This is what I should say: Kendra’s Cookies, founded 2008, is an artisanal sugar cookie company specializing in scratch-made, hand-decorated confections for any event. But that elevator pitch doesn’t really tell you who I am or why you should trust me to make cookies for your special event. So let’s try a different approach.
Who is Kendra?
I am a wife, a mother and an entrepreneur, and I’ve been cooking since I was old enough to see over the stove. Decorating cookies is my art, my passion and the fulfillment of a dream—literally. When my youngest daughter, Hannah, was just an infant, I dozed off one afternoon while rocking her to sleep. I dreamed I saw my kitchen, its counters covered in flour, dough and brightly-colored frosting. I was sitting at a desk amid it all, hunched over the laptop and designing a cookie website. I woke up a little confused, but excited, and founded Kendra’s Cookies that very day.
What's This About Cookies?
I hesitate to use the phrase “overnight success story,” but that’s very much how it felt. I launched Kendra’s Cookies in August of 2008 and within a year, I was working on orders for government agencies, a world-renowned shopping mall, a top-ranked business review website and a cast member of a popular Bravo TV reality series. It was thrilling—and overwhelming. My life became a never-ending cycle of: Mix. Roll. Cut. Bake. Cool. Decorate.
After three years, I began to feel shackled to the kitchen, so I went on hiatus. But, I never fully abandoned my love of decorating cookies. I continued to bake and decorate, and formed a non-profit where I donated my custom creations to local charities who needed custom-designed cookies for their fundraising events.
Now that life has settled down and my youngest is in school, my decorating hand is itching to give this another go. With the support of my family and friends, I’m excited to reopen and create the perfect cookie for you.

The cookies I ordered for my brother’s engagement party were awesome! They were so pretty we almost didn’t want to eat them! People loved them and commented on the design of the bride and groom cookies. They were perfect to give out as favors. Very memorable and I look forward to ordering from you again in the future.Sent on 09/03/2011
