Cookie Dough & Co. Opens at Cross Street Market in Federal Hill

| December 11, 2017 | 0 Comments

Cookie Dough & Co. opened at Federal Hill’s Cross Street Market on Saturday. This is the second location for the edible cookie dough business. Its new stall is at the former home of Buttercream Dreams, which closed in 2016.

Cookie Dough & Co. was started by Patrick Exon and Dan Ju, who also own Pinch, a Chinese dumplings stall at Mount Vernon Marketplace. Cookie Dough & Co. opened its first location at Montgomery Mall in Bethesda in August. It also did a pop-up recently at Mount Vernon Marketplace and has another location planned for Tyson Corner Center in Virginia.

Exon and Ju got the idea for the business after seeing edible cookie dough in New York. Their cookie dough, which is safe to eat, is made with pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour.

Cookie Dough & Co. will offer five to nine flavors at a time, and customers can order it in a cup or cone and add toppings if they like. Each order comes with a shot of milk. Cookie Dough & Co. also sells dough bites and will serve Asian bubble tea.

Exon told that many of the cookie dough recipes are the creation of Ju’s wife.

Exon said they chose Cross Street Market for its next location because Federal Hill is a great neighborhood.

Cookie Dough & Co.’s current stall location will be temporary as the market works though phased renovations during its redevelopment by Caves Valley Partners. These renovations will begin early next year.

Exon said minimal construction was needed to get their current stall up and running.

Cookie Dough & Co. will be open Monday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm. Exon noted that they are still “feeling out” what hours they will be open on Sundays. The stall employs three people.

Cookie Dough & Co. joins Prescription Chicken and Gertie’s Yummy Yogurt Bowls, Smoke, and Sundays as new stalls that opened at Cross Street Market last week. Big Jim’s Deli announced last week that its last day will be on December 16th.
