We are baking like crazy at the Bakery today. There are bascially 12 days left for us to bake the cookies, package them up in holiday gift boxes and ship them around the US. Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Toffee Chocolate Chip, Super Chocolate Chunk, (Notice a pattern here with the chocolate?) Ok we also have Snickerdoodle, Old-Fashioned Vanilla, Cranberry white chocolate and gingerbread boys. I'm tired, but the really busy week is ahead. More coffee.

Black & Gold Pittsburgh Gingerbread

Ok, so our Pittsburgh Steelers need some fan support today. Anyone who lives in Pittsburgh will understand.

Christmas Cookie Baking

Gingerbread Cookies with Personality!
Each of our decorators here at the bakery has her own flair with decorating. During the holiday season, it's fun to get a little creative. Gingerbread boys seem to look great no matter the outfit! And they all taste wonderful. We'll be adding them to our assorted gift boxes this year as the featured cookie of the month in December is Gingerbread.

Fresh Baked gingerbread boys

Mom's Christmas Sugar Cookies

These wonderful melt-in-your mouth sugar cookies are "Mom's Sugar Cookies". We bake the cookies from scratch using unbleached flour, butter, pure vanilla, eggs and sugar. After hand-rolling and cutting with scalloped cookie cutters, we bake and then frost with our own homemade buttercream frosting and finish with festive sprinkles. They are old-fashioned and wonderful. Simple, yes, but they'll remind you of cookies baked at home.

We are starting to plan our Christmas Holiday baking. This year we've decided to continue Gingerbread boys, they were so popular last year! This year we've added Christmas trees and Holiday gift packages in colors of red, green and white. I'm sure we'll be adding a couple others, maybe a stocking? Love this time of year prior to all the craziness which starts after Thanksgiving. Right now, it's mostly planning and stocking up, making boxes, ordering gorgeous ribbons.

Food Show October 2009

We displayed and sampled our cookies at the Women's & Food Expo held this weekend in Monroeville Pa. For two days, we shared a booth with Basket Affair from Pittsburgh with their gorgeous gourmet gift baskets . We're tired from all the prepartions but we had a good time meeting new customers and other vendors at the show. I had time to walk around and talk to some of the local vendors, so many interesting stories to tell about small businesses out there. Everyone is trying to build and grow their own business, but also most seem enthusiastic about supporting others in their endeavors. Thanks to everyone who attended the show and stopped by to see us, we hope you found some new ideas for gift giving this Holiday season!

Chocolate & Spice

Ginger Chocolate Chunk
A wonderful soft molasses & dark chocolate cookie

When I tell people this is my new favorite cookie, Ginger Chocolate Chunk, some are not so sure. Ginger and Chocolate? But it really does work, the chocolate is premium quality and dark. The ginger and cinnamon add just the right spice and the molasses and butter and brown sugar combine for just the right sweetness. And to make the cookie a favorite, it's crunchy on the edges and soft in the middle. I can easily enjoy one of these instead of lunch . It's our featured cookie of the month in September, will go away in October and November, but we will be returning it for the Holidays in December.

Fall Decorated Acorns and Leaves

It's still supposed to hit 80 degrees today here in Western Pennsylvania, but last night was in the 50's so we know that Fall is coming soon. I've been waiting to bring out the fall colors of ribbons, I really love the natural cremes, chocolate brownies, deep reds, wine colors and warm yellow and oranges. We've decorated some new fall leaves and acorns. They should be available later this week online to order for cookie favors and in our assorted cookie gifts.

Cookie Favors Monograms

Monogram Cookies in a Rainbow of colors

These simple but elegant monogram cookies were done for a bridal shower in an array of rainbow colors. I like the simplicity of these cookies, with cello favor bag and a pretty bow, they are perfect for a bridal shower or wedding. Our sugar cookies are baked with all natural ingredients and hand-rolled, then hand decorated. Every batch is custom made to order.

Chocolate Chip Cookies fresh from the oven

Chocolate Chip Cookies are the hardest cookie to bake, I think. Maybe the weather is to blame, one too large egg, not quite enough flour, overbeating the batter, the butter not at the right temperature, etc. But today I got it right! Slightly crispy on the outside, chocolate melting everywhere, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture, soft in the middle, well, enough said. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm bragging, but cookie bakers will understand. The cookie was worth the calories today!

Fresh Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies

I just baked a batch of Super Chocolate Chunk cookies for a custom order today and couldn't resist taking a photo. I gave up my lunch today for one of these.

Red, White & Blue Cookies

I just finished baking a batch of our new cookie which we will feature the month of July, our RED, WHITE & BLUE Cookie. We start with our chocolate chip recipe batter, instead of chocolate chips, we add dried blueberries, cranberries and Callebaut White Chocolate Chunks. The sweetness of the white chocolate and the slightly tart flavor of the cranberries and blueberries create an absolutely wonderful cookie! I had to pack up the remaining cookies quickly to avoid eating more than one.
