Frequently Asked Questions

Are the cookies individually sealed?

Yes, each cookie is individually heat sealed in a high oxygen barrier bag.

How long do the cookies last?

The cookies will last 2-3 weeks on the counter if the bag is unopened. A great tip is to freeze right away, what you will not enjoy in the first few days and this will prolong the shelf life several months if cookies are put in the freezer right away.

Do you recommend putting the cookies in the refrigerator to keep fresh?

The cookies do best in the freezer or on the shelf. We do not recommend refrigerating them. 

How long until the cookies arrive?

We bake and ship the cookies three days a week. From the time of shipping the cookies time varies by service selected, carrier and where they are shipping to

We are a tiny bakery and limited to how many cookies we can make a day. Each small batch is hand rolled and not machine made. This is what makes our cookies special. When the shipping slots fill up, our website will automatically roll over to the next available day that has an open shipping availability.
