The directions were not the greatest. I’m an experienced baker and cook. I’ve subscribed to quite a few meal kit services. The way the steps were laid out were somewhat confusing. I started preheating and prepping but then realized the filling needed refrigeration for quite a while to get the right consistency. So, I turned off the oven and refrigerated my dough. Other than that, everything was top notch. Loved the extras and the packaging. Oh, did I mention the cookies were scrumptious?
I received my first box a couple weeks ago which consisted of some great surprises - a T-Shirt; a pot holder; measuring spoons but was missing the silicone baking sheet for new customers. The items were a pleasant surprise. The recipe - Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip cookies - was easy to follow and had the essential items to make approximately 24 very yummy cookies. Great box!! I am excited for the next one.
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!
