STILL A LITTLE HESITANT TO ORDER? THIS IS HERE TO HELP ANSWER ANY FINAL QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE BEFORE YOU ORDER. DON'T HESITATE TO REACH OUT WITH QUESTIONS THAT I HAVE NOT ANSWERED HERE! BY SENDING A QUICK EMAIL, YOU'LL HELP ME AND FUTURE CLIENTS THINK THEIR ORDER THROUGH BEFORE IT'S SET IN PLACE!

TELL ME ABOUT THE COOKIES.

THE COOKIES ARE A SIMPLE SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE THAT ARE ROLLED TO 3/8 INCH THICHNESS. ALL DECORATIONS ARE MADE USING ROYAL ICING.

I NEED COOKIES IN THREE DAYS. CAN YOU HELP ME OUT?

BECAUSE EACH COOKIE IS HAND-CRAFTED AND BAKED TO ORDER, THE SHORTEST NOTICE I NEED IS A WEEK. DUE TO THE TIME IT TAKES TO MAKE THE DOUGH, BAKE THE DOUGH, COOL THE COOKIES, MAKE THE ICING, COLOR THE ICING, DECORATE THE COOKIES, LET THE ICING DRY (MULTIPLE HOURS DEPENDING ON HOW INTRICATE THE DESIGN), BAG AND BOX THE COOKIES, I RECOMMEND PLACING YOUR ORDER AS SOON AS YOU KNOW YOU'LL WANT SARAH BELLE SWEETS TO BE A PART OF YOUR EVENT.

BECAUSE I AM A FULL-TIME TEACHER, SPACE IS LIMITED AND BOOKINGS FILL UP QUICKLY.

WHAT ABOUT ALLERGIES?

UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE COMPOSITION OF THE COOKIE AND THE NEED FOR THE ICING TO SET, I'M UNABLE TO PROVIDE A GLUTEN FREE OPTION AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER, THEY ARE NUT FREE! HERE ARE A FEW INGREDIENTS YOU MAY WANT TO BE AWARE OF:

  • EGGS

  • ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR

  • VANILLA EXTRACT

  • SUGAR

HOW LONG DO DECORATED COOKIES LAST?

SUGAR COOKIES HAVE A PRETTY DECENT SHELF-LIFE. WITH THAT BEING SAID, THE LONGER YOU LET THEM SIT OUT (UNWRAPPED) IN ROOM TEMPERATURE, THE MORE DRY THEY WILL BECOME. WHILE THEY'LL DEFINITELY STILL BE TASTY AFTER THE FOLLOWING TIMEFRAMES, THESE ARE THE TIMES I RECOMMEND EATING THEM UPON RECEIVING THEM:

  • NOT INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED- EAT WITHIN A WEEK

  • INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED- EAT WITHIN TWO WEEKS

  • SHIPPED- EAT WITHIN ONE WEEK

UH, OH! I ORDERED TOO MANY! CAN I SAVE THEM?

WHILE I ALWAYS RECOMMEND EATING THE COOKIES WITHIN THE TIME FRAMES LISTED ABOVE, I'VE HAD CLIENTS WHO HAVE FROZEN COOKIES. IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON HAVING EXTRA AND KNOW YOU'LL WANT TO FREEZE THEM, I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO ORDER THEM INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED. WHILE THIS IS NOT RECOMMENDED,

IF YOU'RE JUST DYING TO HOLD ON TO YOUR FINAL FEW SARAH BELLE SWEETS TREATS, DO THE FOLLOWING:

  1. INDIVIDUALLY WRAP EACH COOKIE (IF NOT DONE SO ALREADY)

  2. PUT THE COOKIES IN A FREEZER-SAFE BAG

  3. PUT THE BAG OF COOKIES IN AN AIR-TIGHT CONTAINER

  4. WHEN YOU'RE READY TO CHOW DOWN, TAKE THE COOKIES OUT OF THE CONTAINER AND THE BAG, AND LET THEM THAW IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL BAGS FOR 24 HOURS.

  5. ENJOY!
