This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
In recent weeks, I've heard more than one of my colleagues talk about a place called My Dough Girl. I've been told that it produces some of the best cookies you've ever tasted. I was quite curious so I decided to try it out for myself, and I was not disappointed!
My Dough Girl, located on Third West in Salt Lake City, produces a rotating menu of delectable cookies all named after women. There's "Audrey," an almond dough with almonds, cranberries and white chocolate, and "Margo," a chocolate cinnamon dough with a milk chocolate mint center rolled in cinnamon sugar. "Vivianna," one of the most popular, is made with orange dough, mangos and dark chocolate. What a delightful mix!
Owner Tami Cromar said opening My Dough Girl is a bold endeavor to satisfy her creative mind. She worked as an architectural designer for 15 years before she decided to become a stay-at-home mom. When she determined to return to the work force, she realized she felt stifled by the idea of returning to her former profession.
Baking was always something she had been interested in. And chocolate is a personal passion. Tami decided to take her passion for chocolate and translate it into making gourmet cookies. Originally, she intended only to sell her cookies as gourmet doughs customers could take home and bake themselves, but she realized it would be wise to provide samples for customers to taste. The finished cookies have been so popular that now half her business is finished cookies and half is selling gourmet doughs.
Every month My Dough Girl features a dough available only for that month. In June it was "Silly Lily," a lemon sugar cookie with lemon heads. July featured "Liberty," which had cherries, macadamias, blueberries and came in a patriotic gift box. This month it's "Anna," a chocolate and fresh banana dough with chocolate-covered raisins.
Tami says clients are so happy with her products that they keep spreading the word. After my experience, I'm happy to do so as well.
For Zions Bank, I'm Fred Ball. I'm speaking on business.
