Summerhouse Baking

summerhouse.gifI'm an avid baker, but that by no means stands in the way of Jon and my devoted quest to find excellent baked treats (and coffee…) out in the world. Our latest find – Summerhouse Baking – is a must try for cookie lovers.

Made from scratch using quality ingredients (including products from local, family-owned farms and mills), pastry chef Lauren Ferrone’s cookie collection is classic with a decadent twist. Despite our chocoholic tendencies and Ferrone’s chocolate-based stunners, our favorite is the Oatmeal Coconut Cranberry, a buttery, vibrant cookie loaded with enough toasted oat goodness to nearly justify that it might do for breakfast.
Summerhouse cookies can be ordered online in elegantly appointed gift boxes and bags (including party favors and cookie-of-the month gifts); they also create party trays and gift baskets. Summerhouse ships anywhere (we love them for using biodegradable packing peanuts), and offers next day hand delivery in the Boston area. Starting May 19-20, you can find Summerhouse Baking’s cookies – as well as a killer collection of tarts, tortes, pies, breakfast treats, and other confections – at the South End Open Market (Harrison Avenue, Boston).

UPDATE (6/24/09): Sadly, Summerhouse Baking is no longer in business.
