  10. Hi Stacey-

    We picked up a package of peanut butter cookies at Pic’s on a whim. The cookies were absolutely delicious! Since baking is a hobby of my own, I’m always sceptical about premade baked goods, but the cookies were so good! You’ve definitely made a fan and it is so awesome knowing a little more about the person behind the baking.

    My son has chosen a bag of chocolate chip cookies that made from you.

    We hope your marriage is as beautiful as these cookies. 😊
    All the best for 2021!
