Milk and Cookies

   We've changed our recipe for Chocolate chip Cookies this week. Not a big change, but after 20 years, things needed tweaked. So we increased the brown sugar and lowered the white. Increased the eggs and lowered the oven temperature. The result: thicker, chunkier softer and moister. Still crispy on the edges, I think this one is something special.

Cookie Delivery for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is my favorite season here at Country Cupboard Cookies. It's not that I'm so romantic or that I love the colors red and pink so much, but I really do like the simplicity of the holiday. Hearts, Hearts and Hearts. Red, pink, white. Sugar & Chocolate. After the crazy Christmas season around here, I'm in the need for simplicity. We've photographed some new items this year for Valentine's Day, I think they all look delicious, but my favorite are the new mini-hearts, buttery sugary cookies topped with pink, red and white icings. Like I said, simple. This photo is of our new Love Letters Box. The stack of cookies are really little envelopes sealed with a heart. It's hard to tell in this photo with the ribbon, but they are so cute.         Gourmet Valentine's Day cookie delivery

Snow Day Cookie Box

Love the colors of blue and white for these wintery mittens. We have snow on the ground for days now, so pretty and I know I'm not in the  majority of people who feel so, but I think Winter should actually be cold with snow. So I'm happy these last few days. Usually in the Pittsburgh PA area, it snows then warms up and thaws with rain. This pattern repeats itself until we are left lots of potholes and no snow. So this year is different and feels right to me. I'm even wearing a scarf to work this year. And to make it even better, scarves are popular now so that I've got many colors to choose from!

But back to cookie baking. We outlined these sugar cookies with a border of light blue piping, then flooded with thinner icing and finished the details with white piping. I'm not sure why blue and white seem so perfect for the winter, but I think they are a very cute and heart-warming cookie.

Valentine's Day 2010

Valentine's Sugar Cookies with  conversation messages were very popular last year as a cute and fun Valentine's Day gift. We like the traditional messages like be mine, say yes, cutie pie etc but this year I'd like to add some new ones. Short and cute but I think we'll be able to update some of the sayings. Text me? Follow me? We'll think of some in time for February 14th.
