What would you expect from a two-time national
champion water-polo player, member of the 1996-97 University of California–Los
Angeles men's basketball team, and flamenco guitar player? If you guessed
cookie connoisseur, you're right! Parker's Crazy Cookies
specializes in custom cookies made to look just like you, your dog, or your
company logo. They're perfect as wedding favors or for birthday parties or

We chatted with the founder of Parker's Crazy Cookies,
Dave Parker, to learn a bit more about the company, the idea, and what makes his
cookies so crazy!
did you come up with the idea for Parker's Crazy Cookies? Have you always
enjoyed baking?I came up with the idea for Parker's Crazy Cookies
while talking with my college coach about animal crackers. I thought it would
be fun to make our college water polo team into cookies for fundraising, and he
loved it. I loved it, too, and spent a year or so trying to figure out how to
do it. Once I figured it out, I left my job and started Parker's Crazy Cookies!
I have always enjoyed baking and
spent some time overseas doing it and really fell in love with it.
love that your cookies are vegan! Why was it important to you to create a
recipe that was all-natural and free of milk and eggs?It was important to create a low-sugar health-conscious
cookie, and we realized oil would be better than fat. After that, we just
decided to remove the milk and eggs to go vegan, and once we tinkered
with the recipe, we actually found it tasted even better than with
"pet" Parker's Crazy Cookies are too cute! Do you share your home
with any cats or dogs?We have one dog, a golden retriever. We love dogs and feel they are the greatest
pets in the world.
Check back in July for your chance to win a set of
custom cookies to look just like your barking or meowing family member.
