This article is more than 8 years old.

Boston City Councilors are busy people, doing the work of governing our fair city. On Wednesday, though, they took a break from the serious work to name an unofficial official cookie of Boston.

The winner comes from Haley House, a non-profit that provides assistance to those dealing with issues of joblessness and homelessness. As a part of its Transitional Employment Program, Haley House gives formerly incarcerated individuals the opportunity to work in its cafe and bake some of Boston's most delicious chocolate chip cookies.
