Anyway, now she lives in L.A., and I'm up here in British Columbia on a little island. She was asking about the bakery I work at, so this post is for her.
Here is Pender Island Bakery. My home away from home.
Last night I had to re-stock the cookie case after a busy weekend. There are so many tourists here on the islands during the on-season, it gets CRAZY!
So, here's what I was up to last night.
Lemon poppyseed cookies with lemon vanilla filling.
Plus, I also made a full sheet pan each of butter tarts and cranberry pecan tarts, AND two different types of pie filling! Oh yeah! Not bad for a 6 1/2 hour shift!
I don't really have any great shots of inside, but you get the idea. I really like working here because I have the freedom to try new things all the time! I'm always doing something different, and it really makes coming to work so much easier! I also love that i'm using the certificates I went to school for. Unfortunately I tend to taste test quite a few items, but if that's the down side, then it can't be that bad!
If any of these things look like something you want a recipe for, let me know. I'll be sharing the everything cookie recipe once it's perfected.
What is your favorite bakery item?
