For over 30 years now, Cookies by Design has have has been delighting customers with freshly baked, hand-delivered cookie bouquets. With over 100 locations across the country, they offer same day delivery on dozens of cookie gift baskets and bouquets for all occasions. (Even if there isn’t a Cookies by Design location near you, they will quickly ship to any location nationwide.)
I was impressed with how much thought was put into the shipping of our bouquet. Our cookie bouquet – a customized version of the Butterfly and Daisy Birthday – arrived in a carefully packed box, wrapped in plastic. (Yay! No broken cookies!)
The colorful, decorated cookies arrive individually shrink-wrapped, with a plastic sleeve stuck to the back with a dowel inserted, allowing the cookie to be securely placed in the base.
I loved the cheery vibe that our Cookies by Design bouquet brought to our home! The colors were bright and vibrant, and it just seemed to make the whole room a little sunnier!
So, the cookies were bright and beautiful, but how did they taste? Cookies by Design makes all their cookies from scratch, but I have to be honest: they weren’t my mom’s sugar cookies. (Nor did I expect them to be.) For reference, like my mom before me, I use the my trusty old Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook sugar cookie recipe. These were slightly less sweet than mine, but not too much so, and I actually think less sweet is better than too sweet, especially considering many of the cookies are completely covered in icing, which just brings more sugar to the party.
The Cookies by Design cookies were also significantly thicker than my homemade cookies – well over a quarter-inch thick – and a bit more solid than I personally prefer. However, I found that when we were ready to actually eat the cookies, just ten seconds in the microwave did a world of good for the texture, bringing them back to a more “freshly baked” feel and softer consistency.
Cookies by Design bouquets are great for any occasion: holidays, birthdays, celebrations, or just to say “I’m thinking of you.” If you take a little time to browse through their website, you may be as surprised as I was at the sheer number of occasions for which they have created cookie bouquets. (I know I was. Did you know that there is a “Father-in-Law day?!? Yep, they’ve even got a bouquet for that one!) You can customize also any bouquet with your own message. Prices start at just $18.99 and go up from there, depending on how many cookies you want in your bouquet.
