Sourdough Cookie Starter
Sourdough Cookie Starter Kit ( AKA “ Sweetie”)
Sweetie is one of our favourite fermenters. Ok, she’s actually a sourdough cookie starter.
She produces cookies with complex malty, fruity & sometimes chocolatey notes. Besides cookies, you can also use this cookie starter to make fermented cakes, sweet pastry dough and sweet breads (ie cinnamon buns, brioche and even doughnuts!). She is the ultimate dessert that truly satisfies a fermenter’s gut, taste buds and conscience.
How to care for your sourdough cookie starter
When fed on a weekly diet (just 1 feeding per week for maintenance) of flour (i.e. brown rice, kamut, spelt or buckwheat), sugar (coconut sugar, raw sugar, rapadura) and milk (dairy or non dairy), she will thrive happily and will keep your cookie jar forever full. If cared for, sweetie will last you for your whole life. You can also share her with your friends and family.
We will provide most of the ingredients you need for Sweetie’s first feeding and for your first ever batch of sourdough cookie dough.
The only ingredients you need to get are:
- Milk of choice (nut or dairy milk)
- Oil of choice (ghee, butter or coconut oil)
- Vanilla extract
- baking powder
