We all know there are plenty of health-conscious and well-sculpted firefighters in New York, thanks to whoever invented the infamous FDNY calendar. After all, they might need to save you from a seven-story building on fire, so they better be fit.

The Keebler Elves bake cookies.The Pillsbury Doughboy bakes cookies. And at least once a month, three local firefighters swap helmets and turnout gear for hair nets and aprons and, you guessed it, bake cookies. Lots of them.
Three White Plains fireman have another "hot" item on their hands: a gluten-free cookie company called Cookie Republic, which has grown beyond their wildest dreams.
