New Flavors...New Possibilities!

Anyone who knows me knows that, at heart, I am and always will be, a Chocolate Girl.  So, when the incomparable Meghan Streit of Shindig Wedings & Events suggested expanding my business to include additional varieties of cookies for what she terms a "Cookie Bar" I jumped at the chance to develop some new recipes!

Several months ago, just when the holiday sugar rush was coming to an end, I stocked up on some baking goodies (you should have seen the look on the grocery store cashier's face when she saw what was on the belt!) and set to work to develop 5-7 new varieties of cookies.  Two days in the kitchen and untold pounds of chocolate later, I had recipes ready for taste-testing.  15 kind ~ and fabulously honest ~ friends graciously tested all nine recipes.  Some even enlisted spouses and children! And now...
One Creative Cookie proudly debuts nine new varieties of cookies!

 Espresso ~ Triple Chocolate ~ Midnight ~ Triple Chip ~ Toffee Pecan Chaos
Key Lime White Chocolate ~ Molassas ~ Snickerdoodle ~ Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut

Modern Classics

About that bride and groom who wanted a cookie bar in lieu of a cake...Chelsea and Evan were married on May 12th!  I provided over 300 cookies for their guests to enjoy and in record time, not a crumb was left.  I can't wait to see the photographs from the wedding and I promise to share!  In the meantime, you can be dreaming of the occasion for which *you* might like to have a cookie bar!

In case you missed the photos of the Cookie Bar Meghan & I collaborated on in the fall (I did the library stamp edible image cookies in the middle of the table), follow this link: Cramer Photo - Annie + Walt.
~~ Finally, a huge Thank You! to Jen Maton of If So Inklined Calligraphy & Illustration for the beautiful tags for the cookies!  Her work is simply stunning!  And it's not just for weddings...she has some beautiful gift ideas, too! ~~
