Molly Moon Neitzel earned accolades aplenty and satiated many a sweet tooth as the proprietor of Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop.

The ice cream shops — in Seattle’s Capitol Hill, Madrona, Queen Anne and Wallingford neighborhoods — begat a cookbook in April. Neitzel is due at Costco, 1801 10th Ave. N.W., at 11 a.m. Saturday to sign copies of “Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream” — a collection of recipes adapted from the boutique ice cream shops for home cooks.

Neitzel garnered national notoriety for creating ice creams and sorbets fashioned from local, organic and sustainable ingredients.

Milk in the ice cream comes from a Lynden dairy, berries from a Carnation farm and lavender from a Sequim grower. Instead of cane sugar, Molly Moon’s shops use sugar from Idaho beets.

In 2011, Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop earned the Small Business of the Year honor in the inaugural King County Executive’s Small Business Awards.
