Hi! My name is Linda. I am the sole owner and baker of Crafty Cookie LLC, a home based business in Phoenix, AZ operating under the Arizona Cottage Food Program.
My cookie journey began about 7 years ago when my oldest daughter asked me to pick up some custom cookies that she had ordered for her house warming party. When I saw those cookies, I was smitten! I knew at that moment that I had to learn how to make decorated sugar cookies. I started googling, reading and researching. Then one day - it was like the stars were aligned - I discovered that the same business who made my daughter's housewarming cookies also taught classes.
So what began as a hobby in my retirement has evolved into a small business of which I am truly passionate. I love everything cookies: cookie cutters (I confess that I might have a cookie cutter addiction); designing; baking (except maybe not so much during the AZ hot summer months when my kitchen feels like the outdoors); and most of all, decorating. When I'm decorating, I'm at my happiest.
My vanilla sugar cookies can be described as soft, on the thicker side (3/8”) and delicious. If you normally don’t care for sugar cookies, I hope to permanently convert you.
Thank you for your interest and support of small businesses!
