Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives Served Daily

Goodie Girl

Shira was well on her way to starting a traditional cookie and treat business. Then a mom friend asked if she could create a gluten-free version of her fantastically popular chocolate chip cookie for her five-year-old daughter, who had Celiac's disease. Shira started experimenting with gluten-free flours. She "baked, burnt and tossed hundreds of hockey-pucks masquerading as cookies," until one day the recipe was nailed. Goodie Girl was reborn as a gluten-free bakery, offering up both classic and creative treats so tasty that even the gluten-tolerant go mad for Goodie Girl.
