Prospect Park opens new cookies and hip-hip combo shop
A new shop in Prospect Park is combining the arts of hip-hop and baking, and it's now open for business.
Doughpe Cookies on Rogers Avenue is bringing Brooklyn residents the ultimate combo they didn't know they needed. Founder Macketen Petion introduces flavors like “The Frank White Cookie,” inspired by Biggie's alter ego, and “Marathon Continues,” named after the late Nipsy Hustle.
"I was a hip-hop photographer for 10 years and of course, I'm just a hip-hop junkie. My family is full of bakers, so it was a great synergy of the two worlds," Petion said.
AI-designed artwork on the walls of the shop replaces famous hip-hop artists faces with cookies for the modern-day cookie monsters.
