May's Cookie-of-the-Month: Rubies and Pearls! It is our version of the classic white chocolate macadamia nut cookie! We use the rare sought-after Ruby chocolate! Ruby chocolate is the latest discovery and has been dubbed the "fourth" chocolate. The Ruby cacao bean bean produces a natural pink hue with a berry-like note. In addition to the Ruby chocolate, we also use our organic base and add the freshest macadamia nuts we can source!
Order by April 29th to get this box!
Q: This box looks like so much fun! Is there a nut-free version available?Asked by Sarah R., April 2020
Hi Sarah! We do not yet have a nut-free version available. We do plan on providing more options in the future once we can get a facility with multiple dedicated rooms. We do pack the nuts separately so you can choose to not add them, however, we cannot guarantee that it is nut-free as all of our ingredients are packed in the same area.
Q: What ingredients will I need to have on hand (oil, butter, eggs, etc)?Asked by Denise D., March 2020
Hi Denise! We will send the ingredients needed with each box. It will usually be any perishable ingredients. Unsalted butter, large eggs are in most recipes. Once-in-a-while, we'll have recipes that need whole milk, cream cheese, or any fruits/vegetables for that month. We also recommend using organic ingredients if possible for the best flavor.
Q: Is there any way to get a lactose free box? Or even a way to substitute ingredients with lactose? Even like a card with what might work as a dairy substitute for the recipe would work. Asked by Lauren C., March 2020
Hi Lauren! We do not offer a lactose free box. We have not yet tested our recipes using dairy alternatives or substitute ingredients. Some of our customers have successfully experimented and substituted ingredients from our boxes, but we cannot guarantee they will taste the same. Also, to note, we pack all of our ingredients in the same area and cannot guarantee allergen-free ingredients.
Q: In addition to the cookie packs, does the kit include a recipe to be able to make the cookies at a later date?Asked by Heidi I., December 2019
The cookie crates do not come with the actual recipe. The reasoning
behind this is due to the way we source our ingredients. Many of the
ingredients that we use are gourmet ingredients for businesses or
artisanal handcrafted ingredients. The recipes would not have the
awesome tastes we've curated if translated into easily sourced products.
We will stock past cookie mixes by itself in the cookie shop usually a
month or so after the crate ships. We are also thinking about recreating
the recipes to work for a home baker. We'll post up more info on our
social media sites once we figure out a plan. Please let us know if you
have any more questions that we could help with. Have a great...
Very cute. Everything is written out clearly and the surprises are super cute
Everything is wonderful but its only one dozen cookies. I did not have any batter left after filling in the circles on the provided baking mat
Hi Tara! We are super sorry for the confusion. The circles are there as a guide to where to place the cookies to keep them from touching each other, for cookies that don't spread (like macarons), and as a general idea on how big they would be after baking. The circles on the baking mat are 2 inches in size. Since batter spreads and rises as they bake, a 1" to 1.5" ball (depending on the recipe) will spread to fill out those circles.
Bought this for my daughter. Such a cute box! First box included cookie socks, a candle, silicone baking mat and more!!
This was my first box and I was very pleasantly surprised! I enjoyed the theme and the cookies are great! My only complaint is that my cookies, while edible, are not photogenic. But live and learn!
OH MY GOSH... what a fantastic box. We got this for our son's 20th birthday and they worked with me to get it here earlier than their normal shipping schedule to allow us to give it to him on time. They even included a gift note AND our birthday note to him beautifully written and decorated :-)
This box is packed full of fun/themed items on top of the tasty recipe and all the dry ingredients needed to make it. They even sent the wearable appropriately sized for a guy, which was AMAZING! I am so glad I chose this bakery box!!! And, most importantly, our son LOVED it. Thank you so much for this awesome box, Fresh Baked Cookie Company <3
I ordered the 4 dozen box and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the ingredients. Everything was vacuum sealed individually to ensure freshness. The candle smells incredible and the other little surprises were very nice. I baked up one batch to test and glad I did. The cookies, although yummy, were completely flat and thin. Since we live in a high altitude area, I will need to make some adjustments to the recipe besides lowering the temperature to 325°. For the next 2 dozen, I plan on adding a bit more flour and some baking powder. Also, the marshmallows stuck to the sheet making them near impossible to remove. I will correct this by adding them to last minute of baking time. Otherwise, they are tasty and super easy to make.
Thank you so much for your review Donna! We're so happy that you loved the surprises this month. Unfortunately science gets a little bit in the way with making it totally fool-proof. We did send out an email FAQ with the altitude adjustments as well as many other tips and tricks. If you didn't get it, please add our email address to the approved list as some email clients have been sending our emails to the spam box. :( We did mention the marshmallows needed to be away from the edge on the instruction sheet, but we promise to try and explain it clearer next time to avoid the stickiness. We love feedback like this so we can make things perfect for y'all!
I absolutely loved the flavor of this cookie!! Unfortunately, I proceeded with recipe I received before I found the email explaining the corrected amount of butter used. This resulted in one large sheet of thin cookies. Still tasted awesome, but difficult to remove and cool.
Hi Shelly! We are totally sorry you didn't get the message in time! For the troubles, we applied a coupon that will automatically activate on your next renewal. Hope you have a warm and cozy weekend!
Disappointed. This was my first box. While I was making it, the batter never looked quite right. Too runny. Cookies ended up spreading out in oven and making a cookie pancake. Looked nothing like pic. Turns out, recipe was incorrect. The company sent a letter in mail alerting customers on 12/7, but I didn’t get it in mailbox until a week later. So it was way too late. I feel like the company should send us a complimentary box since we couldn’t even make the correct recipe.
HI Katie. Due to the error by our printing company, we sent out the incorrect recipe. We tried our best to fix the situation by immediately emailing our customers, twice. We also posted on all of three our social media accounts, our website, as well as sent out the mailed letter that you received. In all those letters we apologized for the error. We also included our email address and asked you to contact us so we can rectify the problem. We have not received an email or message from you and are saddened that you would give us a 2 star rating before giving us a chance to fix things. We will always fix any errors if given the chance. For your inconvenience, we...
The snickerdoodles are terrific! I was a little intimidated by the burnt butter but I watched the video and it was very easy. I followed the directions, including the suggestion to bake a trial cookie first to test the oven temperature, etc. The cookies turned out great. I used the Silpat mat from the December box on one of the cookie sheets and parchment paper lining on the second. It was amazing how much better the cookies on Silpat looked and tasted.
My daughter bought this for her son and I bought him a different baking subscrition box. This one had a lot more to offer for the same money.
