It's the most wonderful time of the year!
The D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery will be filling orders of fresh, Village-made cookies for you and your loved ones to enjoy this wintry season. They make great gifts and stocking stuffers, or they could be the perfect dessert to bring to all of those holiday parties.
Select from our Large Holiday Cookie Box (36 cookies), Medium Holiday Cookie Box (24 cookies), Holiday Cookie Hostess Bag (12 cookies), or our Springerle Stocking Stuffer (1 embossed sprinerle cookie).
Please note: holiday cookie orders must be picked up in the Flint Hill Store.
Cookie Varieties Include:
Ginger Nuts — Spicy gingerbread formed into walnut shapes from an 1828 recipe.
Macaroons — a coconut confection made with natural vanilla flavor and drizzled with American Heritage Chocolate.
Thumbprint Cookies — a buttery shortbread cookie filled with sweet fruit preserves.
Petticoat Tails (Shortbread) — a rich buttery biscuit styled in the tradition of Scottish shortbread. A melt-in-your-mouth delicate treat perfect for your Hogmanay and Christmas festivities.
Springerle — an embossed American Heritage Chocolate-Mint-flavored cookie originally created in hand-carved wooden molds. Their name is derived from an old German dialect meaning “little knight” or “jumping horse.” In our cookie boxes, the featured springerle will be orange cranberry. In our stocking stuffer bags, you have the choice of anise, orange cranberry, American Heritage Chocolate Mint, or chocolate.
Chocolate-Dipped Jumble — Jumbles are cookie-like pastries, common in England and abroad since the Middle Ages, which tend to have a relatively simple recipe of flour, eggs, and sugar, with vanilla, caraway, or anise for flavoring. (We use lemon zest.) Jumbles were traditionally rolled into knots, scrolls, or later, into letters. We have half-dipped ours in American Heritage Chocolate for a festive taste of the past.
Maple and Sugar Teacakes — not a cake, not quite a cookie, not overly sweet–just barely enough sugar to call it a dessert. The perfect cookie to pair with afternoon tea, a cup of coffee, or a cold glass of milk. A customer favorite in the D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery!
Ox Tongue Cookies — A Pennsylvania Dutch tradition from the mid-1800s. Many Pennsylvania Dutch (German) pioneers came to Western New York and settled in the Genesee Country bringing their traditions with them. The name comes from their appearance, which resembles the shape and color of an ox’s tongue. These gingery cookies were meant to be a teaching tool to remind children about the story of Jesus’s birth as some of the first creatures that met Jesus were the oxen in the stable.
