Lindy is a long time baker and lover of spreading joy to others! Her baking journey began with raising 5 boys who all wanted to play sports and take music lessons while money was tight. So each of the boys took their turn at “owning” the cookie business out of their home. They would each go door to door and pass out samples of her sugar cookies and then take orders. Then Lindy would go to work baking for friends and family to help each of the boys raise money to then be able to participate in activities. Whichever son was currently “in charge” of the business would pay for the ingredients and then Lindy would bake, with the help of each of them, and in turn, assist with helping them to earn money to do what they really enjoyed!
Over time, the boys started to leave the nest and Lindy realized she really did love to bake and her cookies started to gain popularity. In 2016, she started baking more and more and the orders from friends, neighbors and family continued to roll in. This quickly became more than a hobby!
Today, Lindy’s Cookies employs 10+ talented gals who work hard to help create deliciously beautiful cookies and bake out of a commercial kitchen right here in Carmel! The love of baking, icing and detailing is shared by all who work at Lindy’s Cookies and the joy that is spread throughout the kitchen, while creating custom cookie orders ranging from 100-200 dozen per week, is infectious!
While Lindy now resides in Northeast Georgia, where she is closer to her 5 grown sons, she has such a great team that she is at peace with leaving the cookies in the “literal” hands of her team. Carli Pratt is heading up the crew in the kitchen as the creative director and manager. Jodi Wenthe is all things business-related and keeps everything running smoothly. Together they make up the force behind Lindy’s Cookies that will continue to provide customized cookies to all who enjoy blessing others with them and also eating them!
While Lindy still loves to bake, ice and customize each cookie to meet the desires of her faithful customers, she mostly loves seeing JOY spread to the recipients of each and every cookie! She is so excited to be taking this journey to the next level with amazing people who share her passion for spreading joy to a broken world who desperately needs more JOY! Thank you to all of you who support Lindy’s Cookies. We could not, and would not, do this without you!
