Lard Cookies Move Out of the Panaderia and into Humphry Slocombe

Categories: Sweet Beat

Cover your ears, pork haters. Lard's an essential ingredient at Mexican panaderias like La Victoria on 24th St. in the Mission -- it makes for incredibly short, crumbly pastries. As of today, it's come full circle, without ever leaving the neighborhood. Post-mod ice cream shop Humphry Slocombe announced via tweet that it'd baked off a big old batch of shortbread cookies enriched with lard from the salumeria Boccalone. Humphry owner Jake Godby told SFoodie the cookies contain a bit of cornmeal and rosemary, and cost $3.50 for four specimens. Score the crumbly, pork-scented goodness both at Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.) and Boccalone (Ferry Building Marketplace #21).
