Decorated Cookies-Cookies by Design

  • s

Several weeks ago I posted a message inquiring whether anyone knew of a place where I could find decorated cookies, similar to the ones from Eleni's in NY. Someone suggested Cookies by Design, which is a franchise with locations throughout SoCal. I definitely decided to go with them. The large cookies are $7 each and the smaller ones are $3.50. They will wrap the cookies individually (included in the price) and they are actually going to find a cookie cutter in the shape of a lemon, which is what I was looking for to match the centerpieces for the bridal shower I am hosting. The only do sugar cookies. The woman at the counter was extremely helpful, willing to work within my budget, and excited to make a new shape (they have to track down a lemon cookie cutter). Thanks for everyone's suggestions!

  1. I've used Cookies by Design for gift cookie bouquets for a couple of years now. Different areas, all employees have been helpful and the cookies were of good quality, delivered on time, and fresh (24 hours notice required). It's a nice change from flowers for birthdays, get well messages, etc.

      I recently used them for Valentines Day and for a new baby gift. I love them and will never send flowers again (unless I know the receipent is not a cookie-eater). The customer service is excellent and the bouquets are beautiful.

        You haven't been ordering flowers from the right place! Won't you still send flowers to people who are dieting?

          I have nothing against flowers and like I said, I will send cookies, "unless I know the receipent is not a cookie-eater"

            Don't worry, flowers are still the only option in many cases. For romance or an apology, cookies just don't cut it. Only flowers will do. But sometimes you just need a "bouquet" that satisfies a sweet tooth.
