Creative Cookies is the toothsome aftermath of a mother-and-daughter team’s fruitless search for locally-made, sugar-coated gifts. Each 12-inch platter of approximately 30 cookies springs from a primal slab of fresh secret-recipe sugar cookie dough that is rolled out, taught French, and shaped into a plethora of cunning cutouts. Smooth frosting blankets each bite-sized morsel, topped off with quirky thematic squirts of technicolor icing. Cookie-consumers can choose from an array of tastebud-approved platters, such as Sailboats, Insects, and Party Hats, or brainstorm a unique permutation of Baby Feet and Go Team cookies perfect for fueling infant touch-football games. Give Pops much-deserved props with 113 square inches of sugar-kissed saws and hammers on the Tool Time tray, or spirit away a platter of whimsical Clownfish bites for desk-side snacking.
In 1997, mother-and-daughter duo Ronda and Cherrie Myers searched Slidell in vain for a gift idea that was both eye-catching and delicious. They decided to take matters and some cookie dough into their own hands, launching Creative Cookies in the kitchen of Ronda's home. Word of their fresh, colorfully decorated cookies spread, and Ronda and her father eventually constructed a cookie shop on the side of her home. The business continued to grow and found a new home in a retail shopping center in 2002.
The Myers and their staff sweeten celebrations with treats such as cakes, cookie platters, or 12-, 16-, or 18-inch cookie cakes designed to be dunked in oaken barrels of milk. Kids and adults can also go to the shop and decorate cookies using the staff's design suggestions or their own inspirations.
