A gift card is a simple means to an end. You make it count. I understand Otterbein’s Bakery, from an online perspective. A prominent, crispy cookie excites me. You visit any bakery and can get a cookie with the characteristics of your ultimate crispy wafer. It snaps. The important cookie cracks. The confection crumbles, but only the taste matters, in the end.


Otterbein's Bakery, established in Baltimore, Maryland, carries itself as the home of Baltimore’s Best Cookie. I do not know the best cookie in Philadelphia. However, there are some great ones in the City of Brotherly Love. The idea of a lavish gift card excites me. It gives me one wish, to taste this crunchy cookie. It provides a great opportunity, and an excuse to make an online purchase. The grass is greener on the other side. What happens when a cookie from Baltimore drives to Philadelphia?


You expect a crisp cookie. You can dream of its greatest characteristics. This crunchy icon works well with hot chocolate. It melds with an abrasive winter. The homely cookie flourishes in autumn, or during any seasonal change. This magical wafer acts as the after work settlement. This sensational dessert cures your ills after you shovel the snow, or after you rake the fall leaves.

After 133 years, in my opinion, these cookies mean business.


The theme for this cookie, in my opinion, is a thin deception. The Ginger Cookie and the Chocolate Chip Cookie have a solid reputation. They also create more respect for what is available in my hometown. Otterbein’s Chocolate Chip cookie is simply a firm tradition, and a bold announcement, in a solid cookie. The base of the cookie is a thin, buttery, vixen. Inside, it holds sweet chocolate chips, with nothing to hide. It blends wonderfully.


The Ginger Cookie follows the same path. It is a slender, subtle, snap cookie. The wafer is a sweet, crisp ginger, and molasses, cookie. This cookie demolishes your taste buds. The thin reputation is part of what makes these cookies so solid. They hold their slim shape until you have to break them. It is not a question of whether it will hold together, in hot chocolate, tea, or even coffee. It passes the test.


Once you have one cookie, especially in moments with friends, they will be gone. I have two bags. Clearly, it is not enough. It makes me both skeptical, and sad. A repeat purchase is out of the question, at least, not without the proper comparison. There is a need to test some local favorites against this thin nemesis. How will Otterbein’s cookies fair against some of the best Philadelphia has to offer?


For now, in this immature review, these are solid cookies from Baltimore.

Adam Otterbein, who came from Germany, builds his first bakery near Fort McHenry, in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1881. His knowledge, of German breads and pastries, starts this bakery. Adam Otterbein creates a thin, hand cut sugar cookie that calls attention to the bakery. Otterbein’s reputation expands and the bakery’s success continues, to this day.

      It surprised me, how thin this cookie is. It's the taste that stands out. I have to test it against my local favorites.
