I have a problem with cookies. Actually, I have two problems. The first is that I can’t resist a good one (or three or four). But then I inevitably feel guilty afterward. No more! Project Angel Food, the charity that cooks and delivers more than 13,000 meals a week to people affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening diseases, has just released its own line of really good cookies, baked at the Project Angel Food kitchen near Hollywood and Vine. There's a sugar cookie with lemon icing, a really nice subtle gingersnap and a crisp-style chocolate chip. They're available at the Pavilions in West Hollywood and Hollywood and, best of all, those markets have agreed to donate the entire price of the package of cookies back to Project Angel Food. A sweet win-win.
Project Angel Food Bakers cookies, $3.99 per package. Available at Pavilions Hollywood, 727 N. Vine St., and Pavilions West Hollywood, 8969 Santa Monica Blvd. For more information, go to www.projectangelfood.org.
