We are delighted to offer these beautiful and delicious decorated shortbread cookies.
Made by a local baker Indra Hoover in Cary, NC exclusively for The Umstead Hotel and Spa each cookie is hand painted and tied with a bow for a cheerful treat to all ages.
Kari’s Branded Cookies began in 2010 when Indra Hoover started baking with her daughter (and our namesake) Karissa- or Kari, for short. Indra wanted to have the freedom to stay at home and raise her daughter, so she decided to share the special moments they shared together baking with the world.
She took the same cookie recipe and began crafting the unique, custom shortbread cookies that Kari’s is known for today- made the same way as always, with just as much love as ever. The secret is in the simple, all-natural ingredients, because at Kari’s, we believe that you should treat everything you make as if it were your friends and family you were cooking for.
