Relocating to a new state as we have, you tend to have vivid memories of foods no longer available to you. One of my favorite cookies was sold at a local bakery in California and in the past I had emailed them to purchase said cookies but, they never did get back to me....I take it back, they did and even agreed and then when it came time to send payment? No response so of course, no cookies.
The cookies this bakery made were sugar cookies with a thick layer of hardened icing. They were so good, extremely sweet and expensive. Let me add that these were so sweet that if you had any opened cavities? You were doomed for days in pain. I couldn't resist though!
I never could locate another cookie that I enjoyed indulging in until now. Recently, I won a dozen Heart Smiley cookies from Smileycookies.com through a fellow blogger named Kimberly at She Scribes. I fell in love with the cookies and contacted Smileycookie.com who has agreed to sponsor a giveaway! (Thank you!)
The dozen Heart smiley cookies came in a secure, plastic container just as you would find in the bakery section of the supermarket. No cardboard box as a local bakery which made these soft and fresh when they arrived on my doorstep. The package of cookies were wrapped in bubble wrap to help keep them from breaking during shipment. (I recycled the bubble wrap!)
I couldn't wait to taste these cookies so instead of setting them aside for dessert after dinner, I opened the cookies and passed one to each of my children as well as myself. The cookie was slightly buttery with hardened icing and the "smile" made me smile as my mouth watered.
To make a long story short, these cookies are delicious! I enjoyed and savored every bite. One thing that I love about the Smiley Cookies would have to be the fact that they are not overly sweet. I believe that I have found a new favorite cookie and with the cost of only $9.99 a dozen? I will definitely be ordering some in the near future. Did I mention that these heart shaped cookies were huge? They are worth every penny. I am not alone, just check out the rave reviews under the Smiley Cookies!
A tidbit of information that was included in my package of cookies, you can also find it posted on the website:
How long will Smiley Cookies stay fresh?
As long as they remain in a sealed container, your Smiley Cookies should remain fresh for about a week. They will lose freshness more quickly if left out. However, 20-30 seconds in the microwave will "refresh" a hardened cookie. Additionally, if you’d like to preserve your cookies longer, they can be wrapped and stored in the freezer.
Smiley Cookies contain the following allergens: wheat, soy, egg, and milk.
All of our items are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
If you are not 100% satisfied with your order, we will be happy to refund or replace your items
