Two Larchmont women have turned Grandma’s cookie recipe into a small business with a big following.
Heather Mahland & Kyle de Lasa are stocking gourmet markets in the area with "You&Me Cookies," a hefty six-pack of "healthy chocolate chip cookies" named the "Jumble," whose primary ingredient* is Grape Nuts cereal. The cookies are baked in a USDA-certified kitchen in Larchmont.
Mahland and de Lasa say they had a great recipe, the desire to do something local and because deLasa’s son has a nut allergy, which many children have, the idea came to life.
Stores stocking You&Me include The Meateria, Stanz and Aroma in Larchmont, Cherry Lawn and Standing Room Only in Scarsdale, and Crisfields and Wish in Rye. A pack of cookies is $5 (but $6 in Scarsdale and Connecticut, dontcha know…)
We can’t wait to try one!
