Le Gourmet Baking is a neighborhood gem offering a delightful experience every time you walk through the door.
Becky inherited her mother’s gift for exceptional baked goods, her grandmother’s style of delicious southern cooking and a grandfather’s entrepreneurial spirit for running a business. This unique combination of talents has helped to both inspire and encourage her since she was a little girl. After graduating from SMU, getting married and starting a family, Becky discovered an adventurous way to use those creative influences. In early 2000, Becky fell in love with a shortbread recipe that satisfied her desire to produce the ideal cookie. Becky’s yearning for “a softer more cake-like shortbread with a crumbly texture and, yet, still soft in the middle” has been instrumental in fulfilling her goal of offering a cookie that tastes as good as it looks. She describes her shortbreads as cookies that have personality.
Filling orders today includes corporate clients like Neiman Marcus where she has sold over 15,000 personalized shortbread cookies since 2015. They currently offer 7 different designs online which can be ordered at neimanmarcus.com. Becky is now baking shortbread cookies for corporate events, weddings, birthdays, schools and non-profits. Cookie decorating classes, offered at the bakery or parties at your home, have become a hit with all ages.
The Le Gourmet team, which includes Mackenzie Johnson, Shelby Morriss, and Sid Gray are wowing customers with their endless selection of creatively designed shortbread cookies. The convenience of a neighborhood location gives them the ability to offer a 24-hour turn-around time for orders in addition to occasionally doing some last-minute decorating while you wait. And yes, yummy savory items can be found at the bakery, too.
