On Wednesday, February 22nd our first Cravory Cookies storefront celebrated it’s 3rd birthday! We celebrated with $1 cookies, 30 different cookie flavors and best of all, our incredible San Diego community! At times, the line extended out the door and around the corner, which had us feeling extremely grateful.

Next, take the crumbly mixture and line into a pie pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 and when cooled, fill with your favorite pudding or whipped cream and top with even more cookie crumbs. Delicious! Create your own ice cream sandwiches. Perfect for any party or hot summer day, ice cream sandwiches are a satisfying handheld treat that children and adults alike enjoy.

It has been said that the chocolate chip cookie is an American classic. Most historians agree that Ruth Wakefield can be credited with inventing the chocolate chip cookie, which celebrated its 75th birthday in 2013. To truly appreciate the chocolate cookie, it is important to understand its beginnings and how we grew to love such a classic desert.
The Beginning The word cookie is of Dutch origin and the word keokje, meaning "little cake." Culinary historians believe that cookies were first used as test cakes using a small amount of cake better to test oven temperatures. Commonly consumed for snacking or as dessert, cookies are usually organized by how they are made. Preparations include drop, molded, pressed, refrigerated, bar, and rolled.
