Ruby Snap’s tagline, “You know you want my cookies,” hits the nail right on the head. Taking inspiration from pin-up dolls, the bakery’s delicious creations are named after the iconic ladies of the 1950’s. Our favorite have to be Audrey, an almond cookie with cranberries and white chocolate, and Lola, lemon cookie made with panela curd and topped with lemon bitters.
