Miami has its fair share of delectable desserts. From Hedy Goldsmith's homemade Nutter Butters to Icebox Café's Chocolate Delight, we've got enough goodies to keep local dentists on their toes. But there's only one cookie company whipping up sweet treats that bear the distinction of being cruelty-free: Om Nom Nom Cookies.

Anthea Ponsetti, founder (and known affectionately as "Head Cookie") recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to take her rapidly growing vegan confection company to the next level.

Currently available at hometown spots like Panther Coffee, the Bookstore in the Grove and O Cinema, the treats come in flavors like orange zested chocolate chip, spicy Mexican snickerdoodle and cranberry walnut oatmeal.

Since their inception in June 2011, the company has been steadily growing in popularity. But more customers means more cookies, and they haven't had the means to effectively package large amounts of their product.

The baking end was working beautifully, because of the establishment we have," Ponsetti says. "Our Achilles heel was the packaging. We ran into a glitch and realized very quickly that we had to purchase some sort of machine."

A flow wrap machine, to be specific. But such things don't come cheap. Hence the start of their $12,000 Kickstarter campaign. The effort launched on September 18, and and it comes to a close on October 28. If they don't raise the $12K, all money raised will have to be refunded to donors. So far, they're at $1,187.
