We are so excited for all of our customers to try this creative, delicious treat.”
The Famous Cookie Baking Competition was held in October 2023 in honor of National Cookie Month. Following an initial call for entries, a total of 18 original cookie recipes were submitted – nine of which were selected to advance to the semi-final tasting round. Of those nine, three Famous finalists were selected by a panel of judges to participate in a live bake-off at Reading Terminal Market where Pam’s Pistachio Cardamom Cookie took the crown.
As the grand prize winner, Pam also received a $500 gift card from Reading Terminal Market, Reading Terminal Market and Famous 4th Street Cookie Company apparel and swag, and, of course, Famous 4th Street Cookies.
