For decades, I've has been satisfying the sweet teeth of her husband, sons, and flocks of friends with her perfectly balanced crisp yet chewy cookies.
Like the ghost tales of the Carolina Lowcountry, Grey Ghost Bakery’s legendary recipes have been passed down for generations. They're a small family-owned baking company based in South Carolina and they use the highest quality all natural ingredients to create their made-from-scratch, hand-formed cookies in a range of truly addictive flavors.
Pawleys Island, SC legend has it that the Grey Ghost, a friendly spirit, appears to alert residents of impending storms and protects those who heed his warning. Inspired by her lazy summer days spent baking and sharing Lowcountry lore with friends and family on the porch of her Pawleys Island beach house, owner Katherine Frankstone named the company for the beloved legend.
Believing the real thing is the best thing, Grey Ghost Bakery's fresh, all-natural ingredients include: unbleached, unbromated flour, European-style butter, pure cane sugar, whole eggs, pure vanilla extract, cocoa, crystallized ginger, molasses, cane syrup, and premium nuts and spices.
Their made-from-scratch, cookies not only feature fresh, premium, all-natural ingredients, they're lovingly hand-formed according to secret family recipes perfected over generations.
Grey Ghost Bakery's founder Katherine Frankstone learned the craft of baking alongside her father who always used natural ingredients. "Great recipes and premium, real ingredients are the keys to our freshness and taste," says Katherine who joyfully points out that despite all natural ingredients and a lack of preservatives, the cookies have a surprisingly long shelf life (90-120 days depending on variety).
