My personal favorite is the snickerdoodle--OH. MY. But they're all good--chocolate chip, chocolate chip with pecans, white chocolate macadamia nut, and more.

Plus they bake their family recipes passed down over many years within their family, every day. No preservatives or anything like that. Just awesome cookie goodness.

You can watch them create the magic right there at the bakery, too! Kelsey A., Yelp

The cookie company actually started when friends and family started telling them they oughta "share" these cookies with all of us--and we are glad they did.

Recently you may have seen them at one of the Brookshire's grocery stores and even at OTHER locally-owned East Texas businesses who've started selling them as dessert options at their own places.

But NOW? Well, we'll be able to make them at home.

Today we learned that you can buy Sister2Sister Cookie DOUGH at Super 1 FoodsBe prepared for slight sticker shock: They're almost 12 dollars a bag for 8 cookies. So yeah, they're not cheap...but they're sooo good. 

My only foreseeable problem? Restraining myself from eating them raw. Like, every day.

OK, so after all of that cookie eating, ya know what you need next? COFFEE. According to Tyler residents themselves, these are some of the best places to get it:
