On Friday, we received a one-pound tin of assorted David’s Cookies. These cookies were definitely our Advent temptation for the week since we do not eat desserts on Fridays. Cookie Monster, aka Ballerina, asked all day Saturday about the cookies waiting on the shelf. Finally, on Sunday after every kiddo had finished every last lima bean on her plate and all of the milk glasses drained, we decided we should try David’s Cookies.
I opened the tin. The kiddos remarked on all of the packaging (there was some bubble wrap on the outside of a plastic baggie and the cookies were wrapped in aluminum foil). I told them that to ship a cookie, one had to be extra careful or all the person would receive would be CRUMBS. This is NOT the case with David’s Cookies. There were NO broken cookies. Every cookie was packed with care.
We opened the aluminum foil and saw twelve of the most gorgeous cookies. Ballerina chose peanut butter; Big Boy chose an oatmeal raisin, and Papa Bear picked a cookie that I’ve never seen before – it had white chocolate chips and cherries! Being the mom, I took the double chocolate chunk cookie. We all were marveling at how BEAUTIFUL the cookies are. (My cookies NEVER look so pretty!) They don’t look like the perfectly round store-bought cookies; rather they look like homemade cookies that are light and delicious. The chocolate chunks are huge, and the cherries in the cherry white chip were whole cherries! David’s Cookies does not skimp on ingredients or quality. And if you know my grocery habits, I am not going to allow any cookie that has preservatives and artificial ingredients into my food. David’s Cookies are made without preservatives, so I know that I am giving my children a cookie as good as any that I can make at home.
The experience only got better. These cookies have the perfect amount of moistness without being gooey. David’s Cookies are fresh; they bake them the night before they ship the cookies.
I am even going to go out on a limb here and say that David’s Cookies has perfected the cookie! And that’s saying a lot since I REALLY love my mom’s chocolate chip cookies.
The one-pound assortment tin holds a variety of cookies including chocolate chunk, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, macadamia white chip, cherry white chip, and double chocolate chunk. The kiddos loved the chocolate chunk cookies. Big Boy savored his by taking the smallest bites ever, while Ballerina, who is in the “FEED ME!” stage, gobbled hers and asked for another! Poor MES; she slept through the first round of cookies and only had one chocolate chunk – but she enjoyed it immensely! (Little do they know that I saved three cookies for after lunch!) You can purchase the one-pound tin for the very reasonable price of $24.95 + $4.95 s/h (and remember that’s two-day shipping so your recipient will receive only the freshest cookies!).
If brownies are more your speed (because who doesn’t love a superb brownie?!), check out the chocolate-enrobed brownies. Don’t they look yummy?
And for my dad who loves all things cheesecake, David’s Cookies makes a gourmet cheesecake that anyone would like to receive.
I know when *birthday season* starts at our house in January, I will be checking out David’s Cookies layer cakes and birthday cakes. Ballerina would LOVE the chocolate fudge celebration cake!
I like the fact that David’s Cookies is a reliable company; they’ve been making yummy desserts since 1979! Their goodies come packaged in a collectible reusable tin with a complimentary gift message. They offer free shipping on many items too.
Papa Bear was SO impressed with David’s Cookies that this morning he is calling a David’s Cookies representative to help him fulfill some corporate gifting that he needs to do in time for Christmas. What a wonderful gift for a company: cookies for everyone! The business gift services process is so simple at David’s Cookies that even my stretched husband will be able to give a quality gift that his customers will remember well into 2012!
Slide on over to David’s Cookies and look at some of their other YUMMY desserts like their tarts or scones. For those far-away friends who you would love to celebrate with, why not send a David’s Cookies gift basket or a monthly gift club subscription? You won’t be disappointed and, they will be impressed with you taste!
Lauralee loves homeschooling her three kiddos: Ballerina, age 8, Big Boy, age 6, and MESS, age 3. She enjoys sewing when she can find a spare corner to set up her machine and dig out fabrics, cooking and baking – especially if the kiddos are helping, and enjoying a good book after the kiddos have gone to bed. She is thrilled to be welcoming a baby girl into the family in March of 2012.
