I enjoy holiday cookies. Okay, I like cookies in general, but there’s something about brightly decorated cookies with snowflakes and candy canes and all of that holiday goodness that just makes holiday cookies a lot more fun. When the opportunity came up to try a gourmet holiday cookie bouquet from Cookies by Design, I couldn’t pass on the opportunity.
If you aren’t familiar with cookie bouquets, the concept is simple (and actually started by Cookies by Design!) Start with the concept of a bouquet of flowers, but instead of colorful flowers, you have colorfully, hand-decorated cookies and you have a cookie bouquet! Doesn’t that sound delicious?
When we first receive the Cookies by Design Happy Holidays Bouquet, I was impressed with the care they took to ensure the cookie bouqet arrived in perfect condition. The bouquet was wrapped in plastic and carefully packed in a durable carboard box. There are wooden pegs glued to the back of each cookie (the cookies are wrapped too!) and inserted into the base so you can see each beautifully decorated cookie in the bouquet.
The Cookies by Design Happy Holidays Bouquet comes in a variety of sizes – from 1 cookie ($10) to 12 cookies ($89.99.) These cookies are hand-decorated with traditional Christmas symbols that capture the holiday spirit.
But the Cookies by Design Cookie Bouquets don’t just look amazing, they taste as good as they look. Admittedly, after photographing the cookies, I squirrelled away all but one, thinking I couldn’t possibly eat all of these cookies in the immediate future. I was wrong. Each night for the next 4 nights, I found myself pulling a cookie out of the freezer so I could enjoy it as a snack. I now only have two cookies left!
In addition to the detailed cookie decoration, what makes the Cookies By Design cookies different from others is the quality and the flavor of the cookie and the icing. I’ve tried some iced cookies that tasted artificial, were bland, or were WAY too sweet. Made with sugar and cinnamon brown sugar cookie dough, these cookies were perfectly sweet without being TOO sweet. The cookies were so soft, you knew they were freshly baked. In short, these are the perfect cookie for both kids and adults!
If you’re looking for a last-minute gift idea, Cookies by Design offers same day delivery on many of their gourmet cookie bouquets in select areas. With cookie bouquets, cookies, and other delicious baked gifts starting as low as $7.75, it’s easy to find a “sweet” gift for anyone with Cookies by Design.
