Find out what makes our seasonal fall cookie flavors so special

What are the flavors of fall? Pumpkin, apples, cinnamon, and ginger! 

The local Sebastopol Gravenstein apples are falling off the trees, and the apple presses are filling the air with that unmistakable fall aroma. Pumpkin everything fills the grocery shelves, while the smell of cinnamon wafts from local bakeries and coffee shops. Our noses are responsible for 80% of what we taste, and fall is smelling lovely! 

Our fall cookies positively burst with fresh, fall flavors that speak of home, hearth, and comfort, with pumpkin, apples, and spices. And because we source so many fresh ingredients locally, our cookies are that much better. 

Farm to table cookies from fresh, local ingredients!

Local, fresh, natural, organic, and farm to table aren’t just labels or buzzwords at COOKIE . . . take a bite! We use local ingredients whenever possible, for fresh, natural goodness, and to reduce the impact that shipping has on the planet.

COOKIE… take a bite! Wins Slow Food Award 

Slow Food "Snail of Approval" award

In fact, because we have contributed to the healing of the local food chain, we were recently awarded the Slow Food Snail Award! The mission of the Sonoma County local chapter of Slow Food, is to:

 “Strive to create change in the food system by connecting our community with the people, traditions, plants, animals, soils, and waters that produce our food.” Recipients have made a “significant contribution to improving the food system.” 

Local, Organic Flour

In our cookies we use locally-milled organic flour from Petaluma-based Central Milling because only the best flour will do for COOKIE . . . take a bite! cookies. 

Local, Organic Butter

The difference between a good cookie and a great cookie often comes down to the butter. We use organic Straus Family Creamery butter in our cookies. Like us, Straus is family owned and operated. They have been producing 100% certified organic dairy products since 1994. 

Fruit to Cookie

When we’re sourcing fruit for our cookies, we’re not ordering online from far-away fruit packers. We get deliveries from friends and neighbors right here in Sonoma county for our oranges, apples, plums, and red currants.
