The Cookie of the Stars

If you haven’t tried our famous Sand Tart Cookies (a.k.a. The Cookie of the Stars), you’re missing out! Loved by locals and celebrities alike, these soft molasses cookies are topped with mouth-watering meringue and dusted to perfection with cinnamon sugar. Our Sand Tarts were already a local Dayton favorite, but when homegrown celebrity Allison Janney introduced them to The West Wing cast—well, the rest is history.

Not local? No worries, we ship Sand Tart Cookies by the dozen!
