Birthday Cookies

It's nice to enjoy a Birthday Cake on your birthday, but if it's not possible to have a cake delivered, I think homemade, gourmet birthday cookies will fit the bill for sweets on the special day. Birthday Cookie Gifts wrapped with bright and cheerful colors of tissue paper and colorful ribbons will also help to create a birthday gift memorable. I especially like a new item we're offering online called the Birthday Bakery Box. The chocolate brown gift box includes a sampling of fresh baked homemade cookies, buttery shortbread in assorted flavors, wonderful, homey chocolate brownies and a sweet decorated Happy Birthday Cookie. Tied with our new birthday ribbons in shades of blue and cream , we can ship this gift anywhere in the US and it arrives in 2-3 Business Days!

Cookies for Mom

Cookies for Mom, Sister, Aunt, Grandma, Nana, daughter, daughter-in-law. Did I miss anyone?

Fashion and Cookies for Mother's Day

We've started coming up with ideas for our Mother's Day Cookie Collections. Shoes and handbags are most popular with most Moms. And who doesn't enjoy flowers? So we've put together a set of sweets in the yummy colors of chocolate brown and pretty pink for a Mother's Day cookie set that I think any Mother would enjoy and get a kick out of! I myself am not a shoe fanatic, but these cookies make me want to go shopping.

Come On Pens, We know you can do it!

Cookie Baking Tip

One of my pet peeves is Chocolate chip cookies that are too flat. Some people enjoy a flat crispy chocolate chip cookie, but I think the perfect one is thick and chunky, but also moist and chewy on the inside with lots of  chocolate! I want to taste the chocolate but also the butter.
Want Chocolate Chip Cookies that are thick and chewy? The perfect chocolate chip cookie is in the eye of the beholder  ( or tastebuds I guess)  but try chilling your dough for 24 hours. Make sure that you cover the dough with saran wrap or foil or just put in a covered container, then refrigerate. You may find it easier to scoop the cookies first then place in a ziplock bag and refrigerate. When it's time to bake the cookies, just take out your cookie dough balls & place on your parchment covered cookie sheet to thaw just for 10 minutes while the oven is heating. Bake as usual, maybe even 5 to 10 degrees lower if your dough is still cold. Watch closely, the cookies may brown sooner. The chilling does 2 things, it allows time for the butter in the cookie ( you are using butter aren't you? ) to coat the flour well providing a better flavor and also the butter is solidified, so that the liquid in the butter does not add to the flattening of the cookie.
