When your sweet tooth kicks in this Labor Day weekend, head to EMP Summer House in East Hampton, where a very special collaboration is happening, but for just one day only.

"We're bringing Milk Bar to the EMP Summer House this Sunday with cookies, crack pie & b'day cake truffles in tow, with proceeds going to a cause very close to my heart!" shared Milk Bar founder & CEO, Christina Tosi.

100 percent of profits from the collaboration will benefit Cookies for Kids' Cancer (CFKC), which supports childhood cancer research.

"I first met Gretchen at a 2012 Amagansett Cookies for Kids' Cancer bake sale and am pumped to help raise money and awareness for such a sweet organization!" Tosi, who serves on the Board of Directors for Cookies for Kids' Cancer, explained.

In addition to the Milk Bar x Cookies for Kids' Cancer collaboration at EMP Summer House, you can also satisfy your dessert cravings at the 10th annual Cookies for Kids' Cancer Hamptons Bake Sale.

"Cookies for Kids' Cancer founder Gretchen Witt is a longtime friend of mine and I've been on board to help in any way I can since day one," explained Michelle Jassem, who is on the Cookies for Kids' Cancer Board of Directors. "We have been hosting bake sales for CFKC here in Amagansett for almost ten years."

The Hamptons Bake Sale will be making stops at Knockout Beauty (2400 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton) on Thursday, August 31 from 1 to 3 p.m., while on Friday, September 1, you can indulge at Dabney Lee (183 North Ferry Road, Shelter Island) from 1 to 3 p.m., Pink Chicken (14 Amagansett Square, Unit D, Amagansett) from 1 to 3 p.m. and Stella & Ruby (144 Main Street, Sag Harbor) from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, September 3 will feature Milk Bar at EMP Summer House (341 Pantigo Road, East Hampton), which will be open from 12 to 5 p.m., with kid-friendly entertainment, sponsored by Restaurant Girl Danyelle Freeman, from 12 to 3 p.m.

"The events have grown from my friends and I selling cookies in our driveway to our kids getting involved in the planning and now we're hosting the sale at Pink Chicken on Amagansett Square," explained Jassem. "To me, the CFKC bake sale is all about families helping families."

The Sunday Milk Bar x Cookies for Kids' Cancer extravaganza will feature Milk Bar's crack pie (toasted oat crust with a gooey butter filling) - available by the slice or a whole pie; confetti cookie™ (just like the milk bar b'day truffles and layer cake, this sugar cookie is full of birthday sprinkles, birthday crumbs and that familiar old fashioned vanilla flavor); compost cookie® (packed with pretzels, potato chips, coffee, oats, graham cracker, butterscotch and chocolate chips, this cookie strikes the perfect balance between salty and sweet); blueberry & cream cookie™ (sugar cookie dough, bits of milk crumbs and morsels of dried blueberries transform into a cookie that tastes just like the top of a blueberry muffin); corn cookie (the familiar flavors from cornbread transform into this sweet, buttery cookie! it's a milk bar cult favorite); cornflake-chocolate-chip-marshmallow cookie (​a play on the classic chocolate chip cookie with crunchy cornflakes, gooey marshmallows and mini chocolate chips); chocolate-chocolate cookie (chocolate cookie dough, chocolate crumbs and a hint of salt makes this dense and fudgy cookie taste just like a very chocolatey brownie); perfect 10 LIFE cookie (an oatmeal cookie meets an energy bar! made with gluten-free oats, almonds, mini chocolate chips and sweetened with agave
b'day truffles); vanilla rainbow cake (mixed with vanilla infused milk, coated with white chocolate and rolled in rainbow cake crumbs - it's a birthday party in a bite); assorted cookie tins (one of each milk bar flavor: compost cookie, cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookie, blueberry & cream cookie, corn cookie, chocolate-chocolate cookie and confetti cookie); and XL cookie tins (a super sized gift box of two dozen assorted milk bar cookies that contains all of your favorites: compost cookies, cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookies, blueberry cookies, corn cookies, chocolate-chocolate cookies, and confetti cookies).

"There's always an incredible outpouring of goodwill from the the Amagansett community and that's what makes me smile the most!" added Jassem.
