Snickerdoodle Bakery
Mary Decker, proprietor
 


The freshest breads, pies, cookies and more! Because that freshness is hard to package and mail, you'll have to visit to experience our goodness. But in the interest of having a presence on the SNOW website, we’ll post some of our favorite, secret recipes for you to enjoy.

 

We’ll start with Bobby’s favorite – frosted sugar cookies. You remember Bobby, don’t you? He’s featured in Christmas Quilt Anthology in a story called “The Hungry Christmas Guest”. If you haven’t read his story, you can find it at the Wonderland bookstore.

At the bakery, we use large quantities of ingredients to make dozens and dozens of cookies. It’s sometimes hard,  like with the icing recipe, to remember the exact amounts, but it’ll turn out anyway. It’s that easy.
