Have you ever had those really stressful days when nothing is going right so you just want to curl up somewhere and seek comfort from a delicious cookie?
During those kinds of days, you know that the comfort you get from a regular-sized cookie won’t be enough.
How about a cookie the size of the palm of your hand?
This monster-sized cookie (and other similar sized variants) are made by Extra Butter.
This new online food seller is a collaboration between two siblings who both have impressive backgrounds in the Pasig food scene: Ingrid and Renz Mediarito.
Ingrid is a culinary instructor and entrepreneur who also runs Buffalo Swing Cafe and Ingrid’s Sweet Haven Pattiserie while Renz is one of the managing partners behind Moonshine Pub and Union Square Pizza.
During the quarantine, the siblings decided to engage in a joint project: a dessert shop that sells palm-sized cookies.
What exactly is an Extra Butter Cookie? Well, it is 150 grams of sweetness, comfort and indulgence. It features familiar flavors enhanced by the use of premium ingredients (such as couverture chocolates) sourced from local suppliers (so it also supports local business). It’s an amalgam of moist and chewy cookie goodness interspersed with interesting textures. It has no preservatives and is baked on a per-order basis.
An Extra Butter Cookie can be one of six flavors:Triple Chocolate Ganache. Belgian chocolate cookie batter with ganache filling and milk chocolate couverture.
Double Milk Chocolate. Batter made with nutty butter mixed with milk chocolate couverture.
70% Dark Chocolate. Batter made with creamed brown butter mixed with two variants of 70% dark chocolate couverture.
Cranberry & White Chocolate. Oatmeal cookies with tangy dried cranberries and white chocolate callets.
Matcha & Black Sesame Seeds. Cookie dough flavored with Japanese green tea with black sesame seeds and white chocolate chunks.
Salted Butterscotch. Cookie studded with caramel chocolate callets, toasted marshmallows and salted pretzel.
