The research is finished and the results are in. In our unofficial tally, Vermont’s cutest cookie is, without a doubt, the Kingdom Cow. They are made at Bentley’s Bakery & Café in Danville, a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it hamlet in the Northeast Kingdom. The cow-shaped shortbread cookie is slathered with vanilla icing and dappled with chocolate spots. Look for them in the same case with the leaf-shaped, maple-glazed cookies and the Muddy Moose gingerbread cookies. Owners Jeff and Nancy Frampton hail from Montreal, so the bakery has a bit of French influence as well, with croissants in the morning and quiche at lunch. Plan on stopping by the next time you’re headed to Jay Peak.
Bentley’s Bakery & Café, 20 Hill St., Danville; (802) 684-3385; www.bentleysbakeryvt.com
