Treat Yourself to Homemade Cookies

Homemade cookies make me happy for so many reasons. Biting into a decadent, fresh-baked cookie evokes warm memories of the delicious after-school snacks my mother used to prepare. And who among us doesn’t love chocolate?

While I enjoy baking, I’m a busy woman with family, work and volunteer commitments. It’s hard to find the time to prepare cookies from scratch for special occasions or as gifts for loved ones. So when I want gourmet cookies, I get gourmet cookies delivered. 

David’s Cookies has competitive prices and free shipping on every order. But more importantly, the cookies are so scrumptious that you’ll find yourself eating the leftover crumbs out of the tin. 

My husband favors the Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookie, which is loaded with dark and milk chocolate chunks and real mini Hershey’s Kisses. I’m a fan of the S’Mores Decadent Cookie, which reminds me of happy days at Girl Scout Camp. My mother-in-law adores the Peanut Butter Chunk Cookies. Made with Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips and topped with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, these are the tastiest peanut butter cookies around. But my cookie-traditionalist parents prefer the Classic Chocolate Chunk and the Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

When I need a gift for a friend, David’s Cookies are the perfect choice since they are affordable and delicious. I send them to out-of-town friends on their birthdays and to new moms who need a pick-me-up and to my consulting clients. And I always get an enthusiastic response from the recipient.

Want It:

A two pound tin of cookies will normally run you $33.95 (shipping is free), but you can save $5 on all orders over $29 at David’s Cookies with coupon code HWNLS529A. (Coupon expires 10/31/08.)

    Ok, after telling everyone I knew for 30-some odd years that I hate cheesecake, I bought one for my husband for his birthday (he loves it) and forced myself to have a nibble. Then another nibble. And I found out that I do, in fact, really love cheesecake… if it’s good. In celebration, I would like to get the triple chocolate cheesecake!
