Chunky, chewy and oh-so gooey, these oversized desserts are worth the wait in Fountain Valley. You can stock up on filled malasadas and cheesy ensaymadas all you want, but do not leave without a few cookies. Made with love and Belgian chocolate, Paderia manages to sneak in bits of pecans and walnuts for extra deliciousness. Grab them early in the day, as they tend to sell out during lunch hour.
