Delectable Pig Tales

Posted by Lia Chang

Karen Lowe's Pig Tales are scrumptious hand-decorated sugar cookies-spotted pigs and golden pigs- with notes of fragrant Meyer lemon and rich Madagascar Bourbon vanilla.

Over dinner with Karen Lowe of six persimmons, inc., a New York based cookie company dedicated to creating iced cookies with a chic artisanal edge, I discovered that for the Year of the Boar, she has created Pig Tales, a collection of cookies in the shapes of spotted pigs and golden pigs (painted with edible gold leaf.) Scrumptious, freshly baked, hand-decorated sugar cookies with notes of fragrant Meyer lemon and rich Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, Karen packages them in a boxed set of 18 for $75. (plus delivery) Each cookie measures approximately 2 3/4" w x 2 3/8" d. They are marvelous for gifts and will add a special touch to your Chinese New Year festivities.
