4 Tips for Zero Waste Baking from COOKIE… Take a Bite!

homemade gourmet cookies from COOKIE... Take a Bite!

How We Reduce Food Waste One Cookie at a Time!

It is estimated that 80 billion pounds of food go to waste in the U.S. every year. At COOKIE… Take a Bite! we aim to produce as little waste as possible while baking our gourmet cookies. With zero-waste baking recipes and practices, we are able to help protect our planet by reducing our food waste, while also serving our community delectable cookies.

What is Zero Waste Baking?

Zero waste baking is a more eco-friendly and sustainable approach to creating delicious baked goods. With thoughtful ingredient sourcing and creative reuse and repurposing, our cookie bakery is able to limit our waste production significantly!

Zero Waste Cookie Baking Tips

Here are some of our favorite ways we reduce our food waste while baking our gourmet cookies at our Santa Rosa bakery!

1. Buy Local Ingredients

We are proud to work with many local Sonoma County businesses. When you shop locally, you know you are getting the freshest ingredients directly from the vendor. These ingredients are often picked, harvested, or produced the day before — or even the same morning — that we use them in our cookie recipes. 

Straus Family Creamery is family-owned-and-operated in Petaluma and has been producing 100% certified organic dairy products since 1994. We infuse their premium butter combined with mint from our garden to make our Mint Chocolate Kiss Cookie.

The organic flour we use in our cookies is produced by Central Milling out of Petaluma, as well. They have provided artisan-milled grain and flour to local bakers for over 150 years. Our Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie would not be the same crispy-edged, gooey-centered treat it is without their premium flour.

2. Repurpose Leftovers

We rarely have leftovers at COOKIE… Take a Bite! But when we find ourselves with byproducts we always make the most of them. In fact, some of our bakery’s most famous flavors are made possible by using byproducts. 

We use the juice of our locally grown lemons to make the glaze for our award-winning Lemon Moon Cookies.

We make vanilla-infused salt out of scrapped bean pods for our Harvest Fair Best of Show Tequila Lime Twist Cookies.

3. Bake With Seasonal Ingredients

Our cookie flavors are always evolving based on which special ingredients are in season at the time. By purchasing local ingredients that are in season, we end up with less food waste because they are fresh and readily available. They didn’t have to travel here from out of the area, and will therefore have a longer shelf life and can be purchased in more recipe-appropriate quantities. 

Our new summertime favorite Gravenstein Apple Streusel Cookie features the famous Gravenstein apples from our neighbors in Sebastopol.

Another seasonal favorite is our Raspberry Chocolate Splash Cookie, featuring our homemade raspberry puree glaze made with seasonal berries.

4. Bake Cookies from Scratch

Baking our cookies from scratch means we have much less packaging waste to dispose of. By making our own icing, dough, and crafting the specialty ingredients that make our cookies so decadent, we are able to greatly reduce the amount of waste our bakery produces. 

Don’t miss out on our Plum Jam Thumbprint Cookies made with our own homemade jam or our new Grapefruit & Campari Swirl Cookie are topped with a drizzle of our house-made Campari and grapefruit glaze. You won’t find these handmade creations anywhere other than COOKIE…Take a Bite!

The Ultimate Sonoma County Wine and Cookie Pairing Guide

wine and cookie pairing

Sample the Flavors of Sonoma County with These Perfect Cookie and Wine Pairings 

When you find cookies and wine that really complement each other, it elevates both, creating the ultimate tasting experience. Here is your ultimate dessert guide to pairing our favorite cookie flavors from COOKIE… take a bite! with some of Sonoma County’s most popular style wines!

Tips for Pairing Cookies and Wine

A good general rule of thumb when pairing wine and cookies is: the darker the dessert, the darker the wine! In general, if you are looking to pair a delicate sugar cookie with the perfect wine, a crisp white will complement it best. Similarly, a dark chocolate cookie will pair well with a rich dark red wine. 

What Cookie Pairs Best With a Rosé?

A rosé is a refreshing spin on a drier style of wine. The primary flavors you taste in a rosé will be similar to red fruits, light notes of citrus and melon, and, of course, florals.

zest tea cookie

At COOKIE… take a bite! we suggest pairing your bottle of rosé with our rich and Zesty Tea Cookie. The hints of fresh-picked lemons and pink peppercorns create the perfect sweet and savory melody to combine with a local rosé.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, Sonoma 2017 Casteñada Rosé

What Cookies Pair Best With a White Wine?

Different styles of white wine include Chardonnay, Savion Blanc, Pinot Grigio, and many more. Depending on the style of white wine, the flavors can vary from crisp and citrusy to medium-bodied and creamy. 

Light white wines will usually feature more citrus fruits and melon flavors. Our signature Lemon Moon cookies deliver a delicately tangy flavor from fresh-picked lemons, combined with a creamy sweetness perfect for pairing with a light, crisp white wine.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, Sonoma 2018 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay 

chai shortbread cookie

A medium style white will have a more buttery cream or nutty undertone, making our Chia Shortbread cookie a perfect pairing. The sweet buttery flavor combined with the warm spices accent the deep oak flavors found in a lot of richer white wines.

Our Wine Pick: A Sonoma County Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc

What Cookie Pairs Best With a Red Wine?

Red wines may have the largest selection of styles, and flavor palettes, but that’s what makes them so perfect for dessert pairings! Reds can vary in color from bright crimson, deep purples, pale ruby hues, and everything in between. This also grants red wines a very wide variety of flavors, ranging from fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices, to more earthy characteristics. 

sonoma county trekker cookie

Our award-winning Sonoma Trekker cookie has the perfect combinations of crunch and tangy flavor. This makes it an ideal pairing with a zippy red wine.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, 2018 Sta. Rita Hills, “The James” Pinot Noir

double chocolate cherry cookie

Our luscious Chocolate Cherry Drop cookie has a delicate chocolate center with hints of sweet cherries making it a great treat to pair with a Sonoma Pinot Noir.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, 2018 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

ginger honey snap cookie

With a warm touch of rich spices, our Ginger Honey Snap cookie brings out the gorgeous notes and texture of many red wines.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, 2018 PFV Estate Pinot Noir

Enjoy a Variety with Our Wine Pairing Cookie Tin

5 Fabulous Wine and Cookie Pairings

Pair Your Cookies with More than Just Milk!

Sonoma County has it all: rolling hills, the beach nearby, and bottles and bottles of fine wine. The wines produced in this region are some of the best in the world — and so are our cookies! Similar to wine, COOKIE…Take a Bite! cookies are full-flavored and made only with premium, locally-sourced ingredients. 

You might already know that cookies pair well with milk, ice cream, and coffee…but have you ever considered pairing them with wine? A wine and cookie pairing is perfect for parties, holiday gatherings, or even a sweet date night.

Read on to discover five of our fabulous wine and cookie pairing suggestions:

Zesty Tea Cookie + Rosé

Rosé wines are super refreshing on hot summer days. Each brand and bottle is different, with flavors ranging from floral and fruity to crisp and zesty. This is why our Zesty Tea Cookie is the perfect pairing for rosé wine. Made with fresh lemons and pink peppercorns, this cookie is both sweet and savory, blending perfectly with the bright and vibrant flavors of rosé.

Citrus Burst Cookies + Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the top selling wines both within Sonoma County and across the globe! With almost 16,000 acres grown in this county alone, including chardonnay in your pairing party is a must. The flavors of this popular white wine range from rich and buttery (oaked) to fruity and fresh (unoaked). An unoaked bottle of Chardonnay pairs well with our Citrus Burst Cookie — a delicate, tangy, and refreshing cookie made with fresh local citrus. 

Chai Shortbread Square + Rich White Wines

Our Chai Shortbread Square cookie is the perfect pairing for rich white wines, like an oaked Chardonnay. The Chai Shortbread Square is a sweet and spicy combination. Made with warm spices, decadent organic butter, and other delicious, locally-sourced ingredients, you are going to melt right into this luscious combination.

Chocolate Cherry Bomb + Pinot Noir

If you are a fan of red wines, you will go crazy for our variety of chocolate cookie flavors, including Chocolate Cherry Bomb. This decadent chocolate cookie contains freshly dried cherries, making it perfect for Pinot Noir lovers. At the forefront of many Pinot Noir tasting profiles is black & red cherries, plums, and raspberries. It is no wonder a glass of Pinot pairs so well with a Chocolate Cherry Bomb!

Ginger Honey Snap + Full Body Reds

Our Ginger Honey Snap cookies are the ideal complement to full bodied red wines, like Zinfandels and Cabernets. With touches of honey, molasses, fresh ginger and fresh oranges this outstanding cookie flavor will refresh and lighten your palate after sipping on a rich red wine.

Plan a Cookie and Wine Pairing Party with Cookie…Take a Bite! Flavors

Just like a glass of Sonoma County wine, it is hard to have just one of our cookies. The perfect solution to this dilemma is having a wine and cookie pairing party! With different custom cookie tray options available, your guests will be able to sample an array of flavors with different wines. 

COOKIE…Take a Bite! makes wine and cookie pairing fun and surprising experience. These are not your average chocolate chip cookies from the grocery store. You are going to love our selection of creative, all-natural cookies that are hand-crafted with love. Ready for a pairing party? You supply the wine — we’ll drop off the cookies!
