For me, the hummingbird cookies at Schmackary’s in New York City evoke the best feelings. So, I had to figure out a way to bake Schmackary’s inspired hummingbird cookies.
Some foods have a magical quality – they’re not just a meal; they’re an experience. You know the ones – the street tacos from that tiny corner stall, the aromatic spices of a bustling market, or that sweet treat from a quaint bakery. These flavors don’t just satisfy your hunger; they etch themselves into your memory. They become a part of your journey, a story to tell, and a reason to return.
My friend & I enjoyed a trip to Manhattan complete with a walking food tour through Hell’s Kitchen with Manhattan Walking Tours (use promo code dwdtravel for a discount). Our guide, Jake, was incredible, teaching us all the amazing rich history in the area. We experienced bites at 5 or 6 restaurants and dessert at the famed Schmackary’s. I opted to try the Hummingbird Cookie, and oh my goodness!
I dream about these delicious cookies even! I enjoyed attempting to recreate them. Though they aren’t quite the same, paired with a cream cheese icing, this recipe is pretty darn close.
So, whether you’re planning your next trip to the bustling streets of NYC or creating your own culinary masterpieces at home, remember that food is more than sustenance; it’s a tapestry of memories waiting to be woven. Enjoy the journey, savor the flavors, and don’t forget the cream cheese icing on these Schmackary’s inspired hummingbird cookies!
