"They taste as good as they look."
That's something we never get tired of hearing.
Because at Swoon, what's inside our signature sugar cookies is as important as all that meets the eye. Like pure, natural ingredients mixed into a beloved family recipe that takes on new life in the creative hands of Swoon founders Sofia Varanka Hudson and Lauren Wendlandt.
It was in Hudson's furniture store Hudson Home, located in Kansas City's Crossroads Arts District, where locals first acquired a taste for her mother-in-law's cookies on monthly First Fridays art gallery opening nights. When Hudson Home moved to a nearby new location in 2010, enthusiastic cookie customers tracked her down and Hudson knew the cookies were something special. She soon combined her design talents with noted architect Wendlandt, who has contributed her artistic and baking skills ever since.
