Quiet and unassuming from the outside, originally Mimi’s Cookie Bar, Dessert’D Organic Bake Shop is a must stop if in Mammoth Lakes. Baking cookies started as a hobby but once the owner Mimi moved to Mammoth Lakes she was looking for a job that she’d enjoy. So, why not follow her passion? This is when the idea of a bakery was born.
Walking through the door it immediately feels homey and inviting. It’s comforting like your grandma’s kitchen with a younger, hipper vibe. If you get a chance to meet Mimi it’ll be evident who created the atmosphere. She’s an ex-competitive snowboarder with a passion for baking!
How Did This Pro Snowboarder Become A Baker?
The short of it is essentially, her family ate really healthy as a kid. Only on special occasions were they allowed deserts. When the time came, Mimi was eager to provide the labor of love to create sweet treats. Over the years her passion for baking has grown. Like anyone with true passion for what they do, she continues to hone her craft.
What To Expect At Dessert’D Organic Bake Shop
Regular items can always be found, but every time you step into the store you’ll find something new! Below are some of the staple recipes you’ll want to try:
- Yia Yia (pronounced Ya Ya) cookie which means grandma in Greek…this recipe specifically comes from her grandma. It is the classic Kourambiethes Greek cookie made with organic ingredients.
- Best Friend Ever which contains peanut butter, chocolate chips, and sea salt. This is one of Mimi’s personal favorites.
- Dad’s Coconut Chocolate Chip a soft chewy chocolate chip with HUGE coconut flakes in it. It really works and it’s so good!
Like All Great Ideas Necessity Is The Best Form Of Invention
Mimi was faced with a problem. In her recipes she began to notice she had lots of almond waste. Not a big fan of waste, she came up with a plan. Instead of throwing those out they figured out a way to use the excess. Her husband Delaney Council, came to the rescue! Use the ingredient to make Florentines. The result, a newest best seller was born…Caramel Florentines. In our opinion this is the most decadent dessert you’ll ever have.
