MPS therapist sells cookies and scones at home-run Chozzie’s Bakery

Christine M. Kilzek

Chozzie's Bakery has a winter theme for this batch of cookies.  Kristin Zenz challenged herself to decorate cookies by hand.

A math problem about muffins was the first clue that Kristin Zenz might be a baker. While it’s just one way the elementary school student learns fractions, she can’t stop thinking about muffins. She wants to go home and make recipes.

She has been baking ever since. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy to start with, it’s mostly for fun. As a speech therapist in the Milwaukee Public Schools, she bakes bread whenever she can. Last summer, she decided to use her extra time to start a baking business, adding skills and more recipes while gaining confidence.

Chozzie’s Bakery officially opened in May 2022, and she began selling at Menomonee Falls Farmers Market. This home baker is constantly challenging himself while learning what people like. She continues to offer her best-selling chocolate chip cookies, almond croissants and scotch, as well as seasonal treats, while expanding her range of cinnamon rolls, cakes and hand-decorated cookies.
