"Pas Pour Les Chiens" translates to "not for dogs," and indeed these dog biscuit-shaped cookies by Poilâne are created for humans. We brought you to La Bôite à Biscuits for Snow Clouds on Monday, and I think you can tell by now that we're smitten with this 11th Avenue biscuit and spice gallery. What is the link between La Bôite à Biscuits and Poilâne, the beloved Parisian boulangerie? Spices!

The biscuits (baked in Paris and shipped to NYC) are made with an exclusive blend of spices from Lior Lev Sercarz, the owner of La Bôite à Biscuits. It's the only place in city where you can find these Poilâne gems to-go. The buttery biscuits ($15/box) are crisp and then crumble in the mouth; they hint of nutmeg and ground peppercorns and balance a fine line of sweet and savory. For Poilâne aficionados, take note: Lior also carries those famous Poilâne linen bags—no need to trek to Paris to get your fix!
