While it may not be baking in the usual sense, with all its weighing and measuring and other ritual preparations, their cookies are made with natural ingredients and certainly taste homemade

Kooky Dough

Co-founder of Kooky Dough, a young company that makes deliciously natural cookies-to-bake-quickly-at home, Sophie Morris and her business partner, Graham Clarke, famously turned down investment offers on ‘Dragons’ Den’ a while back - and then went on to make a huge success of their business.


Their mission statement is ‘bringing baking back to the masses’ and while it may not be baking in the usual sense, with all its weighing and measuring and other ritual preparations, their cookies are made with natural ingredients certainly taste homemade.


A very handy item to keep in the fridge or freezer ready to slice up and pop into the oven at any time, they come in several equally pleasing varieties - chocolate chip (with and without nuts), cranberry & white chocolate and triple chocolate chip.


Sophie has also written a cookbook, Sophie Kooks Quick and Easy Feelgood Food (Gill & Macmillan, hardback €22.99) and the same principles of speed and quality applied to her business are seen in her approach to home cooking.


She says that making a nourishing home-cooked meal every day is key to staying on top of her hectic life: ‘Why reach for the take-away menu when you can assemble Dad’s Chinese Beef in minutes?’

Available from: selected supermarkets and independent stores including Nolans Supermarket, Avoca Handweavers, Donnybrook Fair, and Fresh of Camden Street and Grand Canal Dock. abbreviations
