‘People really care about these cookies’
Connie Rosendahl never wanted a business. A mother of five with a working husband, Rosendahl did not have free time.

Though Rosendahl said she may not have wanted to start a business, she is part of one now — Sisters Cookie Company, a staple in the Moscow community.
