We love making cookies that embody goodness! We also thrive on the feedback we receive and appreciate the kind words we hear back from the cookie deliveries. A deep bow of thanks to everyone who takes the time to help make us better.
After the busy month of February, we wanted to share with our friends and clients a behind the scenes look at what is involved in making our unique gifts.
Suffice to say the making of a Better Cookies gift takes time. And, we take care every step of the way! From the mixing of the dough in small batches to preparing the gift for delivery, we put in the effort to make it special.
What does that mean? We took a look after Valentine’s Day to track the time it takes to make an individual gift. While it varies between the cookie gift box, cookie gift basket, cookie bouquet, cookie jar and the giant cookie gram here is what we found for a gift basket we delivered in Burlington, Ontario.
The making of a cookie gift basket
- Making the gourmet cookies in our unique way in small batches – 20 minutes
- Baking the cookies in the oven – 10 minutes
- Letting them cool – 1 hour
- Packaging them up with care – 14 minutes
- Giving thanks to our awesome couriers – 1 minute
From start to finish it takes us 45 minutes to create one of our iCare cookie gifts baskets and 1 hour and 45 minutes with cooling time. The giant cookie grams take even longer as we have to frost them and put on the custom inscription.
Every one is unique and made special.
So the next time you order a Better Cookies gift, you’ll know that you are sending a gift made through time with deep respect. We are a small business, and our belief is that every recipient is special and deserves that special touch.
We recently heard back from two kind people who took the time to share what their gift recipient thought of the cookies.
My boy said it was the best cookie ever! Will definitely order from you again!
I did get to try it and it was yummy and soft.
We hope you all are enjoying the extended thaw in the GTA. Walking the dog and going on a run is so much easier with the sidewalks clear. Spring is on its way albeit very slowly… The sun is shining and it is a great day.
Make it awesome!
