I have a confession to make – I cannot bake to save my life. Seriously. Even those pre-made cookies where all you need to do is put them on a cookie sheet and bake them, I tend to mess up (even when I follow the directions to a “T”). Sigh…
I love freshly made cookies, most especially homemade ones. My sister bakes THE BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. I loved nothing more than indulging in her cookies fresh out of the oven. Yum! I miss those days.
Normally the cookies my family and I eat come from a box or are mass produced (brand name ones found in grocery stores). I’m NOT saying that those types of cookies are not delicious (my are!), but they can’t compare to freshly made ones.
Once in a while I’ll pick up some cookies at the local bakery, but the bakery is not close by, so I only go on special occasions or if I happen to be in the area.
Cookies make great gifts. Trust me, if my co-worker gifted me a box of her homemade cookies, I would be thrilled.
A brand called Maya’s has a wonderful gift idea – a Cookie Love Subscription Club.
Each month the Cookie Love Club Box will contain:
6 Cookies Total:
• 4 – 3 oz. cookies will be a hand-picked mix of our favorite seasonal flavors
• 2 – 3 oz. cookies will be exclusive flavors only available to Cookie Love Club members!
BONUS GIFTS! In addition to the cookies, you will also receive a piece of Maya’s Cookies merch! Limited edition stickers, pins, super cute patches and more.
Each cookie is individually wrapped.
If anyone is feeling generous, feel free to subscribe to the club for me. LOL!
Maya’s Cookies was kind enough to send me several (yes, several) of their cookies.
To say these cookies are delicious is an understatement. These cookies taste A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
I was sent the following cookies (their “Sampler Collection”).
- Chocolate Chip S’mores
- Classic Chocolate Chip
- Birthday Cake
- Marble Fudge
First and foremost, these cookies are HUGE. I was surprised at how big they are. You could easily share this cookie with another person (not that anyone wants to share cookies – ha ha).
I’m a big “meanie” because when my kids asked to eat the cookies, I told them they could have a “sample” because “I” needed to review them. I shared… but most of the cookies were for me.
What I love about these cookies is that they taste freshly made. They do not taste like mass produced cookies. These taste just like grandma (or my sister) would make. I should have warmed up the classic chocolate chip cookie. I bet it would have tasted just like the ones my sister makes. Mmmm!
Founded in 2015 by Maya Madsen, Maya’s Cookies is America’s #1 Black-Owned Gourmet Vegan Cookie Company. As a vegan with a sweet tooth, she had not been able to find that perfectly delicious, soft-baked gourmet vegan cookie, so she spent years crafting her award-winning and crowd-pleasing recipes. From the classic to unique and forward-thinking flavors such as “Chocolate Chip S’mores” and “Marble Fudge”, every flavor has a story grounded in Maya’s travels, memories, and experiences. Alongside providing the highest quality product that appeals to everyone, Maya’s Cookies is committed to superior customer service and community engagement, with a focus on youth and underserved communities. Maya’s Cookies ships nationwide- simply order as a treat for yourself or as a gift.
Oh yes! I plan on “gifting” myself some more of these cookies after the holidays are oven and bills are paid off.
These cookies are vegan, and you would never know it. Sometimes vegan food leaves a lot to be desired, but not these cookies. If I didn’t tell you that they were made out of vegan ingredients, you would never know it. That is pretty impressive if you ask me.
You don’t have to subscribe to the brand’s cookie club. You can buy individual flavor cookies (6 of the same flavor), or you can order (or gift) one of their collections which include a variety of flavors.
There is also a Deluxe Holiday Tin worth checking out, which comes with eight cookies (two each of the four flavors).
Maya’s Cookies also has gluten-free options available.
