Independence Day Cookies

Decorated cookies have been very popular since we opened, so we're glad another colorful holiday is upon us!  We'll have 4" decorated flag cookies ans 3" decorated stars at the bakery all this week.  Please visit us!  Michael's cookie Jar is located at 5330 Weslayan Street (corner of Weslayan & Bissonnet, behind Petco).

Opening Day Photos

Opening day went very well!  Thanks to all who came out to see (and taste) the new bakery.  I have a few photos here, but more are coming.  It seems the most popular items were the decorated cookies and our Americana cookies.  The chocolate chunk, toffee pecan and snickerdoodle were especially popular.

Michael's Cookie Jar bakery opens today!

It's been almost a year since I first saw this new location that we are set to open today.  I am very excited to open the doors and welcome cookie lovers from all over Houston. The magic of cookies is that everyone has a favorite and everyone has a story.  I hope that those stories and many delicious cookies are shared at Michael's Cookie Jar!

Love the Palmier

One of the items we'll offer at Michael's Cookie Jar (remember, our bakery opens June 22) is the Palmier.  This French delicacy is one of the reasons I love pastry! Almost all pastry is some combination of butter, sugar, eggs and flour.  The Palmier has no eggs, but it has those other three ingredients, plus water and a little salt.  And such simple ingredients are transformed into one of the most satisfying pastries I know: light, crunchy and sweet!  When you visit our bakery, I encourage you to ask for a sample!
