Christmas (Cookies) in July

Decorated Gingerbread Cookies

Things are slow around here in July. So when I have free time in the summer I start thinking of the Holiday Season. It really isn't too early to start planning since we do about 25% of our Business for the year in November and December. Now is the time to dream about new Christmas Cookies and consider new Holiday Gift Packaging. Some items from last year will stay and some will go. The Gingerbread Cookies shown above in our jumbo size ( 5 1/2 inch) will definitely stay. It just wouldn't be the same without the "gingies" as we call them. But what else will be our customers want this Holiday Season?

Decorated Christmas Sugar Cookies

I can't imagine Christmas at Country Cupboard Cookies without a selection of decorated sugar cookies. The Christmas tree, Candy canes, Snowflakes, Stocking, and Christmas Ornaments will stay. We are considering another color palette in additon to classic red & green. Perhaps a wintery white collection with touches of gold? Maybe a collection of vintage colors with muted shades? Or sparkly silver and blue? These are all things we daydream about in the summer.

Snowman sugar Cookies

Winter Wonderland Sugar Cookies

 A winter wonderland collection of cute gingerbread houses, sugar snowflakes and snowmen with mittens was popular last year. We most likely will bring this collection back.

Shortbread Cookies for Christmas

Shortbread Cookies for the Holiday Season

Shortbread Cookies have always been one of my favorites. Simply delicious with butter, sugar, vanilla and unbleached flour. I'm thinking a few new flavors this year? Orange slice shortbread? Buttery Pecan shortbread? We would love to hear from you with any ideas or flavors you would like to see this Holiday season, 2013.
