If my brief mention of a cookie factory in yesterday’s chocolate chip cookies and cream ice cream post caught your attention, well, you’re in luck. Because today I want to introduce you to The Christie Cookie company, a Nashville-based purveyor of delicious cookies and other tasty gifts for 30 years.
Now, I’m not one to regularly endorse commercially made cookies, so keep your fake-tasting and chemical-laden pirate cookies away from me. I will always choose homemade if given the option. However, I have to make an exception for Christie Cookie. Their cookies are about as homemade-tasting as they get, made with no preservatives and quality ingredients through and through. Not to mention they are about as local as it gets (to me at least, the factory is literally within walking distance of my house).
My favorite just might be the white chocolate macadamia nut. It’s not just good, it’s eat-five-cookies-in-one-sitting-good. Locally made and incredibly delicious? Now that’s a cookie I can totally get behind.
And since I know most of you aren’t lucky enough to be within walking distance of this magical place, I’ve got a very special giveaway today brought to you by The Christie Cookie company. One lucky L&OO reader will win a $100 gift certificate for ChristieCookies.com. Share the love and send some delicious cookie tins to friends and family, or have it shipped to your secret PO box and hoard it all for yourself (I don’t blame you).

I would love cookies, especially now since it is far too hot to turn on the oven!
until very recently, my favorite cookie was the perfectly baked tiny, chewy and crispy around the sides chocolate chip cookie. HOWEVER – the discovery of the chocolate peanut butter chip pretzel cookie with sea salt has now rocked my world.

I love a simple beautiful buttery chocolate chip cookie the most, but I’ll eat nearly any cookie I can get my hands on. I used to live in Nashville, but I somehow missed out on these.
