Many of these cookies from Generations of Cookies I remember from our mom making them each Christmas for all of her six children. She would pack large tins with chocolate-dipped yule logs (my favorite), walnut cups, lace cookies, snickerdoodles, thumbprint cookies, of course the same yummy chocolate chips and oatmeal butterscotch, along with Hershey kisses for good measure. Generations of Cookies brings back so many memories of our mother and her love for all of us.
I have a long list of ‘favorite’ cookies. Among them are chunky peppermint fudge dreams, chocolate dipped yule logs, white chocolate pistachio, double chocolate chunks, macadamia white chocolate cookies, chocolate espresso walnut, peanut butter cups and walnut melts. All de-lic-ious !!!
I have had the pleasure of tasting some all-time favorites from Generations of Cookies like the oatmeal, chocolate chips, lace cookies, cinnamon dreams, snickerdoodles, as well as some other special ones like maple oatmeal, chocolate dreams, almond sweets and peanut gems. Couldn’t pick a favorite since they were all great! My wife doesn’t make too many cookies anymore, so I was particularly happy with all of these "special" treats.
Some of these cookies bring back sweet memories of baking neighborhood-sized batches of snickerdoodles with my mother on a chilly, wet November day. Others are homespun miracles of sugar, butter, chocolate, nuts and flour, each one gorgeous to look at, no two alike – and each a mouthful of delight!
This cookie company is awesome! My favorites are the raspberry filled and the pistachio. They always arrive promptly and are wrapped very nicely. My family usually fights over who gets to eat the last one.
I can’t say enough good things about these cookies. They’re always very fresh and taste great. I love trying all the new kinds of cookies and haven’t found one yet that I didn’t like.
I have always loved cookies and these cookies are, by far, the best I have ever tasted!! They are individual works of art for the cookie connoisseur.
I admit it, I’m a cookie snob. I grew up on cookies that were warm from the oven, freshly made with pure ingredients by mom’s own hands. A "store bought" cookie person I am not and I usually pass right by them when even in the best of bakeries. But then one recent Christmas I received a lovely gift, a tin of cookies. Normally I would put the tin on the sideboard and when visitors come by I’d offer them some cookies and eventually the tin would be empty. I’d always try at least one, but I must say, they never came close to the real thing for me and I was never even tempted to have another.
But something different happened this time – I opened up the tin and this incredible aroma filled the air. It was the smell of freshly baked cookies. I must say, I was a bit taken aback and I did a double take. There were various different cookies to choose from in the tin, I picked one up and took a taste. To my astonishment it was absolutely incredible. That cookie melted in my mouth. It wasn’t sickeningly sweet like most cookies I had ever tried and the flavors were incredible and each cookie was beautiful to look at. My curiosity was peaked and I tried another and another and another until finally half the tin of cookies was gone. The thought came to me that although these looked so "professional" was it possible that the sender had made them herself?
I searched the tin and wrapping for a company name or something, found none, and picked up the phone. To make a long story short, my dear friend was indeed going into the cookie business with recipes that spanned decades of her family history. And so it is with great delight that I, the cookie snob, look forward to not only sending these wonderful delicacies as gifts throughout the year, but to hoarding some for myself from time to time. Needless to say, that first tin was empty by noon the following day – for goodness sake, I even ate the crumbs!!!
