So why not give one or more of these ideas a try? You may find yourself loving your cookie subscription even more.
Get creative in the kitchen
While simple recipes like cookie bars and ice cream sandwiches are delicious classics, there are other dishes you can make with your cookies. Why not get creative and come up with your own unique recipe? Add crushed cookies to muffin batter or top a casserole with cookie crumbs. The possibilities are endless.
Getting creative in the kitchen with your cookies can also be a great way to get kids involved. Have them help you mix, measure, and bake up some delicious treats.
Enjoy as a snack
Cookies make a great snack, especially if you’re in the mood for something sweet. Instead of reaching for store-bought snacks, indulge in freshly baked cookies from your subscription.
If you’re trying to eat healthier, opt for whole grain or healthier sweetener options. You can also look for recipes that reduce sugar and use natural sweeteners like dates or honey.
Have a cookie-themed party
What better way to celebrate the wonderful world of cookies than to throw a cookie-themed party? Whether you’re hosting a kids’ birthday party, a baby shower, or want an excuse to get together with friends, a cookie-themed party will surely be a hit.
Set up a cookie buffet featuring your subscription cookies and offer guests the opportunity to decorate their own. You can also have everyone bring along their favorite recipes and share them.
Share the sweetness with friends and family
When it comes to gift-giving, cookies make a great present. Share your delicious subscription cookies with friends and family for special occasions. You can also pair them with other items like hot chocolate mix or gourmet coffee beans for an extra special treat.
Sharing with family and friends is also a great way to get more mileage from your cookie subscription. Instead of eating all the cookies, you can spread the love (and sweetness).
Make cookie-themed gift baskets
Some great themed gift basket ideas include a movie night basket (complete with popcorn and cookies), a picnic basket, or even a tea party basket.
Create custom cookies for your special occasions
Why not add a personal touch to your special occasions with custom cookies? Depending on the occasion, you can create personalized shapes and designs with cookie cutters or use edible markers to decorate store-bought cookies. You can add flair using specialty frostings, sprinkles, and other decorations. It’s fun to add an extra special touch to any celebration.
Decorating with cookies is a great way to spruce up any event. You can use them to create edible centerpieces for tables or use them as cake toppers for birthdays and other special occasions. You can also decorate cupcakes and cakes with cookie crumbs or shapes. Just be sure to get creative.
Another great way to decorate is to create cookie bouquets. Arrange your cookies into a creative pattern or design, and add festive decorations like ribbons, baubles, and fabric. The possibilities are endless.
Create a cookie dough tower
If you’re looking for a fun dessert to serve at your next gathering, why not try a cookie dough tower? All you need is pre-made cookie dough, colorful sprinkles and decorations, and other items. Layer the cookie dough in alternating colors in a tall glass jar or bowl and top it off with a few festive decorations.
You could always use the leftover cookie dough to make delicious cookies or give your guests a scoop of cookie dough to take home.
Pair with coffee or tea
Finally, cookies are a perfect complement to coffee and tea. Enjoy a freshly brewed cup of your favorite beverage with a few subscription cookies for an after-dinner treat, or indulge in some much-needed “me time.” It’s the perfect way to enjoy some delicious baked goods without all the hassle of baking them yourself.
Pairing cookies with coffee or tea is also a great way to impress your guests at your next gathering. The combination of flavors will be sure to leave a lasting impression.
