Rustica Cookies & Creamery will open Saturday, Dec. 10 at Mall of America. The new dessert-only concept from the Minneapolis bakery will feature cookies, soft serve ice cream and coffee. The menu was developed by Ben Spangler, who helped create the original flavors for Milkjam Creamery in Minneapolis.
The menu includes bittersweet chocolate, rustic chocolate chip, and ginger molasses. There’s also blueberry cornmeal and lemon, birthday cake nutella stuffed peanut butter sandwich, and Rustica’s spin on Samoas, the famous Girl Scout cookie. The Creamery portion will feature roasted vanilla bean, valrhona creamy dark chocolate, and one we’ll need to taste to believe: roasted sweet potato pie. Customers will be able to top their soft serve with handmade toppings such as 24k gold sauce (with real gold leaf!) and giant house made marshmallows.
Rustica Cookies & Creamery is located in the new north wing, across from Zara.
