Kent Hill got his name as a lineman for the Los Angeles Rams, but his love of cooking is Southern and homegrown. Kent grew up in Americus, Georgia in the kitchen of his mother and grandmother. Southern cooking fueled Kent’s development into a lineman for the Los Angeles Rams. Playing football and traveling the country kept Kent away from his mother’s kitchen and the Southern food he loved. To stay close to his roots, Kent began mixing up his family cookie recipe. Chocolate chip was his favorite and he soon had the recipe down to an art. After a successful football career Kent returned to the South and continued baking his favorite cookies. In good Southern tradition, Kent shared his fresh cookies with friends and family. As word spread about these gourmet delicacies, more people asked for Kent’s Cookies. In 2006 Kent’s Country Cookies opened its doors. Today these sweet treats are baked in Dekalb County, Georgia with wholesome ingredients, just like grandma used to. We are happy to share them with you as the perfect end to a PeachDish meal or a gift for loved ones.
