Hi! I'm Emily. I've been a cookie baker since I was first allowed to use the kitchen as a kid. I love to make cookies! About 12 years ago I started making decorated cookies and occasionally selling them at craft shows, etc. Now, I'm in the planning and research phase of starting a "gourmet/artisan cookie business". I find that blogging helps to keep me on task and focused on my goals. I plan to share everything I learn as I go through this process and hopefully connect with other successful bakers!
