Karlie's Kookies are not a Kardashian brand extension but rather a collaboration between model Karlie Kloss and a pastry chef by the name of Christina Tosi (of Momofuku Milk Bar, purveyor of cereal-milk ice cream and a nasty-good Crack Pie). Their oatmeal-chocolate-chip lovechild, the first Kookie called the “Perfect 10,” debuted last night during Fashion's Night Out...

And I'm here to tell you that they're incredible. I just housed the melted sample that Kloss slipped Emily backstage at Jason Wu, and we're talking, like, the best gluten-free, dairy-free, agave-sweetened cookie I've ever had. (I did the gluten-free thing for over a year and have eaten my weight in this kind of stuff.) You wouldn't think a model would have it in her to make a tasty treat, and you, like me, would be wrong. It's a soft, chewy mix of mini chocolate chips and gluten-free oats, with slivers of roasted almonds, making for a nice crunch/chew pattern. But I'm not just bragging about eating an awesome cookie that no one else can get their paws on—it seems like Kloss is trying to spin this into a business. She told us that, along with shooting the new MTV “House of Style' with fellow IMG-er Joan Smalls, she's developing Kookies as a “pet project,” (Some of the proceeds are going to FEED.) At the moment, she's on the hunt for willing retailers—the dream is Whole Foods. (Any readers have an in?) “I'm taking down the Keebler elves,” she promised. “I'm taking 'em down,” Elves, she's a lot taller than you, and her cookies are the bomb, so consider yourselves warned.
