Somehow this cookie released my inner 5 year old. It was like playing dress up or dolls I cookie form. I never really played dolls like my friends did but I would spend hours “decorating” the house my grandfather and grandmother built for my Barbie’s and arrange the tiny furniture and set up all the fake food my mom and I made from clay. I would organize the clothes and create perfect little dioramas. And when we finished all this@my friends would say “ok! Now let’s play!” And I would look at them in total incomprehension and say with perfect sincerity “I thought that’s what we were doing?!?” How about y’all? Did you make up life stories and scenarios for your dolls/toys? Or did you spend all your time setting things up like me??? 🤍 share below!!!⬇️

Shall we keep going with the grad set? Yes. Because I love all of the pieces. This one celebrated the dissertation of the graduate complete with her title, cup of chai tea, glasses, and a cozy blanket for while she worked. iMO this is the kind of detail that makes a graduation worth celebrating. Cookiers… don’t forget to ask your clients for the details that make them who they are! Clients… share with your cookie artist the special things that can take your set from “ just another grad cookie” to the centerpiece of your celebration. 🤍🎓

Sorry not sorry y’all are going to have to wait and get this graduation set in pieces… I fell in love with it and had to take a picture of so many of the individual cookies. For a wonderful human graduating with her PhD in Counseling/Psychology from TWU. I hope this brought you joy as we gathered the threads that make up your story to celebrate you both as a student, but also maybe more importantly as a person. Congrats!

You got a peek at my new favorite owl earlier this week… but heres a few fun facts on where it was headed… this set was created for the Owl Club in McKinney, Texas. According to what I could find, the Owl Club is the oldest originally federated and continuously operating women’s club in Texas founded in 1893 with an emphasis on study and ongoing education for its members at a time when women rarely went on to pursue higher education. What a history! Honored for my cookies to be able to attend such an amazing group!

Let the holiday baking begin ❄️ I have a new favorite decorating sugar that doesn’t dissolve like powder sugar or stay super grainy like granulated sugar. It’s called “snow sugar” and that’s EXACTLY what it looks like. Used by culinary professionals to dust and top baked goods for forever, I never thought to use it on cookies till my super smart intern shared some with me (it’s one of the ‘secrets’ behind her out of this world melt in your mouth snowball cookies!). I asked if I could share this with y’all and she said “of course”! So, have you ever used or heard of snow sugar? Tell me how you use it below! ⬇️

A little for your weekend. Speaking of which, Allen friends… have y’all been to the new and seen their floral section?!? First time ever that I’ve seen Anemones looking that big and healthy outside a wedding bouquet or high end florists shop. Just beautiful! If you’re looking for floral stems and sprays to put together a DIY bouquet for your showers or even their premade bouquets… I’m impressed! (But our cookies taste better… so there’s that…)

Ever have a moment where you desperately feel the need to drop everything no matter what falls apart and just go somewhere away from it all? I think the pressure valve of travel is a universal thing whether you grew up thinking that meant walking to the mailbox to get outside or if you got to do some serious globetrotting. I love to travel and my husband and I have found frugal ways to do so even on a teacher salary. But my earliest travel happened between the pages of books from my local library. So no matter whether your budget for “getaways” is ginormous or (more likely for most of us) sitting in the background waiting for a time when there are no medical bills or emergency house repairs or a better economy, you can still explore new places and meet fascinating people in the pages of a good book. 🍁📖 so here’s my contribution to the

Starting the weekend off with beachy vibes is fine by me! Sneak peak of a set that I fell in love with this week. It was truly hard to let these walk out the door! Major thanks to for her recent seafoam design technique share using an airbrush for the white flood! I finally nailed the watery look I’ve been chasing since I started cookies. Began with her seafoam and then dray brushed with two metallic lusters and topped with confectioners glaze in the wave “valleys” and I can honestly say for the first time in 6 years I’m fully satisfied with the result. Are y’all interested in a video showcasing the dust and glaze steps? Head to Maya’s account for the seafoam tutorial!

Hello everyone! It’s been a minute and I can’t thank y’all enough for your Patience with me as I navigated balancing single owner business life with family life. But I’m happy to say I’m back and ready to take your orders through December 1st. I will have a slightly lower availability threshold than this past Spring, however so get your orders in early! Thank you again for being the best client base a small business could ask for. And for my cookie friends on here, here’s a reminder that it’s ok to step back for a season to care for yourself and your family. Your people will still be here for you when you return and you will be healthier and more creative for it!

Still catching up posting. It’s been a full summer. This summer we had a lot more than expected on our plates as a family… (made a trip out of state for medical specialist kiddo appointments with very excellent results, had a change in insurance and the “joy” of switching ALL of our providers, made a roughly 3100 mile trip east to reconnect with family that we hadn’t seen in person(some for almost 6 years), found out I might have cancer (I don’t) then waited for the results for nearly a month after the testing system crashed, waded through hail damage claims after our roof got totaled and our solar panels we just got installed needed to be removed and reinstalled, and all manner of other small family and health things 😂). So there’s your update if you’ve been wondering where I’ve been. ❤️ We are all good and healthy and happy and looking forward to school starting so we can hopefully rest a minute… kidding… just me. ;) Seriously though, thank you for your patience and continued interest these past few months as I’ve navigated all of the things. So grateful for all the ways God cared for us through everything and the grace and caring of our community whether in person or here on the many platforms where I’m blessed to have YOU :) Have a great week and I should be back to “normal” in the next few weeks. :)

Owning and managing a small business can feel overwhelming at the best of times. The very thing you started as a simple way to earn a side income or free you up to spend more time with your people and your passions can sometimes instead seem as though it’s consuming your life. And while there is SO MUCH information out there about growing your business or how to use the next big social media trend gain more followers or expand your reach, sometimes the very classes we take to help us manage and simplify our businesses seem to only add things to our plate.  
But what if Bigger doesn’t always mean Better? What if you just want to stay (successfully) small?
 Small business doesn’t have to mean small profit margins. But it does require a much more thoughtful approach to scale “up” without scaling “out”.
Come hang out with me and let’s learn to filter business information together to fit your goals and lifestyle.  Small business success on a small scale is not only possible, but may be the most practical and achievable goal you ever set! Register today at the link in my profile on IG or at www.cookiebetter.com

“Oh Jupiters!”

My name is Katy Kauffman and I am the wife of a teacher and mom to two awesome and very active kiddos. My background is in Dietetics and Nutrition with a side of Culinary Arts. I love art, design, and a good story. Especially the story of how this little home bakery got its name, which I know is an unusual one. My signature cookie recipe is the “family recipe” that my grandmother modified from an old spritz cookie recipe. She turned it into a rolled dough that she would cut into shapes and sprinkle with sanding sugar and mail to each family member at every holiday known to mankind. Even when we went to college, all the grands knew a package near a holiday meant grandmas cookies. She passed away about two years ago now, just before I started thinking about opening a home bakery. So I wanted to honor her with the name of my business. I considered several phrases, but it came down to really wanting the name to make anyone who knew her instantly think of her. “Oh Jupiters!” was her “dangit!” Phrase. And quite frankly I can’t think of many times that I cooked or baked with her that it didn’t fly at least once! ;) But more than that it’s a reminder to me not only of her but also of that “what-have-I-done” moment that happens to me every time I create a work of edible art. In fact, from talking to other artists, its a pretty common feeling. That moment when you look at your work and go “This looks awful! It’s irreparably messed up! I’m never going to be able to fix this” But if you just keep going, adding another layer of icing or a few sprinkles, inevitably it all comes right in the end. She was always telling me not to worry so much. That everything would work it and not to be so hard on myself. So the name is a tribute to her. On many levels. It's my hope that the name and the story behind it will leave you with a smile just like it does for me and remind us all that life is too short to take too seriously.
