Signature Series: Campus Bakeshops

FSD examines the must-make items at several campus bakeries.


The University of Colorado, Boulder, bakeshop shows its school spirit by making these Oreo-style cookies in the shape of its mascot, the buffalo.

"We offer these at our retail bakeshop," says Jim Okerson, executive pastry chef. "Basically we make a chocolate shortbread and we cut it into a buffalo shape. We bake it and then fill it with a cream cheese, whipped cream, vanilla and marshmallow. It’s small treat, but it’s quite popular. We sell probably a dozen a day."
