Originally a part-time project in college for owner Jody and her husband, after being inspired by the treats they enjoyed while on exchange in Europe, Folks And Stories became a full-time gig after graduated in 2018.

It all started with her husband’s love for butter cookies, which led her to want to bake for him so he could enjoy them without the additives of store-bought varieties. Today, Folks And Stories stays true to this: their pastries are made with only natural ingredients, with no artificial flavors or colors. In addition, they only use French butter, Belgian couverture chocolate, as well as homemade jams and reductions.

Folks & Stories cookies are characterized by their baked finish, with light, crisp edges and soft, chewy centers. There are Professor Nutty ($4.50)a brown butter biscuit sandwiched with a homemade roasted pistachio ganache, inspired by Jody’s husband, while My Kooky Boo ($4.50) is a biscoff cheesecake cookie with almond pecan granola – fun fact: Jody first sold her homemade granola on Folks & Stories when they returned from swapping!
