Cathe Pearson, owner of Red Tin Homemade Cookies, freshly bakes homemade dessert disks in an array of flavors and ships them the same day in her signature red tins. Buyers can bite into freshly baked sweet and tangy almond-butter-cranberry or traditional chocolate-chip cookies as classic as Humphrey Bogart in a Red Flyer wagon. Fire up taste buds with milk-chocolate Mexicali cookies stuffed with chocolate chips, cinnamon, and spicy jalapeño peppers or create custom cookies with a choice of dough and up to two ingredients, such as pumpkin seeds, peanut-butter chips, and raisins. Buyers can choose gluten-free options or additional custom cookie ingredients for an additional charge.
Red Tin Homemade Cookies
As a teacher, Cathe Pearson is always asked to attend many social functions, from schoolwide potlucks to team-building outings. Instead of bringing the usual potato salad, veggie tray, or flame-roasted book reports, she started bringing batches of her handcrafted cookies. She soon realized that as soon as she broke open her signature red tins, people were already clamoring for more. That's when she got the idea to start baking professionally.
Pearson bakes up a blend of classic and original cookies, such as oatmeal raisin, jalapeño-infused milk-chocolate Mexicali, almond-butter cranberry, and peanut butter. Customers can also design their own cookies, choosing from four basic doughs—chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal, and sugar—and up to four adornments from a list that includes shredded coconut, white-chocolate chips, and locally grown nuts. To ensure that customers get the freshest batch possible, she delivers cookies in red tins the day they're baked and cooks with no preservatives or cryogenic agents.
