Collette Divitto – My Journey Is Just Beginning

The Creation of The Amazing Cookie

The story behind the Amazing Cookie – I went to Vermont with my family to ski. I decided skiing was fun when I was younger but it was getting harder and I was just not that into it to work harder at it. I decided to stay back with my friend and go to the market to get ingredients to make cookies. I was super excited to experiment in making all different kinds. I did this a lot and my family were my critiques. I was doing this since I was like 15 years old. And my family was always very honest.  Trust me I threw out a lot of experiments.  But this one weekend was magical.   I made up recipes and baked 5 different cookies. 

When my family came home I had them out waiting to for them to try. They made faces with the first 3. Then my choc chip cinn was next. They tried that and went CRAZY. They started saying Collette These are so good. The best cookie we ever had. They are amazing and you should write down what you did to make them. So I did.  As years went by I would bring them to family get togethers, football tailgate games, parties and friends houses. Everyone had the same reaction. They would say Collette these are amazing. Many people even said this is the best cookie I have ever had. So I decided to call it The Amazing Cookie. And family, friends, people we knew would call the house and ask me to make them platters of the Amazing Cookie for their parties or events. This was in 2011 and so many people still order The Amazing Cookie over and over.
