TEWKSBURY — Among the new vendors at this week’s Tewksbury Com­munity Market at the Tewksbury Public Libra­ry was Cookie Monstah, a food truck specializing in homemade cookies and cookie-ice cream sandwiches.

Cookie Monstah is the product of owner Missy Gale’s lifelong passion for baking. After graduating from Boston Uni­ver­sity, Gale sold her des­serts to a variety of local restaurants before opening her own retail bakery at Filene’s named Dessert Oasis. After clo­sing the bakery, Gale spent eight years working in management be­fore returning to baking full time.

Gale’s return to baking was inspired in part by her pursuit for the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

“I often drove from Bos­ton up to the North Shore pondering where I could stop and indulge on that ideal cookie. It had to be fresh, it had to be from scratch,” she said on her website. “Flew to Chica­go, drove to NYC, mail ordered from LA, strolled farmers markets. Friends and family told me my cookies could beat any, bar none.”

And thus, Cookie Mon­stah was born. Featured on the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations and NBC Boston, Cookie Monstah offers a variety of cookies, including classic flavors, like chocolate chip, as well as unique ones, such as s’mores and oreo-stuffed. Customers can create a custom ice cream sandwich using their choice of cookie and Richardson's ice cream flavor.

The Tewksbury Com­mu­nity Market will have its final market of the season at the Tewksbury Public Library on Tues­day Sept. 22 from 4 to 7 p.m.
