All Butter Shortbread Cookies: individual flavors packaged in seasonally tagged gift bags, 8-cookies in a tube for $6. Also available in gift bags of choose-your flavors: two 8-cookie tubes for $12 or four 8-cookie tubes for $24.
My special gift boxes of 24 cookies for $15 (3 each of all 8 flavors) are a wonderful gift for those special occasions - think birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, Mother’s and Father’s Days or when you just want to give a certain someone a wonderful taste treat. As with the packaged tubes, I create my own seasonal tags and use ribbons and ties in shades of reds, oranges, purples and greens.
If you don’t need gift packaging, cookies are also available in simple boxes by the dozen at $7/dozen or $6.50/dozen for 4 dozen or more. Choose your flavors! Perfect for the dessert table or simply to have on hand with your afternoon tea. Remember - they keep well in the fridge for weeks and freeze well too.
