“The measuring and mixing always smoothed out her thinking process – nothing was as calming as creaming butter – and when the kitchen was warm from the oven overheating and the smell of baking chocolate, she took final stock of where she’d been and where she was going. Everything was fine.” -Jennifer Cruise, Maybe This Time
She Kneads Dough Holiday Chocolate Toffee Matzo, the ultimate Holiday Hostess Gift. Available at our Motor Avenue store through the holidays.
Art and creativity come in many different forms. Nancy Gurney, founder of She Kneads Dough, has taken baking to a new dimension with her exotic toffee and custom cookie designs. A wife, mother, and woman with impeccable style, she left a life as a bankruptcy attorney to marry the love of her life, after meeting him through mutual friends at a party during a trip to New York. After becoming a mother, she wanted to do something that allowed her to express her artistic instincts and passion, while still giving her the time she wanted to devote to raising her daughter. Nancy started whipping up batches of cookies from scratch and the artist began to paint.
Most creative types are bursting with ideas but need someone with a business mind to hone and harness their creations into an entity. That’s where Nancy’s business partner and friend David came in for the perfect collaboration. They share a sensibility which is golden, a true rarity when you find that person that really gets what you are about and looking to achieve. David’s expertise in marketing, photography and graphic design was the icing on the cookie when it came to branding the business and setting the wheels in motion for the image that Nancy worked so hard to create.
Part of what makes She Kneads Dough so unique is the fact that every single piece Nancy creates is one of a kind. Her installations at parties and events are larger than life and have everyone clamoring around the display to pick their own original piece of edible art. As if her cookies weren’t divine enough, her Chocolate Toffee Matzo is one of my favorite treats and hostess gifts year round. Sourcing the finest chocolate, butter and vanilla from around the world, these are an epicurean’s dream. Ever had toffee topped with crystallized citrus?!
If you are looking for a fabulous favor for a shower, or a larger than life installation for a wedding or Bat Mitzvah, or any other special occasion, She Kneads Dough is the perfect choice for custom goodies, made just for you.
