Boulton & Watt's cast-iron cookie is served with strawberry milk

It's spring, and that means it's time for fun, outdoor frolicking and general merrymaking.

East Village hotspot Boulton & Watt (5 Ave. A, has decided to celebrate the season by turning their popular cast-iron cookie into a spring cast-iron cookie, with M&Ms in pastel hues subbing in for the usual chocolate chunks and strawberry milk taking over from plain milk.

The giant cookie is playful and fun, and the strawberry milk made us feel quite nostalgic indeed. Get both for $10.

Happy spring!

"It's about bringing you back to your childhood," said David Rotter, chef and partner at Boulton & Watt, which opened in 2013. The texture of the cookie is what makes it one of the most popular dishes at the restaurant, he said. The inside retains its brownie-like consistency.

The strawberry milk is made with real strawberries, Rotter said. He blends whole milk with strawberries and a touch of sugar.

The spring cast-iron cookie will be on the menu starting Easter Sunday and continuing until supplies run out. (When M&M stops making the pastel candies.)
