Some might say that this cookie is over the top; even hedonistic. I say “life is short; enjoy every Booty Bar!” Layers of shortbread, dulce de leche, Rice Krispies, Nutella, and flourless brownie combine to recreate a candy bar from my my childhood. Over the top, hedonistic, PERFECT. (For the best Booty experience: eat these COLD.) Featured on the Food Network’s Unique Sweets.
The other day, I read an article by Dana Brownlee in which she said "Racial injustice in 2020 isn’t fundamentally a black problem, arguably it’s a white problem. Our most recent racial injustice reminders – George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Amy Cooper, Omar Jimenez – while abhorrent and despicable, for most black people sadly weren’t all that shocking. For us, it wasn’t news. It was just a peek into the reality with which we’re all too familiar. This is why so many feel a sense of activism fatigue (whether they’re an activist or not) and why many insist that the onus really lay with white people to decide that enough is enough".
As a white woman I am saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! To my black neighbors, friends, and customers - I love you, I support you, and I will work to actively create an inclusive community. We at VLC are continuing to engage in ways to be part of the healing, and as you know, cookies are typically how we get our message out.
Enter, our participation in Bakers Against Racism. This initiative was started in Washington DC by Chefs Paola Velez, Willa Lou Pelini, Chef Rob Rubba to raise funds for local organizations working to end racism. We are fired up and getting our booties to work to support this effort, these nonprofits, and share some love with our Booty Bars.
