About The Cookie Girl

Pastry chef Zoë Klasel founded The Cookie Girl in her Houston kitchen in November 2009. By September 2010, she realized the need for commercial kitchen space and to add more employees!

Known by friends and even strangers as The Cookie Girl, Zoë learned to bake as soon as she could see over the counter in her Aunt Twing’s kitchen.
She earned her degree in Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts at the Scottsdale Culinary Institute, and  honed her skills as the pastry chef at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, and later at Carrie’s Kitchen, a bakery in Tomball, Texas.

Her stellar reputation and extensive ties to the wedding industry helped her land a position as a catering and event sales director at another Houston-area country club, where her main job was to help couples customize their dream weddings.

But she’s best known for her buttery sugar cookies carefully piped with sweet icing, which are a centerpiece at every family function. She had so many requests for custom orders, she decided to take everyone’s advice and turn her hobby into a business.

Why cookies? Because each new shape is a new opportunity to create something unique and individual.

“It lets me be creative,” Zoë says. “And if it doesn’t turn out right, I can just eat it.”
