In 1995, caterer Sallie Price was preparing a picnic celebration for a client and realized at the last minute she had forgotten the dessert. She looked to see what ingredients she had available and prepared her mother’s toffee cookie recipe. The guests went crazy and encouraged her to package her cookies during the holidays to give as gifts. In 2000, Sallie’s husband Carter joined her in the business and they now produce Goodness Gracie Gourmet foods year round for the world to enjoy. Goodness Gracie Gourmet foods are still produced in small batches by hand.
