Almond Wave: Our take on Almond Roca. Since the Larson family restaurant was in a coastal community, it adopted a seaside name. Brown sugar shortbread is baked, then topped with melted milk chocolate & thinly sliced almonds.
Mom’s Awesome Chocolate Chip:Todd’s mother didn't bake cookies often, but when she did…she did them right!She discovered this recipe at her restaurant in Shelton, WA in the 80’s. It soon became a customer and family favorite. It’s an “awesome” chocolate chip cookie with a hint of ginger and cinnamon in the dough, then rolled in powdered sugar before baking to give a unique texture and appearance
Monster:Made with Oatmeal, PB, Chocolate Chips, & M-Ms, this recipe originated with the librarian at North Beach High School in the late 70’s. It became a Larson family favorite and was sold in the family’s restaurants. It’s great for people with flour allergies.
Hello Dolly Bar:Heidi grew up during the 70’s making these treats in Longview, WA. She found the recipe in a local church cookbook, and these became a family favorite especially during the holidays. It’s butter, graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut and sweetened condensed milk layered and baked.
Thelma’s Chocolate Chip: This recipe comes from Thelma in Lynden, WA. She was an 80+ years young die-hard Mariners fan who works in the stand where we get our fresh strawberries every June. She gave us a sample; we loved it and got her permission to sell it in The Grace Café. It’s a cross between a sugar cookie and shortbread with chocolate chips.
Lily Bar: This is a treasure from one of those “grocery store check out line” booklets all about cookies. It was worth the $3.00 we paid! It has an oatmeal crunch bottom, raspberry jam, chocolate chips, and the remaining oatmeal crunch sprinkled on top.
Big Pink Sugar Cookies:Somewhere in this business, these cookies have been affectionately named Big Pink Cookies and are preferred that way…no option on the frosting color. This is by far THE best sugar cookie. The frosting is a bonus.
Nanaimo Bars:This is the most decadent of treats and an instant endorphin rush. The recipe is actually printed on the tin of Bird’s Custard powder that is found primarily in England and Canada. The bar is layered with a crust of chocolate/graham crackers/walnuts/butter, then buttery custard filling, and semi-sweet chocolate spread on top.
Rice Krispy Treats: Self-Explanatory, except as everything at The Grace Café, they are BIG!
"The Gorp": Oatmeal, our own natural peanut butter, chocolate chips, craisins...and it's VEGAN! A great treat for the trail.
