In fact, I can’t stop myself from buying the magazine, even though I try to avoid bakeshops during my meals. I must admit, I love getting those boxes of cookies and brownies from Sallys every time.
I’m not the only one who finds their baking hobby taken up by Sally’s Baking Addiction. This cookbook is also popular among other baking enthusiasts. The book contains recipes for such yummy treats as sugar cookies, banana nut bread, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and pies.
The Sugar Cookie Recipe
One of my favorite recipes is the sugar cookie recipe. It is so delicious and goes great with the cinnamon and butter. I find it difficult to resist a slice. The next time I get that craving I just have to go to Sally’s and grab the box. It is almost impossible to resist the temptation.
The magazine has a variety of interesting recipes. They describe each one by using creative words like “iced,” “chocolate chip,” and “made-to-order.” Some of them are unusual but not totally out of the ordinary. I particularly like their cinnamon oatmeal raisin recipe. It tastes like an apple cinnamon roll.
Creamy Carrot Cake
I particularly like the “Creamy Carrot Cake” recipe. With hints of caramel and chocolate, this sweet bakeshop recipe is absolutely delicious. Bakeshops often put cream cheese on top of their cookies. I think Sallys takes that idea too far. I’m thinking of heading back to Sallys for that recipe next time I am in doubt.
I was very upset when I read the article about Sally’s Baking Addiction’s discontinuation of their “baked-to-order” cookie recipes. I love getting home from a hard day at work and having a huge box of cookies waiting for me. It doesn’t matter if they are “baked-to-order” or not. I will eat them now and then, but I will not get anymore “baked-to-order” cookies from Sally’s Baking Addiction. I was disappointed.
I believe the loss of their “baked-to-order” recipes was a big mistake on their part because it took away a very good customer service reason for their business. Customers like being able to order a certain way and sit down at the counter and have the food brought to them. When you take away that element of “order”, you are taking away the reason people come to you for food (and shopping) in the first place. What is the point of having a bakery if you are not going to be willing to cater to your customers’ tastes? If they aren’t going to be treated right and have a nice experience when they go into your store, how can you expect them to come back again?
They aren’t going to just move on to the next place that offers “baked-to-order” cookies. I believe the loss of Sally’s Baking Addiction’s “baked-to-order” recipes was a big mistake on their part and I blame them. If they had stuck to what they were known for, I am sure they would still be around today. So I am going to give them one more chance, just like they gave me, and I will make cookies just like they used to.
Sallys Baking Shops
I will start out this new venture with my original recipes. I know that they are delicious. I am sure they will be loved by the new customers who make their way to the bakery. But if you have tasted any of my cookie recipes before, you will immediately notice the difference. I don’t think they were made to be made again.
Once I got over my bad experiences with Sallys baking shops, I started to look for new places to buy my baked goods. I have found better places than I ever thought I would find. I have a few new recipes in my head, I need to get them out there before my customers get to them.
The new recipes that I am creating and baking are absolutely amazing. They are a cross between traditional recipes and my latest creations and they turn out to be delicious as well as they looked during the making process. The ovens I am using also make the cookies flaky and easy to cut. I can’t wait until my next bake sale and am sure that my customers will like what I am bringing to the market.
