I ordered the cream cheese chocolate chip cookies and OMG! My entire family loved them. So soft and delicious...I could tell they were made with love and care, a true trait of Southern cooking. They also came packaged in a beautiful wrapped box...would be a perfect gift! I'll definitely be back; especially for my holiday orders!

My very favorite pie of all time and this one didn't disappoint me. It was SO very good. Rich, moist and creamy center with a flaky perfection pie shell.

The chocolate pie is perfect! It's one of those desserts you wind up eating the whole thing in one sitting. So good.


The many different cookies I have eaten was the bomb. Betty Crocker couldn't touch them!
