Cookie Chick brings happiness through cookies

  • Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Faith Keppler from Mt. Pleasant is the owner of the Cookie Chick. PROVIDED

You can’t eat a cookie and not smile, says Faith Keppler, founder, owner and baker at The Cookie Chick.
“I am always on the hunt for a good cookie,” she says.
Keppler started her business in Mt. Pleasant last year. She makes gourmet cookies in small batches from quality ingredients – real butter, fresh eggs – and sells them by custom order and at farmer’s markets around the Lowcountry.
In fact, her first foray into retail sales was at the Summerville Farmer’s Market last year.
“I love that place. The people were so nice and they made me feel so welcome,” she said.
Now she’s gearing up for her first appearance at the Flowertown Festival.
As of press time, she hadn’t decided what types of cookies she would bring, but she said there would probably be two traditional varieties and three that experiment a little more with flavor.
“I do a lot of testing. My husband can attest to that,” she said.
Keppler spent seven years as a pastry chef in New Jersey. In that job, she spent a lot of time making cakes for high-end weddings. It wasn’t an experience she wanted to replicate here.
Instead, she rented a commercial kitchen for her baking and struck out on her own.
“I’ve never been happier than working for myself,” she said.
More information about Keppler’s business is on her website, at www.thecookiechickshop.com.
