Honey Pie HK – homebaked cookies just like momma used to make!

25 July, 2012

UPDATE: Honey Pie is now closed.

As has already been discussed, my domestic goddess skills leave a lot to be desired – the closest I come to getting freshly-baked sweet treats is stalking the M&S Bakery until they bring out a new batch of cookies! For those of you, like me, who lack the skills, the time… or indeed, the oven… to produce amazing baked goods, Honey Pie may just become your new best friend.

Honey Pie was started by Justine, an American in Hong Kong, who just could not find the perfect cookie over here – so she decided to make her own instead! Using her own recipes for American-style cookies and muffins, Honey Pie bakes up a storm so you don’t have to, and then delivers the scrummy results straight to your doorstep.

Justine very kindly made some batches of her signature cookies for Team Sassy to try at our most recent wine tasting get-together. This was extra good news for me because, not only am I the resident dessert addict of the group, but I don’t actually drink wine… meaning that every time the rest of the girls downed a glass, I decided this translated to me chomping on a cookie instead. Good times!

Justine arrived in the cutest uniform, with the cookies presented in cardboard gift-boxes – and thrillingly, all were straight from the oven and still warm! Honey Pie makes five varieties of cookie – J. Bo’s Mess (choc chips, oats and coconut), Nikhil’s Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies, Sugar Cookies, Peanut Butter Crunch and Oatmeal Raisin – in two sizes. My absolute favourite was the J. Bo’s Mess – sweet but not too sweet, generous with the chocolate chips, and with just the right amount of chew, goo and crunch. The Peanut Butter Crunch, the perfect combination of sweet and salty and a flavour that is difficult to find in HK, was a close runner-up.

If you’ve been unimpressed with the cookies available so far here, then you absolutely have to try Honey Pie. They get the chewy/crunchy ratio just right and are so more-ish, you could easily put away half a dozen without even realising (I think I did). I’m a firm believer that you can tell when love has gone into cooking and I swear you can taste Justine’s magic homemade touch with each bite.

If they manage to get a few more flavours under their belt and expand their delivery area, Honey Pie could very well do for cookies in HK what Sift did for cupcakes! The cookies are perfect for sharing at parties or group dinners, and I’m sure delivery of a batch would pep up any tired office team or corporate event too. I’m planning my next order already…

Batches of 6 regular-sized cookies or 12 smaller celebration-sized ones cost $90, including delivery (plus 10% off if you order 4 or more batches). Orders generally need at least 24 hours notice.

Delivery is available to Sheung Wan, Central, Soho, Mid-Levels and ICC; if you live outside those areas, you can pick up from Sheung Wan or discuss delivery options with Justine.
