Brown Butter Blondies
Brown Butter Blondies
"Brown butter, bittersweet & milk chocolate bars. Like a chocolate cookie in a bar. LOVE these damn things. The brown butter takes on a salted caramel nutty flavor and makes the inside almost chewy. The contrast of the milk and dark chocolate also make them not too sweet. I like to eat these right out of the oven or right out of the freezer."
Carmelized Coconut Macaroon
Carmelized Coconut Macaroon
"Our most popular cookie, we make a rich caramel and fold in eggs and 2 types of coconut (large flake and macaroon coconut). They have a crunchy outsie and chewy inside."
Coconut Cream Pie
Coconut Cream Pie
"My fiancé is a coconut lover and I always try and up my game with our coconut items. This one is filled with our vanilla bean pastry cream and pieces of our carmelized coconut macaroons. It turns into quite the ridiculous filling. I love the way the little versions have the perfect ratio of fillimg, whipped cream & crust."
Gingersnap

"My favorite cookie at the moment, made with leaf lard, molasses, spices, and rolled in sanding sugar. It is a little spicy, has some crunch from the sugar and a little chewy."
