Cookies by Design

My good friend at work and I have birthdays that are a few weeks apart.  Usually, we take each other out to lunch, but this year she stepped it up a notch by ordering decorated cookies. This immediately started a trend.  I had two weeks to find cookies for her and have them shipped to the office.  With each delivery, we both sampled and gave our opinions.   Now we both have a year to find to new companies to try.

Actually, I’ve already found a new company.  Luckily I was approached by Cookies by Design to try and review one of their cookies bouquets.  Cookies by Design?  I haven’t heard about them in years!  I remember loving their cookies when I lived in Chicago over 10 years ago.  The company I worked for at the time used them constantly, so I made many trips to the shop to get cookies.  I would even buy one or two to add to Miles’ Easter basket.

Since I’m in the market for birthday ideas, I chose the Butterfly and Daisy Birthday bouquet.  It arrived well packed in a large box and was even wrapped in plastic with a bow.

Each cookie was individually wrapped and firmly placed within the “flower” pot.

They were still just as nicely decorated as I remember.  But did they taste any good?  Yes!  The cookies were very thick, yet tender and had a nice chew.  Were they gourmet cookies?  No.  The taste reminded me of a good old-fashioned birthday cake I used to get as a child but in cookie form.  It was very comforting and satisfying.  I was going to keep this a secret and wait until next year to surprise my coworker, but I couldn’t wait and shared a cookie with her.  The cookie never made it to lunch!  I think we both already know what we’re getting each other next year.  If you’d like to check out Cookies by Design click here.
