Devouring Houston: Exploring Houston One Bite at a time

Houston has so many incredible food establishments...from sumptuously designed restaurants to fun storefronts selling gourmet cookies. From Mexican Food Carts to the Best BBQ in the World. And...I want to expore it one bite at a time.

Paula's Pastries

Another sweet treat for me today!  I ordered cookies and brownies from Paula's Pastries.  And, the sweet concoctions were even delivered to my front door by Paula herself (free delivery for customers in a 5 mile radius of 77063). 

The Brownies were very moist.  Almost undercooked.  Nuts were sprinkled throughout.  The brownies were glazed with chocolate ganache.  I think they had ganache....the ganache was spread way too thin.

Of the 3 types of cookies I sampled (Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Peanut Butter), the Peanut Butter was the best.  The Chocolate Chip was dry and burned on the bottom.  The Oatmeal Raisin was fairly uneventful.  The Peanut Butter had a good, mild peanut buttery flavor, and they looked the yummiest, as well.

Paula's Pastries are very homemade.  So, if you are looking for a more professional looking pastry, Paula's may not be for you.  However, if true homemade is what you are seeking, Paula's might be a great fit.  She offers a wide variety of cookies, breads, pies, and cakes.  Her cookies (above) are pricey at $15 for a dozen, but her cupcakes are only $18 a dozen (for comparison:  Michael's Cookie Jar sells similar cookies for $10 a dozen; and Crave Cupcakes sells a dozen cupcakes for $36).  Paula's brownies (which are very small) were $9 for a dozen.
