Here's some sweet, sweet news for a cold, cold day: Cookbook author and all-around baking goddess Dorie Greenspan is bringing her CookieBar pop-up store back for another stint on Park Avenue.

Greenspan writes in to say that from February 7 through 11, she and her son, Josh, will once again sell their cookies at Mizu, a salon at 505 Park Avenue. From 10 a.m. until whenever they run out, the Greenspans will sell eight kinds of cookies. In addition to classics like coconut lime sablés and World Peace Cookies, the menu will feature a new line of Jammers, sablés endowed with streusel and jam from Sarabeth's. If the descriptions on the menu, which follows below, are any indication, expect them to sell out sooner rather than later.

THE SABLÉS French butter cookies baked in our signature straight-sided rounds

SUGAR-TOPPED VANILLA SABLÉS: Crisp around the edges and just a tad tender in the center, these sparkly, sugar-sprinkled French shortbread cookies have the good taste of butter, butter and more butter, and pure, rich vanilla, too.

COCONUT-LIME SABLÉS: Lots of freshly grated lime zest rubbed into sugar, toasted coconut and a pinch of cardamom (impossible to place, but it ups the ante on all the flavors) give these cookies a taste of the tropics - perfect for the dead of winter.

ESPRESSO-CHOCOLATE SABLÉS: A mix of butter, of course, strong espresso and tiny hand-chopped bits of Valrhona Extra-Bitter Chocolate - a sophisticated cookie that's as good as an afternoon pick-me-up as it is with a late-night drink

THE CHOCOLATES Two remarkable cookies made with lots and lots of Valrhona Chocolate

WORLD PEACE COOKIES: Our icon cookie, taught to us by our friend, Pierre Hermé, France's most famous pastry chef, gets its rich, deep flavor from Valrhona Cocoa and hand-chopped Valrhona Extra-Bitter Chocolate and its irresistible snackability from just enough fleur-de-sel from Guérande.

CHOCOLATE CHUNKERS: A cookie that's almost all chunk and some chew, it's got four kinds of Valrhona Chocolate (cocoa, pure unsweetened, Jivara Milk Chocolate and Extra-Bitter), lots of plump, tangy dried cherries and even more chopped salted cashews. Oh, and its just a little soft in the center.

THE JAMMERS Triple-treat cookies: sablés, Sarabeth jam and streusel

STRAWBERRY-RASPBERRY JAMMERS: Vanilla sablés topped with Sarabeth's Strawberry-Raspberry Legendary Spreadable Fruits and finished with vanilla-bean streusel.

PEAR-PINEAPPLE JAMMERS: Lemon sablés (we get the bright flavor by hand- rubbing freshly grated lemon zest into sugar) topped with Sarabeth's Lemony Pear-Pineapple Preserves - she's debuting this jam with our cookies - and finished with vanilla-bean streusel.
