MeMe’s Treats, a New Bakery in Mount Kisco


Dawn White left her successful graphic design career behind to follow her lifelong passion — baking “crazy delicious cookies” at her new Mount Kisco shop, MeMe’s Treats.

White, right, who says she fell in love with baking as a child, launched her cookie business this spring with six original flavors: Dark Chocolate Walnut Chunk, Dark Chocolate Espresso, Peanut Butter Chunk, BananaNana Oatmeal Walnut, Raisinilla and White Chocolate Almond Chunk.

Since then, she has added Double Chocolate Chip, gluten-free Dark Chocolate Coconut and whole wheat Power Bites to the bakery’s menu. (She even created an all-natural treat for pets.)

With her cookies also being sold in a few local stores, White is officially a cookie-nista. But the former graphic designer isn’t letting her artistic talent go to waste. She also designs creative cookie favors for bridal showers, birthday parties and other events. “It’s fantastic. It really is the best of both worlds,” she says.

Details: 159 Lexington Ave., 914-607-1187, Hours 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
