Here's how to find Emily's cookies

This original post had the link to Emily's cookies that was good only after you've confirmed the purchase. Thanks to the readers who alerted me to this error. To get in on a good thing, check out the corrected link at the end of the file. Her lemon stars were a big hit at the Christmas party, but I'm still partial to the coconut macaroons. And she's preparing a line for upcoming seasons. What says Presidents Day better than a sugar cookie shaped like Abraham Lincoln?

When Online Editor Emily Donohue came aboard the Good Ship Saratogian, first as an intern and later as a reporter, I knew she knew something about desserts, having worked for Ben and Jerry's during her school years. Plus, I figured anyone who could work for Pat Pipino would have no problem working for me.
She became the Twitter Queen as county reporter, and this fall stepped up to the position of online editor when Steve Shoemaker left for the web world of Ithaca academia.
Little did I know that Donohue was not only a social media whiz, learning, doing, innovating, and training, but she's also a fantastic baker. That's a plus in a place where we work for food.
This morning she had two trays in the cafeteria beautifully arranged with scrumptious cookies — glazed stars, gingerbread men, pinwheels, fat peppermint sandwiches, glazed almond chai bites, signature cranberry and coconut macaroons. They looked too good to eat -- which didn't stop me or anyone else, of course.
Now I know what I'm bringing to the office holiday party -- cookies by Emily.
Here's her website if you're looking to impress without the stress:

I bought my first order of "Cookies by Emily" to a retirement party last night at the City Tavern. Let's just say I left with an empty tray. Thanks!
