CommonWealth Kitchen Holiday Shop At Boston Public Market

What we are (and what we are not)

Thanks for stopping by Top Shelf Cookies' new site.  We're looking forward to being able to take orders online and for this site to grow and evolve as Top Shelf Cookies continues to grow! Top Shelf Cookies is all about bringing Boston a better cookie. The chocolate chip cookie was born here, but we're all about bringing that to a new level.  So we make what you know, but better!  We have your chocolate chip, your oatmeal raisin and even straight up peanut butter.  But what we also really enjoy is coming up with specialty flavors like PB Toffee Treasures, Fluffernutter, ChocoLatte and our signature Black & Gold.  We love to tinker around and see what happens when we put hot sauce...
