Best mail order cookies!

london123 Nov 25, 2009 09:16 AM

Hi Everyone:

My daughter and husband both love cookies and since I'm missing Thanksgiving with them due to illness, I wanted to send them some cookies via mail (they live in Brooklyn, NY). Can anyone recommend the very BEST cookies to order via mail? Thank you for your input and best wishes to all for a nice Thanksgiving.

    The best mail order cookies I have ever had were from Carol's Cookies. http://www.carolscookies.com/ Each cookie weighs 1/2 a pound! They are fabulous.

          We received a sampler pack of cookies from Levain Bakery (http://www.levainbakery.com/cookies/c...) in Manhattan a few Christmases ago and they were very good. I especially liked the chocolate chip. Be forwarned that the cookies are large....each cookie is a whopping 6 ounces.

              Unfortunately, Amai NYC closed in 09. The economy took another wonderful young business woman.

              Fralinger's Almond Macaroons from the Atlantic City boardwalk. They are big, moist, and very almondy. If you are used to dry amaretti from a tin, Fralinger's macaroons will be a revelation.

                  www.marnees.com are great for gifts. my customers always comment on them... but you need to order well in advance if ordering for holidays.
