It’s an inspiring mother daughter story – how one mom’s successful cookie company became her daughter’s entrepreneurial vision. When Rachel Galant was a child, she and her sister Stacy were eager testers of every cookie recipe their mother baked. It all started in their home kitchen but Jackie’s Cookie Company eventually grew to be a nationally recognized and much loved baking company. Heralded by Family Circle Magazine as “the world’s best chocolate chip cookies” and Good Housekeeping Magazine “one of the nation’s 10 best cookie entrepreneurs” Rachel’s mother Jackie built an incredibly successful business in the 80’s in Washington DC and New York City. Jackie and her family eventually moved to LA but her cookies and her passion for baking were never far away.
For Rachel, unlocking the secret recipes from the vault (so to speak – they are treasures after all) was an opportunity to bring Jackie’s Cookie Company back to life, but this time on the West coast. Today you can buy Jackie’s famous cookies online or at one of their four LA locations: Century City Mall, Hollywood & Highland, The Village at Topanga and their new bakery at 12109 Santa Monica Blvd in Santa Monica.
And not to be outdone by Family Circle, MomAngeles would like to provide our own quote “Jackie’s Cookie Connection makes the best cookies we have ever tasted. We can’t keep enough of them in the house because they get devoured quickly and guests disappear with them tucked in their bags.” You can order online and read the whole history of Jackie’s Cookie Connection on the website www.JackiesCookieConnection.com.
