You guys! Look at these adorable cookies!! I went to pick them up today from Laura’s Custom Cookies located in Dale City (Princedale Section). Laura offers homemade, beautifully decorated cookies for any occasion, but right now I thought it’d be fun to do a back-to-school theme. I know we’re not all really going “back to school” the way we normally do, but since we homeschool I’ve made it a first day tradition to give my kids a little special treat on our first day, and these cookies would be amazing for any kid, or maybe a favorite teacher who is going all out with distance-learning for the first time and could use some encouragement, too!
We’ve had custom decorated cookies before, and they really have been hit or miss. Sometimes they’re cute but you can’t eat them without a giant mug of hot tea to rehydrate the cookie. Sometimes they’re delicious, but not that well-decorated. But Laura’s Custom Cookies were both adorable AND a fantastic texture. I tried to take a picture so you could see the crumb texture and that they were dense but moist- they reminded me of the buttery vanilla flavor of Panera shortbread, but they were much moister in your mouth, like a really good sugar cookie.
Laura’s Custom Cookies is on Facebook and Instagram, but you can also email orders. While we chose a back to school theme this time, her insta is full of adorable themes to match the requests of any customer. I really liked this summer birthday them set!
Or maybe you have a COVID-delayed celebration coming up- Laura also does custom cookies for graduations, weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, really anything you can think of! Her pictures have everything from baby shark to guitars to themes for various schools and people’s names and monograms.
As a bonus!! Head on over to our Facebook.com/PwcMoms page and leave us a note with your favorite cookies from Laura’s Custom Cookies’ Instagram page, and enter to win your own box of beautiful and delicious treats! But hurry- they’re individually wrapped, but we wouldn’t want them to go stale on you, so this contest will only last a day!
