Cookie Flavors!

If you think these sound good, wait till you taste them! Some of them have names, others we're still working on names for. Feel free to throw your ideas for names into the ring.

Current Flavors:

-Chai Oatmeal Cookies: This is the cookie that started it all! Teal and I were watching a show on the food network where they were making cookies, and decided we wanted some. We only had ingredients for Oatmeal cookies, but thought that would be too boring, so we rummaged around the pantry, found some Chai Tea, and the rest is history.

-Chai Sugar Cookies, with a Chai Glaze: Don't worry, not every cookie has Chai Tea in it, but we couldn't resist using it again since it worked so well the first time. This cookie is sugar, and spice, and everything nice, for real.

-The 39th Ave. Cookie: We have to give it up to Trader Joe's for this cookie, the inspiration was all them, and the surrounding area of course. This cookie is a bit wacky (as it should be). It is like a Chocolate Chip Cookie, if you were to take out the chocolate chips, replace them with Mini Peanut Butter Cups (Thanks Trader Joe's for that awesome creation!), then add some ground up oatmeal and a dash of cinnamon. Yeah, it's pretty much the best cookie ever... and also why we had to give it it's own name, cause that description is a mouth full 

-The Dude: Fit for The Dude himself, we've created a White Russian Tea Cookie. A Russian Tea Cookie, with cream added in, and a coffee/Kahlua glaze, made in popable bite size pieces, because lets face it, what dude want to be seen munching on a Tea Cake?

-Malted Snicker-doodle: This cookie was another happy accident. We wanted to make a snicker-doodle, but the flavor ideas we had, had already been done by others, and we feel the need to be original (can you tell?) So looking around the kitchen we saw a box of malted milk balls on the top of the microwave, and it was like a lightbulb went off over both our heads at the same time. We crushed the balls (hehe), added them to the cookie, and another Cookie Pedaler creation was born.

-Curry Macaroons Dipped in Chocolate: Curry and Coconut-delish! Coconut and Chocolate-yum! But Curry, Coconut, and Chocolate together? It's a flavor explosion of almost epic proportions. The sweet curry and the chocolate are wonderful compliments to each other, if you like Thai food, and have a sweet tooth, this cookie is for you!

-The Pascal: The most perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie you've ever had. So what's so special about a Chocolate Chip Cookie? Our cookie has triple chocolate chunks in them, White, Milk, and Dark, and it's almost as big as your face (k, not that huge, but it's a big cookie) We named the cookie after Ana Pascal, a character in the movie Stranger Then Fiction. She wants to make the world a better place, and does it through baking. She's our Hero, and we want to follow in her footsteps.

Flavors in The Works

-Green Tea Shortbread with Almond Slivers and raspberry glaze
-Peanut butter cookie with pretzel, dipped in chocolate 
-Cafe Au Lait Cookie
-Wine Soaked Dried Fruit Bar (The Suburban House Wife)

And for summer, we'll have ice cream sandwiches too...if we can figure out a way to deliver them!

Who We Are, And What We're Doing

Well, if you're reading this, there's a good chance you know who we are, and what we do, but if not, let me introduce us. 

We are the Cookie Pedalers, we make creative cookies, and deliver them my bike in SE Portland (Oregon). Right now we're still in the planning phase. We have our name, our blog, a MySpace, and a Facebook. We have about 5 solid cookie recipes, and over a dozen other ideas that we have yet to try out.

So what's stopping us? Who else? The Man. Cookie Pedalers is just my roommate and I. All we want to do is make a little money while the economy sucks, by doing something we like, and maybe employing some of our unemployed friends. The Problem is we can't get a licensed kitchen to bake in. We just need someone to give us a chance, someone who really needed help when they were starting out. We can't really pay anyone for use of the kitchen, but we will advertise our butts off for anyone who can lend us a kitchen. We have pretty much everything else planned out, but we can't get anything really off the ground till we have a kitchen...So if you know anyone...


There will be two of us blogging from time to time. I'm Molly, and Teal is my my roommate/ Business Partner in Crime. My Blog will always be in Purple, and I hope you enjoy them!

Coming up next on our Blog Spot: Cookie Flavors, let us know what sounds good, what sounds gross, or tell us a cookie flavor you'd like to see on the Cookie Pedalers Menu.
