There’s something about a festive box of cookies arriving at your door that seems to say, “Take a minute, indulge a little and celebrate you.” For 31 years, Cobblestone Kitchen has been serving up special moments like this with delicious mail-order cookies for corporate and personal gifts, parties and events. In 1992, the founder of the Edmond cookie company saw a niche for client appreciation gifts that not many businesses were specifically catering to at the time. Today, under the expert baking skills of owner Emily McCormick, the clever company is flourishing and still serving clients from 30 years ago.
The timing was fortuitous in 2020 when a family friend of Emily’s was retiring and looking for someone to take over Cobblestone Kitchen. Having left her corporate job in the energy industry, Emily was eager for the opportunity to work again. “I missed having my own projects that weren’t kid-related, and I have a personality that loves having tasks to accomplish!” Emily admits. With a penchant for baking since childhood, Emily’s passion quickly became her next project. “The number of cookies we ship each week varies depending on our clients’ schedules, but we average 3,000 cookies per month. In November and December last year, we shipped out 8,000 cookies in the two months. We’ve gotten to know our postal workers very well,” Emily giggles.
Party in a Box
When the stylishly fun boxes of confections show up at an office, even the boss takes a cookie break. It’s like the fresh, homemade taste brings everyone’s inner child out to play. All you need is a glass of milk!
The Original Cobblestone Cookie, their signature flavor since the beginning, is made with two kinds of chocolate, brown sugar, oats and crushed pecans. “All of our cookies are made with real butter and no preservatives,” Emily explains, “which makes them crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle. They’re addictive.”
The other two staple menu options are the Classic Chocolate Chip and the Vegan Chocolate Chip. Emily says, “I try to eat dairy-free most of the time, so having a tasty vegan cookie in my arsenal was a big goal for me.” Mission accomplished! It is fantastic. Signing up for Cookie of the Month is another option, with recipients receiving one dozen of each month’s featured flavor, like Sprinkle Sugar Cookie, Snickerdoodle, Gingersnap or Brown Sugar. “I love experimenting with recipes in the kitchen,” Emily remarks. “My kids keep me humble and remind me when the marshmallows on a test batch of S’mores Cookies caught fire in the oven. Experimenting with recipes is always an adventure!”
Have Cookies, Will Travel
Corporate or personal cookie gifts can be mailed once or on a recurring schedule. Sample boxes of the different cookie varieties, special requests and bulk orders for parties and events aren’t off the table either. If you’re local, pick up and delivery are available too. ”We’ve partnered with car dealerships, real estate agents, insurance companies, law firms and many other companies looking to build their relationships with clients, potential clients and employees,” Emily reflects.
“I truly love building these relationships and helping to provide happiness through cookies.”
