Ever since Kopp's Bakery in Middle Village closed, I have been on a fruitless search for the best rainbow cookies (also known as tri-colors or 7-layer cookies) in the NY area.
I have been consistently disappointed by various bakeries and pastry shops. My biggest complaint is generally the dryness and staleness of the cakes.
Preferably, looking for places in Manhattan, but willing to borrow a car and trek anywhere in the NY metro area. Thanks!
