|Cherry Pie at Kitchenette|
Unfortunately, for this food adventure I tasted quite a few apple pies and I was sadly disappointed. I know this is considered the quintessential American dessert but it just didn't work out with finding a great apple pie. But no worries, I did come across a pretty good pie at Kitchenette. They have a variety of small pies, I ate a slice of their cherry pie. The crust had a nice buttery and sweet taste (personally I like sugar on my crust), the filling had a sweet and tangy taste; overall a great slice of pie (finally!).
Next on my list were chocolate chip cookies. Random fact: Chocolate chips were invented in Massachusetts by Ruth Graves Wakefield in 1937. I tasted a few chocolate chip cookies, but the best one I tasted this week was at Jacques Torres Chocolates in the Upper West Side. These cookies are big and chewy, with gooey chocolate melted inside....love them!

If you have the time, grab your brownie and head over to the High Line Park (the 14th Street entrance is just south of the Chelsea Market). You can enjoy your brownie, while taking in a view of the newly expanded park.
