I don't sell cookies. I do often receive requests for cookies and like to pass these on to local or online cookiers. I recently tasted cookies from three different folks to whom I've referred customers. All three produced absolutely lovely-looking cookies, all three tasted bland, dusty, and stodgy. I could taste flour and baking powder, no butter, no vanilla, no almond. All three went in the trash. I won't refer to them in the future, but do I provide feedback on the cookies? Surely they know how bad the taste is? Most of the business seems to be women buying amazing-looking cookies for events that people take home with them and eat later. So maybe taste doesn't really matter? Should I give feedback? Do you business-minded cookiers use butter or flavoring?
