“Cookie Cousins”: A Delicious Exploration of Wedding Desserts 

Delving into a World of Unique Desserts and Sweet Sensations 

While cookies hold a special place in our hearts and on our dessert tables, our culinary curiosity has led us to create an extended family of treats we lovingly call our “Cookie Cousins.” These delightful variations share the comforting, homemade essence of cookies but venture into exciting new territories of taste and texture. Let’s introduce you to each of these irresistible cousins, showing you that there’s so much more to enjoy beyond just cookies. 

Whoopie Pies: A Sweet Embrace 

Whoopie pies are like the hug you didn’t know you needed. Imagine two soft, cake-like cookies encasing a fluffy, often sweetly flavored filling. They bridge the gap between cake and cookie, offering a mouthful of joy with every bite. Our whoopie pies come in classic and inventive flavors, ensuring a surprise and delight for every palate. 

Our current favorites: Swiss Almond, Nutella, and Carrot Cake. 

Baby Fruit Pies: Miniature Delights 

Our baby fruit pies capture the essence of homemade comfort in a bite-sized form. Each miniature pie is covered with a buttery streusel topping and filled to the brim with fresh, zesty fruit fillings. From the tangy sweetness of apricot to the rich, deep flavors of blueberry, these tiny treasures are perfect for when you want a touch of indulgence. 

Our current favorites: Blackberry, Cherry, and Peach. 

Brownies and Blondies: The Dynamic Duo 

Rich, fudgy brownies and buttery, caramel-kissed blondies make up this irresistible pair. Whether you’re in the mood for the deep, chocolaty embrace of a brownie or the sweet, vanilla-infused charm of a blondie, these cousins offer the best of both worlds. Perfectly moist and packed with flavor, they’re a testament to the simple joy of baked goods. 

Our current favorites: Chocolate Caramel Pecan, Toasted Coconut, and Butterscotch.

They’re the perfect addition to any dessert table, offering elegance and variety in one small package.

Decorated with sprinkles, drizzles, chips, or nuts, they’re as beautiful as they are delicious.
