Celebrate the small at One Girl Cookies! This week we joined a small field trip with small people (kindergarten) to a small shop to taste small cookies made by a small business. The day couldn't have been better. Head baker, Dave, welcomed us into his warm and pretty shop in Brooklyn for a tour of the shopfront and kitchen.
One Girl Cookies specializes in petite cookies--perfect for a tea party. But they also make divine cakes, cupcakes and other baked goods. We've been know to elbow our way to the front of a line when these treats are served at birthday bashes. While, we've long been a fan of the sweets, we didn't know the shop where are these delights are made.
A lucky volunteer gig as a chaperone led me to OGC. The kids and adults marveled at the whoopie pies being lovingly wrapped. Nearby a baking pro whipped up green frosting for cupcakes and year another chef expertly applied decor to a cake. Even if you can't get a backstage tour, this spot is a can't miss with kids. Grab a seat at the counter or table, enjoy a treat and slow down for a minute or two to really talk to your kids.
Settings such as One Girl Cookies remind us of the reasons we got into this parenting gig in the first place--to celebrate the small. And if you've got a tween who's interested in cooking check out this class
