  • The eight-layer cake at Succotash is symbolic of the restaurant’s approach to pastry.

Beth Barden is hoping that she has discovered the latest must-have hand-held item of the holiday season: Christmas cookies.

“Technology is awesome if you use it the right way, but I feel like so many people are missing their lives because they’re talking to someone while texting.” Barden says. “It’s the same thing with cookies. Why do you have to settle for buying a shitty bag of cookies?”

Today she explains why her restaurant, Succotash, is selling Christmas cookies this year. On Thursday, Barden talked about her first restaurant job in Kansas City at YJ’s. On Friday, she sang the praises of savory sweets.
