A DOZEN EGGS BAKE SHOPPE is a small, owner-operated, fully licensed bakery located in Mount Holly, Vermont. We started our business in 2004 in Boston, Massachusetts, our home for 16 years, before moving ourselves and our pets to the bucolic splendor of Vermont. Now we have our own bakery, plenty of parking and lots of snow!
Here we are enjoying a snow day with our black lab, Lucy. The Train-Station-looking building is our home and the bakery is the building behind the house.
Though A Dozen Eggs is a small shoppe, we can do big things.
We have been featured in the 2007 Dean & Deluca Valentine's Day catalog (we were on the cover!), Our cookies were also sold in the 2007 and 2008 Ballard Designs Holiday Catalog and we have been featured in the Mackenzie Limited Holiday Catalog since 2007, which we produce an average of 4000 cookies in one month!
On TV, A Dozen Eggs has been seen on the Food Network and the Phantom Gourmet. In print, we have been featured in Boston Magazine, The Boston Globe and South Boston Online.
We are working with New York radio personality Lisa G on a Lisa G Cookie Collection of bras. A portion of the proceeds of this collection (10%) will be going to the Susan G Komen Foundation that works to find a cure for Breast Cancer.
In May of 2009 we opened our bakery to the public and now sell cupcakes, cakes and a variety of sweets and treats. It gave us a chance to meet our neighbors and also spread out beyond cookies. If you're in the Green Mountain state please feel free to stop by and have a cupcake. We'd love to see you.
The cookie genius behind A Dozen Eggs is Laura.
She began baking and selling sugar cookies as A Dozen Eggs in 2004. A 2003 graduate of the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, Laura graduated with the highest honors in her class. She has worked as a Kitchen Assistant (dish washer) for the nationally distributed magazine, Cook’s Illustrated and as the Pastry Assistant for Hamersley’s Bistro in the South End of Boston.
Before pursuing her dream of making the best sugar cookies around, Laura worked in retail for eighteen years for several stores including FAO Schwarz and Filene’s Basement.
Laura is responsible for designing and icing (almost) all the cookies that move through the shop. She picks the bakery flavors and executes the complex designs Dave sketches out for her.
Laura is aided by her loyal husband Dave. Dave worked in the print industry as a graphic designer and production supervisor for 14 years before he traded in his mouse for a rolling pin.
Now he is responsible for the website, print materials, dough and cupcake production and making sure Laura doesn't get overworked or stressed out. Though sometimes he adds to the stress. Like the time he accidentally deleted the blog from the website... but that's a long story.
How did we end up in Vermont?!
