Mookies – cookies filled with mochi – have taken over New York
If there’s one thing New Yorkers go crazy for, it’s combo desserts. From cronuts to grilled cheesecake, the mashups always trigger a ton of social media posts, brain teasers, and a ton of online orders.
The next creative invention to take over our Instagram feeds and palates is the mookie: shortbread biscuits with mochi, made by Sunnyside, Queens-based Boiis Co.
You have three options to choose from: the salted caramel biscuit filled with caramel mochi, the ube biscuit with a filling of the same name and a matcha biscuit that is also filled with ube mochi. Additionally, those with a sweet tooth can expect a seasonal flavor to be added to the product list every month. April A wonderful selection is a Thai tea mookie with a Thai tea mochi filling. The company also plans to launch a Basque mochi cheesecake next month. Yum.

Boiis Co. now offers nationwide shipping and started selling tofu mochi canapes as early as 2019. After a successful run through a series of pop-ups (and a forced pandemic-triggered pause), the company unveiled the Mookie line of products, which unsurprisingly took over Instagram due to its photogenic properties.
Regarding culinary details, the treats are made with both all-purpose and cake flour, as well as European butter and sugar.
On the destination’s official website, they’re described as “bite-sized donuts that combine Asian-inspired flavors into a healthier, gluten-free, guiltless snack.” We’re not sure how guilt-free the indulgence actually is, but … do you really care? We all need something sweet now and then.
