Inspired by Mama Dip’s Pies
The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree,
Council has opened Tonya’s Cookies
diagonally across West Rosemary Street
from Mama Dip’s, a shrine of Southern
cooking started by her grandmother,
Mildred Council. Tonya Council says
she practically grew up in the restaurant
and still works there when not baking in
her own shop. Mama Dip’s patrons likely
already have sampled Tonya’s pecan crisps,
inspired by her grandmother’s pecan pies.
She’s added several flavors (chocolate,
white chocolate, peppermint chocolate), as
well as other delicacies, such as a peanut-
brittle cookie. At the store and online
( tonyascookies.com), she sells them by the
package, tin, jar and gift box. They’re also
in some Whole Foods stores.
Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.- 6
