Cookies weren’t part of the plan for Independent Baking Co. We were going to keep it simple: just a few varieties of hearth-baked bread and viennoiserie. One fateful day Corley asked her father “What kind of cookies is the bakery going to have, Daddy?” “Well,” Daddy replied, “if the bakery has cookies, I’m sure they’ll be really good.”
“IF!!?? What kind of bakery doesn’t have cookies?”
Unable to come up with any other satisfactory answer to Corley’s koan, we have cookies: chocolate chip and oatmeal-raisin everyday, plus seasonal favorites like Christmas sugar cookies and heart-shaped linzer cookies for St. Valentine’s Day. And always two or three types of biscotti, delicious dipped in your Counter Culture latte.
We’ll pass your thanks along to Corley.
