Cookie Love Bake Shop

One thing that I truly love about our area is that there seems to always be great businesses popping up, related to food. From food trucks, Randy's Pickles, meats from Saucisson, and other products showing up at farmers markets and from the Cleveland Culinary Launch and Kitchen...there's always something to discover and taste.

Today, I want to tell you about Cookie Love Bake Shop. It is a home-based bakery, located in Hudson, Ohio that specializes in fresh-baked gourmet cookies. Serving Summit, Portage, and Cuyahoga counties, they are delivering. Which is a great way to send a treat to someone, or to have baked goods just magically appear at your door!

The owner contacted me by email, to see if I'd be interested in sampling her cookies. "R" would have killed me if I had turned down this offer, so just a few days later, a box of a dozen cookies arrived.
The box included Chocolate Chip, Fudge Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, and Oatmeal Raisin.
All four kinds were very soft, and two had just a sprinkle of sea salt on them (which I loved!).

"R" and I were in agreement that the traditional Chocolate Chip were our favorite. This is their signature cookie. The Fudge Chocolate Chip wasn't too far behind. A rich, dark cookie with two types of chips, it definitely reminded me of a brownie. The Oatmeal cookie was the softest of the four. I'm not a huge raisin fan, so the golden raisins weren't really my thing, but the cookie itself had hints of delicious cinnamon and spices in it. The Peanut Butter cookie had three types of chips, which was cool. It was packed with peanut butter flavor, but ended up being my least favorite of the four. The texture was a tad gritty, and it was a little too sweet for me to want to finish it.

I think a true sign of how these cookies were is the fact that the entire dozen was gone just 24 hours later. I think we were even down to 3 within 12 hours. I live with a cookie monster, and he happily indulged in these.

If you need cookies for an upcoming party, to send as a gift, or you're just craving something home-made and sweet that you don't have to bake yourself, check out Cookie Love Bake Shop. They have a great website, and are pretty active on social media.

All cookies are $8.95 for a dozen, and there is a three dozen minimum order. Small delivery fee does apply. You can place orders by phone now, but online ordering is coming soon.
