When Katherine Frankstone was the tender age of five, all she wanted was an Easy Bake oven, but her parents steered her from the toy shop back home to the warmth of their family’s kitchen where she climbed a stool alongside her father and learned to bake in the real thing. For decades, she has been satisfying the sweet teeth of her husband, sons, and flocks of friends with her perfectly balanced crisp yet chewy cookies.
Coming from a family of driven entrepreneurs – her grandparents founded an insurance company in the middle of the Great Depression – Katherine was inspired to transform her hobby into her own specialty food company. With Grey Ghost Bakery, Katherine is serving up a taste of her childhood with a good old fashioned dose of Lowcountry ghost lore. Legend has it in Pawleys Island, SC that the Grey Ghost, a friendly spirit, appears to alert residents of impending storms and protects those who heed his warning.
Believing the real thing is the best thing, Grey Ghost Bakery’s fresh, premium ingredients include: unbleached, unbromated flour, European-style butter, pure cane sugar, whole eggs, pure vanilla extract, cocoa, crystallized ginger, molasses, cane syrup, and premium nuts and spices.“Great recipes and premium, real ingredients are the keys to our freshness and taste,” says Katherine who joyfully points out that despite all real ingredients and a lack of preservatives, the cookies have a surprisingly long shelf life (90-120 days depending on variety).Shop Grey Ghost Bakery
