BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — There’s a new cure for your case of the late-night munchies.

Bake Sale, a cookie-delivery service out of Bedford-Stuyvesant, will bring freshly-baked sweets and cold milk to your doorstep starting this Thursday.

The new concept from local cafe and bakery Brooklyn Kolache Co. on DeKalb Avenue combines the team’s drive to grow the business and give back to the area, owner Autumn Stanford said.

“We were talking about how we have all of these great cookie recipes, and we just figured no one was doing great, night-munchie food in the neighborhood,” she said.

“The idea is if you’re out late, or have a birthday party, are watching the Grammys or Super Bowl and you need to order cookies, you can have them delivered.”

Those hit by a late-night snack attack can select from a variety of baked goods such as gluten-free monster cookies with oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate and butterscotch chips and M&Ms, snickerdoodles, or ube crinkles made with purple yam and covered in powdered sugar.

Some mixes are family recipes, Stanford said, and prices start at $2.50 for individual cookies. Discounts are applied the more you order, with a dozen costing $21.

Customers can also choose to wash down the sweets with a pint of milk from Battenkill Valley Creamery.

Bake Sale will launch Thursday through on-demand service Postmates and Brooklyn Kolache’s Grubhub page, and all cookies will be baked at the cafe right before delivery, Stanford said.

Postmates will deliver anywhere in the city with delivery fees determined on location, while GrubHub limits service to a 2-mile radius of the Brooklyn shop, she added.

The owners will also donate 10 percent of all sale proceeds to local non-profit Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger.

“We picked the name ‘Bake Sale’ because we wanted a fundraising component to it,” Stanford said.

“After the election, when people started hearing about all these programs being potentially scrapped, we decided we wanted to do something hyper-local for our charity.

“I’m just really excited about continuing to provide more jobs within the neighborhood but also being able to create a system that’s able to give back to people in the neighborhood.”

The owners hope to eventually add more savory items to the menu, like pepperoni rolls, and to expand their days of operation.

Following the March 2 launch, Bake Sale will be open for business Thursdays and Sundays from 6 to 11:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
