I am an unabashed cookie eating mama! I adore cookies of almost any flavor. Sorry can’t eat chocolate….long story. However, if it is a cookie of the non-cocoa variety, I will eat it. There are specific qualities though that I look for in a good cookie. It must be made with pure ingredients….that means butter(no Crisco), pure vanilla (no imitations), eggs, etc. It must be both crunchy and chewy. Nuts are fine, coconut divine, but not overpowering.
Okay, so I should call myself the cookie diva!
Anyways, a brand new bakery just opened up right around the corner from my house. It is called the Mountain Girl Bakery(love the name)! You can find them and like them on Facebook but seriously, you need to go in and taste/drool politely the many delicious offerings.
Little Man and I went in this afternoon after his first race this morning. I am so proud and we had the best sprinkle cookie and oatmeal cookie with coconut that I have ever eaten. Seriously, this cookie monster was beside herself. You are seriously missing out if you do not get your happy self in there and order anything. I had my eye on the glazed shortbread and the rum butterscotch shortbread. More running is in order if I am to keep eating the deliciousness.
The owner is a charming woman who lived in Ireland for a time so the irish soda bread and guiness bread offerings are sure to tempt the stoutest of diet devotees to break with their regimen.
There are cupcakes too. She uses no artificial anything. Period.
She believes that the flavors speak for themselves and that no chemicals should get in the way of a good treat. I totally agree.
So in this time of “government shenanigans” and throughout the holidays and even 365 a year, you cannot go wrong with a swing through Cody, Wyoming to the special Mountain Girl Bakery.
By the way, she has coffee too.
So dear readers, this is Outdoor Mama, until next time.
