fudo finds: butter blossoms gourmet cookies
Pomegranates are ever present during the holiday season. The beautiful jewels of this fruit are echoed in the pearl, red crystal sugar that edges the pomegranate white tea cookies baked by Butter Blossoms. The pomegranate white tea cookie is just one of many beautiful cookies created by the mother/daughter team of Shell and Emily, who are Butter Blossoms.
Emily is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University with a Bachelor of Science in Baking and Pastry. She is currently a stay-at-home mother who spent 10 years in the hospitality industry. Emily is joined by her mother, Shell, who is quite talented at making the wonderful cookies the mother/daughter team, known as Butter Blossoms, creates.
Butter Blossoms offers cookies that are delicately enchanting and uniquely flavored. You will find honey fig shortbread cookies that make you want to sit down, put your feet up and enjoy these with a hot cup of tea. Imagine dipping a peppermint mocha shortbread cookie into a cold glass of milk for a refreshing treat after wrapping all those gifts. And, who could possibly resist a warm hot cocoa paired with orange and chocolate chip shortbread cookies.
If you’d like something other than shortbread cookies try the vanilla butter Christmas cookies or the Moroccan mint tea cookies, beautifully edged in green and clear crystal sugar. If the men in your family scoff at delicate cookies just hand them a bacon –chocolate shortbread cookie. Yes, you read that correctly. Butter Blossoms has ingeniously insinuated bacon into a beautifully delicate shortbread cookie.
Butter Blossoms “shop” is light, airy and dreamy. It makes you think of the peaceful hush that you hear when snow gently falls to the ground. You’ll feel like a little girl at a tea party while “shopping”. The subtle details of the superior baker are ever present. Butter Blossoms only uses the finest ingredients for their cookies because they are worthy of only the best. Seeing the flavoring in each cookie makes your mouth water and the aroma of buttery cookies will come to mind.
These melt-in-your mouth cookies come in a variety of packaging, which is your choice. It is noted that even Butter Blossoms labels are remarkably subtle and add to the packaging, not detract. Butter Blossoms will create a joyous package of their cookies in their holiday tin. These tins are adorable and, once filled with your choice of cookies, make a lovely presentation as a hostess gift, teacher’s gift or a little something for your co-workers. Of course, why not buy these cookies for yourself. Set them out on holiday platters and give your guests a choice of tea, coffee or cocoa. Your guests will be delighted as they relax with a hot beverage and a perfectly shaped, impressively flavored, buttery treat from Butter Blossoms.
It is evident that Emily and Shell put a great deal of care, time and effort into all of their cookies. But, it is also quite lovely that this attention to detail extends to the packaging, labeling and the clear, soft, inviting photos they take of their products. They make it extremely simple for you to enjoy the fruits of their labor, which we sincerely hope you will do.
