PRODUCT: Isabella’s Cookie Company

Jennifer Palmer began baking as a young girl and “always thrived on the happiness brought to others by my cookies.” What a lovely thought!

Turning avocation into career, in 2001 she founded Isabella’s Cookie Company, so that everyone could enjoy her fresh baked, all natural cookie creations.

The company is based in Redondo Beach, California, and the cookies are carried by many local retailers (here’s the store locator).

You can order online and send a gift box of luscious cookies to friends, family, hosts, campers and others deserving of sweet, buttery goodness. Don’t want butter? There are seven vegan varieties. And if you need a themed cookie, there are hand-decorated cookies in every shape imaginable (we love the billy goats). The entire line is certified kosher by KOF-K.

The only problem is what to order. We tried two delicious flavors (Limey and Muffy—see below), but everything sounds soooo good. For starters are the the flavors you’d anticipate (chocolate [including chipotle chocolate], peanut butter, chocolate chip-PB chip and oatmeal with both chocolate-covered and regular raisins).

But then, the surprises: Isabella’s creates flavor combinations that you won’t find elsewhere. A sampling:

  • Apple Fritter, an oatmeal cookie with apples, white chocolate chips and a hint of cinnamon, also available in Cran-Apple
  • B-Nana, a cookie version of the banana split, with banana flavor, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and dried strawberries
  • BOB, a chewy oatmeal cookie with butterscotch chips and dried blueberries
  • Chocolate Haze, dark chocolate and crunchy hazelnuts
  • Dark Mocha Monster, a soft brown sugar cookie with dark chocolate chunks and roasted espresso beans
  • Fluffy, a Fluffernutter in a cookie—banana cookie with peanut butter chips and marshmallows
  • Limey, a graham cracker base with white chocolate chips and a lime-vanilla drizzle
  • Maui Wowie, macadamia nuts, pineapple, coconut and white chocolate chunks
  • Muffy, a blueberry muffin-inspired cookie with dried blueberries, milk chocolate-covered blueberries and white chocolate chips.
  • Orange Dream Cream, an orange and vanilla cookie packed with white chocolate chips
  • Paddy, green mint chips added to a classic chocolate chip cookie—one of our favorite recipes

    There’s even a chocolate chip cookie with half the sugar! And a purchase of a bag of Milk + Bookies Chocolate Chip Cookie sends books to children in need.

    Nut Allergies?

    While the bakery does use nuts in some of the cookies, they follow a strict allergen control program: a chemical cleanup upon the completion of using the nuts, and no co-mingling of ingredients.
     
    TOO MANY COOKIES?

    You don’t have to eat them all at once: You can freeze them. Here’s how to store cookies.
