About Cookie Crumbs
Why Did We Start Cookie Crumbs?
Like so many good things, the idea of Cookie Crumbs was baked from a not-so-secret mix of catalysts. First and foremost has to be a love of cookies and an even greater love of the smiles on faces of family and friends that a new batch of freshly made cookies brings. Waffle cookies were a staple in our house for many years and those friends could never find them anywhere else. And perhaps most important, as we and so many others have sought to find ways to eat healthier without giving up what we love, truly wholesome cookies must be shared!
What makes Cookie Crumbs cookies so wholesome?
We believe in better ingredients, the kind that we are proud to feed our own families. Using things like Alberta’s own unbleached flour that is not treated with chemical agents (benzoyl peroxide and chlorine gas, among others) to speed the aging process. Things like organic cane sugar that is so much healthier than the refined type that removes sugar’s natural nutrients, such as calcium, iron and magnesium while adding harmful chemicals. Butter…. real butter, not margarine or some hydrogenated oil. And even available coconut oil that increases healthy cholesterol while it transforms “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterol and therein promotes heart health.
What exactly are waffle cookies and waffle pucks?
It’s not a waffle. It’s not a cookie. It's a waffle cookie. It is a hybrid of waffle and shortbread that makes our cookies unique. What’s more, all of our flavors are pure and natural. A great treat for your family or as a gift or reward for friends and co-workers…..people who you care about and for whom you would only want the very best! And then there is the waffle puck... a unique dessert made just for us hockey-mad Canadians. Imagine your own personal pie made with a scrumptious shortbread crust and your choice of wonderful fillings.
Can you do custom orders, including specialty ingredients?
We can customize to exactly what you like…..no butter, no flour? Coconut oil rather than butter? No problem! We can fix that. Would only like maple sugar? We can do that too. Give us a call (see Contact Us page) and we would be only too happy to make up something super special.
Are our cookie batters made fresh and local?
Of course! The best way to make sure cookies taste like they are fresh, straight from your own oven is…well…make them fresh and straight from ours. In small batches. By hand. In Edmonton. Soft and sweet and delicious. If you want them on Tuesday we will make the batter fresh and bake them just in time to get them to you.
Is there a physical location where we can buy Cookie Crumbs?
We don’t (yet) have a brick and mortar store, but look for us on Saturdays at the Old Strathcona Farmers' Market (https://facebook.com/oldstrathconafarmersmarket/) starting in May 2017 where a broad selection of our favourite products will be available. The Market is located at 10310 83 Avenue in the Old Strathcona district of Edmonton and is open year-round.
