“Cookies so good I could cry!”

It’s always nice to receive unsolicited positive feedback from customers. And thankfully, we have a loyal and steadily growing fan base who truly appreciates the love and time we put into our products. While every note of encouragement, thanks and praise, is not only appreciated, but helps to fuel our passion, occasionally we receive a note that move us to tears.

Chestnut Cookies (special order only)

[My wife’s] father called her AGAIN about the cookies. He was almost in tears. I’ll tell you why…

As I’d mentioned to you, [my wife’s] mom used to make the same type of cookie for Xmas using walnuts. They were VERY similar in taste and texture — so light they melted in your mouth. I’d await my holiday deliveries from her every year, and she’d always make an extra batch for me. I’d never before or since found that type of cookie made as well until I tasted yours. They’re so identical it’s uncanny. Anyway, her father said the same thing to [my wife]. He said it feels as if he has her mother’s Xmas cookies again. He’d been trying out different bakeries, but nothing cut it. You did a mitzvah!!”

And that, friends, sums up what we hope you all feel when you take a bite of our treats. We aspire to remind you of happy, possibly simpler, times when a bowl of cookie dough could create fun, laughter and the most wonderful memories.

Holiday hugs from my heart to yours…

For weeks I’ve been mentally and verbally penning a holiday message to send out to all my family, friends and fans. But just now a dear friend posted a picture of her beloved (human) partner on my Facebook page. There he is, Mr. “Banshee Mandolin,” this insanely talented musician and author, grinning puckishly as he snacks on his 18 year old rescue pug, Louis Migitsu Cannonball Dupree’s Alecia Bakery NYC “Canine Cookie Jar” Pumpkin Biscotti! Suddenly, I knew exactly what to say.

It is a simple message full of genuine thanks, honest appreciation and true love from every corner of my heart.

Conventional or unconventional. Raucous or serene. People wall-to-wall or with one adoring friend or furkid. It does not matter how or what you celebrate. What is most important is that you are loved and appreciated by someone today and every day of the year — even if that someone is a crazy little baker in NYC and her adorable tripod pug.

It is with a full heart that I thank each and every one of you for your support and friendship this year. I am a better person for it and continue to grow because of it.

Now go hug someone and share a cookie!

With holiday hugs,

Lin & Lenny the Pug
