Oh yes. These cookies and their brethren at the newly opened Eat Sweet Bakery in Pine Island, New York, about an hour north of what the locals call "the City," ( mere mortals know it as New York,) are tasty beyond description. The thirty-somethings who do all the baking, run the shop, and handle the catering, are determined to make use of local ingredients as much as possible.

"There are at least 5 different theories to the origin of the modern day cheeseburger, all of which involve a cook and a 1930′s diner in America..."
Here are a few:
"The first cheeseburger was created between 1924 and 1926 by a chef named Lionel Sternberger in Pasadena, California, USA. The anecdote goes along the lines of a passing homeless man suggested Sternberger should add a slice of cheese to his hamburger order, Sternberger then added this to his main menu and the cheeseburger was born.
Other places have claimed the invention of the cheeseburger as part of their local legend. Louisville, Kentucky-based Kaelin’s Restaurant has claimed to invent the cheeseburger in 1934. The following year, the trademark for the name “cheeseburger” was awarded to Louis Ballast of the Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Denver, Colorado."
