Marcoux Baking Company
While you may not recognize our name from the NYSE--yet--but, there is one house in northern New Hampshire that recognizes this small cookie-baking operation's name on sight.
During Christmas 2005, the (then four) bakers decided to give their Grandpa "the gift that keeps on giving". No, not the jelly of the month club, silly-- cookies!!! Recipes are carefully chosen, ingredients purchased, and a flurry of baking activity ensues once a month in our little test kitchen yielding batches of love-filled (and sometimes otherwise filled!) cookies for Grandpa (and Grandma when he chooses to share). This past Christmas of 2006, the bakers decided it was such fun to do and their Grandpa enjoyed his cookies so much that they would give the gift all over again. As January brought their East coast grandparents here, they decided to "go live" with the first batch of cookies in 2007! Below are a few snapshots from the M & M cookie bakefest.
Two of the six bakers were present for the January cookie making. They were full of energy (and some butter!)
After watching hours (no, literally, I mean hours) of the Food Network, CB has decided that the only good egg is a slightly beaten one. I believe N is in her cookie making/cheerleading ensemble.
Things were starting to get cooking and everyone was happy when the recipe finally called for the M & Ms. I think a few of them might have even made it into the dough.
12 months of cookies...good stuff, picking out your favorite recipes...very tasty, snuggling with the chefs while the cookies bake...priceless!
