spice that made it taste a bit funky.  Although I'm still not sure how I feel about the Sch'mores, I'm definitely ready to go back for some more cookies!
