With the holidays coming up (Watch in the coming weeks for a list of top cookies gifts!), I wanted to share an easy holiday gift option with you. Gecko Cookies makes all of their desserts fresh daily (made to order only) and has a super-friendly staff to help with suggestions.
When I created my own "Confection by the Dozen" box, I tried:
Butter Shortbread- light and slightly buttery and sweet
Chocolate Chip- very few chocolate chips, but a great brown sugar base, slightly crispy
Oatmeal Butterscotch Coconut- chewy and dense, somewhat salty base worked well with the sweet butterscotch chips- my favorite
Canyon Cookie- like a ranger cookie with chocolate chips, dried cherries, and coconut- the cherries were a little large for my liking, but overall a great cookie
Snickerdoodle- lots of cinnamon sugar, great cookie for kids
Peanut Butter- a somewhat sandy texture, but a balanced peanut butter flavor
Lemon Sugar- slight lemon flavor, crispy
Nutella Fudge Brownies- didn't taste nutella, but it was super fudgy
Treats are $2.25 a piece. Their website (www.geckocookies.com) has a variety of lovely gift boxes, too.
