Microwaves. The West Indies. Me-Oh-My Pie Shop’s Thin-Crust Chocolate Chip Cookies. Sometimes the greatest discoveries occur by mistake. Former opera singer and broker Debra Every was baking a routine batch of cookies when something went unexpectedly wrong, resulting in a sheet of super-thin, crispy cookies — which proved to be a surprise hit among family, friends, and customers. Every won’t tell the secret behind this happy accident, but speculates that the cookies — which were awarded “best dessert” at the 2009 Taste of Rhinebeck — resonate with customers because they resemble their mothers’ homemade treats. Whatever the reason, whether you bring home a bag ($6.50 a dozen) or have them on-site ($3.95 for four served with the cafe’s freshly whipped cream), one thing is certain: These cookies are seriously addicting.
