Fresh-Baked Cookies

Is there anything more tempting, satisfying, or sublime than a chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven? Baking a cookie requires only 10 minutes cooking time, ideal for a “baked-to-order” option whether you’re using pre-made cookie dough from Maines or your own from-scratch signature recipe. Capitalize on the shareable trend with a cookie plate that will meet the demand for diners craving just a little touch of post-meal sweetness. Buttery, chewy, and warm chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate comfort food, oozing with sentiment. Simple additions like walnuts or dried cherries make housemade cookies more refined, and serving with a glass of melted ice cream helps create a unique and nostalgic “milk & cookies” presentation. Serve dessert with our quality blends of coffee or cappuccino to further enhance your menu and increase profitability.
