Smiley Cookie Review and Giveaway

Around my house, everyone loves cookies.  Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Sugar, we love them all.  I make cookies quite often, whether it be just for the fun of it or for some church function, school function, or benefit, I have fun baking cookies.  The oldest and I really enjoy making cookies together especially around Christmas time.  I remember the good old days of grandma cookies tons of cookies in her little kitchen, making several different kinds and each and every batch made my hand.  I loved living with her, she was always baking up something delicious.  My father in law used to make my favorite cookies all of the time: Butterscotch Chip cookies.  I don't know what he did to them, but they were always delicious and he would make special batches of them just for me.  He baked a lot of cookies for the holidays and after he passed away, my hubby and I took over for a couple of years and made all of the cookies that he used to bake.  We never realized just how much work he actually took into baking all of those cookies until we did it ourselves.  My girls really love the cute and colorful cookies, you know the ones with all of the frosting and different colored sprinkles.  I found some really great cookies that my girls would absolutely love from Smiley CookieSmiley Cookie has a great variety of cookies that not only have the obviously smiley faces, but they have Bunny cookies for Easter, flower cookies for Mother's Day, shamrock cookies for St. Patrick's Day and many more varieties to put an obvious smile on your kids and especially your faces.  I was sent a dozen of the Original Smiley Cookies in a variety of different colored frosting and cute little smiling faces.  My oldest couldn't wait to get her hands on one of these cookies, but I actually beat her to it.  I barely got them out of the box before little one and I got into them.  Here is a picture of her eating her Smiley Face Cookie:

She loved it and after she finished asked for "more".  Of course, as a mom I try to limit her sugar intake especially at such a young age.  I told her she could have some more later, which she did when he dad came home and got into them too.  These cookies sugar cookies and are delicious and have a great flavor without being overly sweet like some cookies that I have eaten.  The frosting is not overdone either and had a little bit of a crunch.  If you are looking for a great sweet treat that your kids are sure to love, you should order up a dozen or maybe two of these great Smiley Cookie.  These would also be a great gift and are very affordable to get for a child's birthday party of for a school party as well.  These cookies were tasty and definitely didn't last too long around here, that was for sure.  They are so fun to eat and even more fun to receive.  You will definitely put a smile on everyone's face by sending some of these yummy cookies to a loved one or friend.  Another great thing is these Smiley Cookies are not your average cookie size, these are BIG and one is definitely enough, well at least one at a time!  
Smiley Cookies are THE purveyor of delicious and customizable cookies that were made famous in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  If you have a holiday, they have a cookie for it!  They can customize cookies for any event, whether you want to match your cookies to your wedding colors or to your favorite football team, Smiley Cookies should definitely be your cookie of choice.  Their cookies are hand iced and shipped fresh-absolutely no freezing.  You could definitely tell how fresh these cookies are when they arrive, but I also love that every single cookie arrived in one piece, no broken pieces or anything.  Customers all over the country send care packages to college students and family members everywhere.  Smiley Cookies even ships to APO addresses so that our troops can get a nice pick me up and a taste of home when they need it the most.  If you are sending these wonderful Smiley Cookies as a gift, they will include a personalized greeting from you as well.
