Lovin' Their Cookies 

Side Dishes: Ferrisburgh couple make their XO mark

Paul Seyler of North Ferrisburgh wanted to own a California-style burrito cart. His wife, Suzanna Miller, dreamed of a cookie company. While those two desires may sound like a recipe for disaster, the duo found a clever way to cooperate.

"We joked about combining the ideas," Miller relates. "We could make cookie dough, package it like a burrito and call it a DOUGH-rito." And they did just that. At their new company, Vermont Cookie Love, they make cylinders of frozen cookie dough, wrap 'em up street-style in foil, and ship them to stores such as Fat Hen Market in Vergennes and the Shelburne Meat Market in Shelburne. The stores carry packages of pre-baked cookies, too.

Each of Cookie Love's six flavors is named after a different type of affection. "Puppy Love" is a youthful combination of peanut butter and chocolate chips, while "Addicted to Love" is an appropriately chocolate-y mocha chocolate chip. And naturally the couple included "True Love," which is a wholesome mix of oatmeal and dried cranberries.

This autumn as the leaves whirl, look for a fresh flavor made with pumpkin and chocolate chips. The name? "Falling in Love," of course.
