The aroma of homemade cookies awakens other sense memories, from the warmth of a wood-burning stove to the sight of Grandma milking a cow above the mixing bowl. Hearken back to simpler times with this Groupon.
$8 for 16 Freshly Baked Cookies with a Quart of Milk ($16 Value)
Guests pick up a quart of milk with 16 oven-fresh cookies. Flavors range from classic chocolate chip and snickerdoodle to oatmeal white-chocolate cherry and double-chocolate peanut-butter cup. Patrons can mix and match flavors.
Boulder Baked's chefs don't make pizzas, but they do deliver their fare in pizza boxes. When the phone trills and someone orders a Sweet Sixteen, they arrange dough balls in a four-by-four matrix, packing them so tightly that the cookies merge into rounded rectangles. This is just one option—the cooks also create classic and gluten-free desserts such as pies, cupcakes, and brownies. They bake each treat to order, and can tuck almost any delicacy into care packages for students or shopping-mall Santas.
