I love eating cookies. I love baking cookies. Most of all I love giving cookies! Whenever I need a gift for someone, I go to Food52. This is how I discovered the CookieBox™. What better gift this holiday than making your own cookie kit in a CookieBox™?!
I discovered this box a few months ago when I needed just the right gift for Strudel’s birthday. She had just finished telling me that before we went to the International Food Blogger Conference in Sacramento, she had made a batch of cookies for her partner to enjoy while she was away for the weekend. As I browsed Food52 I found CookieBox™ and as a result I knew she needed one for her cookie storage.
You might ask, a box just for cookies? I ask, why not?! This isn’t just any old box, it’s a handcrafted pine box made in the US. Not only is there the CookieBox™, there’s the PieBox™ and CakeBox™ too. The leather straps come from right here in Denver! Even better, last month, I entered a giveaway contest on Instagram @piebox and won! Now Strudel has a CookieBox™ and a PieBox™ for all her baking adventures!
So the holidays are here and as I pondered what to give to friends this year, I thought why not give them each a CookieBox™ with a handmade cookie making kit inside?! Ghirardelli chocolate chips were on sale at my grocery store (yes, I bought 8 bags) so I really had to make these kits! I used the recipe from the back of the semi-sweet chip bag to create these kits.
Strudel and Streusel are two friends living in different cities, sharing a love of baking (and butter) through this blog. With Streusel in Denver, and Strudel in Seattle, we've found our little site to be a great way to stay in touch, share recipes we love, and talk about experiences in our respective cities.
