How do Cookies by Design cookies taste? What is the texture and flavor like? I've always wanted to do a taste test, but never wanted to pay $8 for one cookie.

We work with volume recipes and when I want to use them at home, I downscale them without a recipe calculator. I never even though about that. I guess that would be quick and easy.

millicente,

We're all dying for the recipes. Please share. I'm especially interested in their frosting. Thanks! icon_smile.gif

I'm interested in how they actually arrange their COOKIES and tissue paper...

I'd love to "get my hands on" that manual icon_redface.gif

I've had them before and honestly they're not very tasty. They are 1/2 inch thick and very crunchy with little taste. Like eating a crunchy cardboard box. They focus on the decorating rather than the "whole package" of taste and beauty. That's the first thing I teach my students -- if your creation is gorgeous and tastes like cardboard -- you've done it WRONG! icon_rolleyes.gif

Thanks for your response "Bobwonderbuns." I guess I haven't missed much by not trying them.

I don't remember how or where I found it, but a few years ago I found the "Cookie Bouquet" cookie recipe online. Do some googling and you may find it.

I just recently bought a CbyD cookie for "research" and it was horrible. Like someone said, it's too crunchy, bland and just overall tastes like it came from a huge factory that pumps out cookies with no regard to flavor. Blech.

I have kind of come to that conclusion. The cookie recipes that hold their shape and have crisp shapes, don't taste as good. At least that has been my experience. My favorite sugar cookie tastes great, but spreads to much, they don't look as pretty. The nfsc recipe doesn't taste that good to me, but it looks pretty. Oh well.

I recently signed up for Cookies by Design email offers (it's near the top on their home page) because I like to check out their designs. The first email that they sent me contained a coupon for a free cookie.

Well, I have not tried one personally, but boy, have they helped me. Not to try to sound odd here, but people who have tried mine after having theirs rave over how mine taste in comparison. I am afraid the taste in their cookies might be lacking. Very cute design concepts though and I know that a lot of people here want to know how they do their icing, but it sounds like the cookie itself might not be too spiffy.

I don't know about their recipes, or how they arrange or anything . . . but I wouldn't franchise with them if they were the last place on the face of the planet. You know why you have to charge $8/cookie? Have you seen their franchise fees???? You have to charge that much if you can even dream of ever turning a profit!

I inquired into a franchise a while back. It took them forever to even respond. Needless to say, I didn't pursue it much further than that. No thank you to a company that treats potential franchisees like a thorn in their side.

I stopped by their location in Las Vegas.
Unfornutaly, it was close (Sunday... here shps aren't close on sundays..)
I was dispointed because I wanted to taste one of the cookies..
But I've seen their "showroom" from the outside..
I wasn't impress at all !! They look so much better on the website! The decorations on the cookies, wasn't delicate and I don't like how the icing was looking.. And the cookies was so thick!
Well, it boost my confidence in my cookies so much..lol!!!
