Cookie Machine Adds Cakes/Cupcakes and Saturday Lunch Hrs

My first experience with Cookie Machine was selling tubs of frozen cookie dough for an elementary school fundraiser many years ago. Cookie Machine is the only gourmet cookie dough business in Tarrant County and was the first cookie dough fundraiser company for local organizations.

Cookie Machine, located at 3100 W. Arkansas Lane (corner of Arkansas and Roosevelt) in Dalworthington Gardens, has been in the cookie dough business for more than 25 years. This summer, Cookie Machine is rolling out cakes, pies and cupcakes in addition to their freshly baked cookies and cookie cakes. They are currently offering a selection of 10 flavors of cakes and cupcakes, and 3 delicious pies.

I had the opportunity to try their German Chocolate cupcake at the Dalworthington Gardens 75th Celebration on Sunday, June 12. Cookie Machine participated along with other DWG food vendors to provide food and drink to the attendees at reduced prices. My cupcake was moist and fresh with a perfect icing. I have since tried the Italian Cream, Coconut, Southern Pecan (really tastes almost exactly like pecan pie) and Carrot Spice cupcakes. They are all wonderful.

Many years after the cookie dough fundraiser, I found out that Cookie Machine offers more than just cookies. It has a menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts (including gluten free sandwiches and desserts. You can also order cookie platters and sandwich trays. They have added lunch hours on Saturdays from 11am – 2pm in addition to their regular hours on Monday – Friday of 10am – 6pm. I tried the grilled chicken breast sandwich Saturday before last when they started opening on Saturdays and was very pleased with how tender and moist the chicken was.

So whether you have an organization that needs a fundraising project, a party that needs sandwiches and/or dessert, you want to grab a quick, reasonably priced lunch or just have a sweet tooth calling out for something, stop by Cookie Machine to take care of your needs.

Location update: As of May, 2012 Cookie Machine has moved to 2304 Park Row Dr., Pantego, TX.
