September 2016 Cookie of The Month: Black & Gold

The Black and Gold cookie is our signature cookie.  It's the cookie we started Top Shelf Cookies with.  For those that don't know, I am a LONG time Boston Bruins season ticket holder.  I would bring cookies to my pregame hangout The Fours and it became a routine.  In the summer of 2010, I developed a recipe using a really cool black cocoa and made a dark, chewy cookie with peanut butter chips.  We called it the Black & Gold.  I brought this cookie every game to The Fours.  The superstition grew.  I remember when the Fours facebook page had a post asking if I was bringing the cookies for a much needed win. In the summer of 2011, I...

Cookie of The Month July 2016: Midnight Delight

  This month's cookie is delicious and is one of the main reasons I wanted to have a cookie of the month club, because it's fun to share the newest recipes first!   Midnight Delight is the newest addition to Top Shelf Cookies' menu.  It is a pecan, oatmeal chocolate chip cookie! Just over a year ago, we announced our partnership with the Midnight Riders, which is the supporters group for the New England Revolution.  The Midnight Riders tailgates, easily one of the best meals you will get!  Not a lot of hamburgers and hot dogs to be found on these grills.  Tons of fancy marinades and meats and all kinds of neat things to be found in the parking...

One Boston Day

    I grew up in New Hampshire.  When I was very little, my parents took me down a family gathering in Quincy.  I remember from the back seat seeing the Boston skyline and falling immediately into head over heels love.  Nothing where I lived looked like that.  I became obsessed.  My mom would take me down for trips the museums and the aquarium and I would count down the days till we would see that skyline again. Many years ago, I moved here as a young adult.  I have lived in and around the city for nearly 18 years now.  I met my best friend in the balcony at the FleetCenter soon after moving down here.  My closest friends...

Happy Birthday Hazel

So I’m clever enough to write neat cookie recipes, but I’m not clever enough to name them.  True story, I’ve only come up with two names on my menu –the Black & Gold and Uncle Joe’s Eggnog. So, when it came to naming my cookies – I did what any new small business owner would do – I hired a professional.  Wait – no – I went to my network and asked one of my former coworkers who did corporate communications. Felicia was one of the bright spots of my corporate life.  We worked together for nearly ten years.  She’s an incredibly talented wordsmith and someone I am proud to call a friend.  Added bonus – she was pregnant and...
