Lord knows there was room for them. Knockout Cookies take their name from their massive size. If used maliciously, baker Allison Smith warns, just one could take out a bystander.

“We are making big, stuffed, very indulgent cookies,” says Smith of Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts, who recently launched Knockout Cookies with workout partner Anastasia Graham as a side project. While the cookie program doesn’t yet have a permanent retail home, Smith regularly updates Knockout’s Instagram feed with appearance information. Learn more at instagram.com/knockout.cookies.
