Few things hit the spot quite like a chocolate chip cookie. Whether you prefer yours crispy or chewy, it's the ideal pick-me-up after a long day (or a short one—you don't need a reason to indulge). While everyone has a personal favorite recipe, sometimes, you just want instant satisfaction. Thankfully, Maman is here to help. The charming New York-based French bakery and café known for its insanely delicious cookies is now offering the cult-favorite dessert for shipping nationwide, just in time for National Chocolate Day (which is today, ICYMI).

What makes them so special, exactly? "They're crispy, chewy, sweet, salty, nutty, and oh-so-chocolatey," says chef and co-owner Elisa Marshall, who helms the chain with her husband, Benjamin Sormonte, and Michelin-starred chef Armand Arnal. The sought-after recipe is based on one her mother made when she was growing up in Toronto (psst, "maman" translates to "mother" in French). Plus, the cookies come in custom-made boxes decorated with Maman's trademark rose-and-peony print, rendering them the perfect gift. Because who wouldn't love a box of freshly baked cookies on their doorstep?
