New Baby Cookie Favors coming this summer at Country Cupboard Cookies!

So sweet Cookies to welcome a new baby!

This summer, we will be offering a larger line of baby shower and new baby cookie favors which will include the ability to order online. Each cookie is baked from scratch using all natural and wholesome ingredients such as Butter, pure vanilla, whole eggs, unbleached flour and white cane sugar. We hand roll our cookies and then decorate each cookie with royal icing. When the cookies dry, they are simply gorgeous! We package each cookie in a sealed bag and tie with a matching raffia ribbon for a festive look. We can ship the cookies anywhere in the US.

Watch our website for new additions all summer long.

Recipe for Dirt

Recipe for Dirt  ( Dessert that is)


1/2 cup softened butter
1 ( 8oz.) pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
2 ( 3.5 oz each ) boxes instant vanilla pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1 container ( 12 oz)  Cool Whip
32 oz. Chocolate Sandwich cookies ( Oreos)


Cream butter, cream cheese and confectioner's sugar in bowl. In another bowl, mix milk, pudding and Cool Whip together. Combine the two above mixtures together.

Chop Oreos ( I put the cookies in a ziploc bag, then use a rolling pin to crush them, but you can also use a food processer if you want finer "dirt " without chunks. )

Start with a container : You can use a dessert bowl or get creative and use a brand new flower pot, plastic beach bucket and shovel would be cute, childs plastic ( new) wheelbarrow, dump truck, etc. I've also used a plastic tray for a garden display with artificial flowers and gummy candies.

Layer in your container, starting with the crushed cookies ( dirt), then cream mixture. Repeat layers, then chill until ready to serve. Just before serving, add your accessories. For example, gummy worms for the flower pot, artificial flowers for the garden, etc.

Kids love this dessert and it's a great one for the hot summer months, NO oven required. As much as I love baking cookies and do almost daily at Country Cupboard Cookies, when the summer months come with the heat and humidity, the last thing I want to do on the weekend is run our oven. That's when the grill comes out and desserts like this one become more popular on my list. I've never tried other flavors of pudding, but I think chocolate pudding might be yummy for a chocolate treat.

Cookies for Summer Celebrations

Summer Celebrations and Cookies go together!
We're still in the middle of Father's Day this weekend but are also thinking ahead to Summer occasions. The colors for the Fourth of July, red, white and blue remind me of summer so much and are a refreshing combination of colors. We're going to package this collection in an adorable summer white box with red dots and red, white and blue raffia ribbon. A simple, Americana gift package. This is such a nice gift to send, we'll have it available all July. You can also choose to add some "traditional" cookies such as chocolate chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Snickerdoodle and Creamy Peanut Butter.

Baked from scratch, wholesome, soft & chewy Cookies

Cookies for Dad

                 We're working on Father's Day Cookies this week. This year we're doing shirts with ties, sporty shirts, striped shirts and a new tropical shirt! #1 Dad cookies are back again this year and I'm sure we'll come up with some new ones as the week goes on. I think cookies are really a nice gift to send for Father's Day, in fact, my Dad always receives a box of Oatmeal Walnut Raisin, his favorite! He always says "you can make a meal out of that cookie"  Ha, especially if you enjoy more than two! But they are a great cookie, rolled oats, wholesome raisins and chunky walnuts with a touch of cinnamon. Of course, all butter and pure vanilla and unbleached flour too. Check our website for lots of Father's Day cookie gift ideas, we start shipping on Monday, June 14th. A reminder: Father's Day is Sunday June 20th, 2010.
