Holiday Cookie Tins, Boxes, Gifts

by Regina 4. December 2014 06:14

We are nearing the end of the first week of December, which means Christmas is only three weeks away! Don't wait until the last minute to get your co-workers, managers and/or bosses a thoughtful (and yummy!) gift. Remember people may be out of the office sooner than you think, so get your holiday cookie gifts out of the way.

If you remember from last year, we are offering cookie Tins, Boxes and even small baggys - a wide variety depending on your recepient.

Feel free to drop by to custom choose your cookie tins or boxes, or if you need a large quantity, please call us and order in advance so we can bake them just for you. The boxes are perfect for 6-12 cookies, and the tins are great for 6-24 -- depending on the size and type of cookie. We'll be baking mini size in addition to our regular sizes in store. In addition to our regular cookie selection, we'll also bring back Raspberry Sandwiches, Gingerbread, Spritz and Mexican Wedding Cookies.

If you don't like the tin, or want something a little different, we can also pack the same cookies inside this festive box with a bow:

Lots of different choices so make sure you call us or stop by the store. We're happy to make suggestions and place your orders in advance!

Happy Holidays!

Valentine's Day 2013 just around the corner

by Regina 4. February 2013 04:08

This particular Monday morning is a little bit rougher than usual, isn't it - with the 49ers being so close to winning the Superbowl yesterday. But they played one helluva game. We want to congratulate them on a great season and a great game yesterday. We're proud of you, San Francisco 49ers!

For those still mourning over the loss, we have some sweets to distract you. Plus, Valentine's Day is only 10 short days away so you'll want to read on if you haven't planned anything yet.

What I'm really excited about this year is our Chocolate Chip Cookie Hearts. We made a couple last year to test the waters but didn't really advertise it. We were so happy to learn how well received they were! And at only $6.95 each, they are easy on the wallets. We can decorate them or leave them undecorated - and we can put a custom message too. Just let us know when you place your order over the phone or in-stores.

Last year we also received a record-breaking number of orders for our Chocolate Hearts. It's our award-winning chocolate cake in a shape of a heart and drizzled with some raspberry icing. Please be sure to place an order for any of these items! We do make a handful of extras for last minute walks-in, but the only way to guarantee any of these products is to place an order at least two days in advance. And we did run out last year!

And we of course will be having our Sweetheart Cake available through out the month of February. We receive numerous requests to have this cake year-round but it's a Valentine's Day exclusive. Our chocolate cake is filled with raspberry jam in the middle, then frosted and decorated with Kirsch-Raspberry cream cheese. It's available in all sizes; more information can be found here. (Note: the cake pictured above has been pre-marked for slicing).

Looking for something even easier? Get a red box of our assorted heart-shaped cookies. These boxes are perfect for the office or your group of friends. Choose your own assortment, or we'll be sure to pre-pack some of them next Thursday so you can pop in and pop out without delay. Cookies that are available in heart-shape are: Raspberry Sandwiches, Half Dips and Gingerbread.

We have a few other heart-shaped options including our Strawberry Mousse, Tiramisu Cheesecake and Cream Puffs. There will be limited quantity on each item, especially the Mousse and the Cheesecake so be sure to place an order as soon as you can. 

Call the store nearest you today! Don't wait because Thursday, February 14th will be here before you know it. 

Happy Valentine's Day!

Holiday Cookie Gifts with Exclusive Cookies, including Hanukkah

by Regina 28. November 2012 03:34

Theoretically you can gift cookies any time of the year, but why is it so much better to do so during the holidays? Maybe it's the spirit of giving, or maybe it's the festive packaging - either way it's the perfect gift to give and the perfect gift to receive... Especially when the cookies are made from scratch and baked fresh every morning (sometimes multiple times a day!), like ours.

You have a couple different options with us, depending on how many cookies you'd like. If you just want to surprise your co-worker with a little bag of goodies on your way back from lunch, we can pack a couple cookies into a little baggie for you, tie a ribbon around it and call it in a day. Each store has several festive designs for the bags so make sure you ask to see them all!

If you're looking for more than just a couple of cookies, our red cookie boxes can fit about a dozen (depending on the cookies). With this option, you are completely free to choose what assortment and how many cookies you'd like -- there is just a small fee for the box and accompanying bow. This is a great gift for friends!

But maybe you're looking for something a little nicer. Something for your boss or supervisor? We have a large variety of cookie tins to choose from. Small or large, choose the size you think is right for you. We can fill them up with mini cookies, regular size cookies or decorated Gingerbread cookies. We have presets to make choosing easy, or make your own assortment if you'd like.

Any option you choose, the recepient will be receiving freshly baked cookies made with only natural ingredients - no artificial flavors or colors or preservatives. For a gift that is relatively easy for you (all you need to do is walk into our store!), your thoughtfulness and generosity will not go unnoticed.

We also bake a few cookies exclusively this time of year: Gingerbread, Mexican Wedding Cookies (also known as Russian Tea Cakes or Italian Butter Nuts) and Spritz Cookies (also known as Swedish Butter Cookies). Our Gingerbread are available in various shapes and sizes, from small boys and girls to Hanukkah shapes of dreidels and menorahs, to large gingerbread men. Because we use high-quality butter that is essential to the recipe, both our Mexican Wedding Cookies and Spritz Cookies have really great depth in their flavors. Personally they are my favorite cookies that we make and only available this time of year!

Like with all our products, I encourage you to call in to place an order in advance. We'll have cookies and supplies on hand but can't guarantee that we won't run out! And if you need multiple boxes or tins, please do call us so we can bake to order for you. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Until my next post, stay warm!
