WICHITA — Not long after Connie Hamilton opened her Connie's Cookies 20 years ago, customers began asking if she would consider allowing her cookie dough to be used for children’s fundraisers.
It is "one of the things I was always afraid to do," Hamilton says.

"Now our capacity is unlimited," Hamilton says.

That's thanks to her new arrangement with New York's Kerr Enterprises to sell her cookies internationally.
The co-packer that is making the dough for international distribution can make dough for fundraisers and then truck it to schools.
