One of those people is Michael Pinckney of Pinckney Cookie Cafe. Micheal worked his tail off in the corporate world for many years when he realized his signature chocolate chip cookie might just be more interesting to him. He made the leap and started his cookie business, selling cookies online and in many Whole Foods (if you happen to be in the Seattle area). We chatted last week and he told me about the business. He's expanding it to carts, selling cookies along with milk, coffee, and cocoa on the streets of Seattle and beyond (more on that here). He asked if he could send me some cookies and, if I was a fan, would I write about them. I admitted I don't usually do this but, he's a friend and I do love a good cookie so here we are.
These are store bought cookies you could unwrap, put on a platter, and pass off as your own any day (I promise I wont tell). If you live in the Seattle area, check your local Whole Foods but if you're not in the area, you can buy some here. I think you'll love 'em as much as I do.
