A story about gifting and sending snacks
When I was head pastry chef at San Francisco's Tartine Bakery, I traded holidays with family for holidays baking treats for others.
Each year, we made thousands of artisan cookies, cakes, and croissants. I wanted my family to share in this occasion so I began to send cookies across the globe.
My list of recipients grew every holiday season. I introduced the treats to more people through holiday markets, local purveyors, and online. This allowed me to perfect the recipes and packaging for the most enjoyment.
I'm now thrilled to welcome you to this annual tradition.
Why these cookies?
Shortbread-style cookies are the perfect items to send as gifts. They bake until crisp and age beautifully. Often, the texture and flavor improves over time.
When paired with crunchy caramelized candy and crisp crackers, these treats are among my favorite baking expressions.
How to snack
Cookies are treats for all ages. Not too sweet, and on the cusp of savory. They are small but not precious. An endlessly snackable story of flour, fat, and spice.
Snack before a meal, after a meal, or curled up on the couch. Pair with a stiff drink, a warm drink, or a digestive drink. Share with friends and family. Or don't share at all. No matter the occasion you will not be disappointed.
