Bake of the Week
Every Wednesday, I will post a special treat that will only be available for the following week (unless you make a custom order). You can place an order up to 48 hours before pick up. Bake of the Week will be available for pick up on Fridays between 1pm-6pm in Hyde Park, Chicago, Illinois.
Get notified about this week’s treat by following @windycitybaker on Instagram or joining my email list.
Pick up times outside of the pick up window may be available upon request. Reach out to [email protected] if you have any questions!
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These large oatmeal raisin cookies are filled with plump raisins, chewy oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, and a touch of vanilla. They have a crisp outer edge with a soft and chewy middle!
This product is available for pick up on Friday, June 3rd from 1pm-6pm.
Looking for something other than our Everyday Classics or the Bake of the Week? We’d love to work with you to make a special treat!
We are able to complete a limited number of custom orders each week, so it’s better to contact us as early as possible to secure your spot. The custom order schedule fills up on a first-come, first-served basis. Popular days can fill up weeks or months in advance.
Please also be aware that we are a Cottage Food Operation, which allows us to bake out of a home kitchen. This also means that there are some restrictions on the baked goods that can be made and sold.
Custom orders can be made at least 48 hours ahead (although a longer time may be necessary for larger orders). A custom order is not accepted until all details are confirmed and full prepayment has been made.
After receiving your order, we’ll call you to confirm all the details and place your custom order. In the event your desired date isn’t available, we can explore other options.
