Finally caught We Love Cookies during their open hours again and spotted a new refrigerated display case for cupcakes and lots more options.
The first thing I had to try? Red Velvet whoopie pies!!
Cupcakes and mini cheesecakes are NT$50, whoopie pies NT$25, cookies are still 5 for NT$100. Flavors of the day were carrot cake, mint chocolate chip, passion fruit, Bailey's and banana cupcake with chocolate frosting. Cookies are not usually available until after 5pm, but will be warm and fresh from the oven.
The Bailey's cupcake had Bailey's irish creme liqueur in the frosting, as well as coconuts and pecans. The cupcake was moist with a few chocolate chips inside.
The cookies are still chewy and delicious even a day or two after buying them- my favorites are still the chocolate brownie dusted with powdered sugar and the cornflake cookie with dried cranberries.
Oh and the red velvet whoopie pies were good! Moist with cream cheese frosting in between the cake cookie layers, it was the right amount of sweetness and tasted like it could come out of any trendy bakery in LA.
Still no official sign for the storefront as We Love Cookies shop is a still a "work in progress", but look for it in between the Sababa or the instant ramen shop, a few alleys behind Tai Yi Milk King, across from Taida. Perfect for picking up some desserts for the next holiday potluck.
