Cookies, Tea and a Little Bit of Giving December 7 - 12

We all know people love tea and cookies. They’re a great combination—that’s why I’m divin’ into a tantalizing collaboration with The Daly Bagel. We’ll be combining the two treats to make one scrumptious tea-inspired cookie that perfectly complements everyone’s favorite bagel flavors: lemon lavender and chai. 

Drumroll, Please…


What flavor did we come up with? London Fog. Named for the classic coffee shop drink, it will feature the bright bergamot notes of Earl Grey tea, vanilla, and sweet steamed milk, all wrapped up in a cute shortbread cookie with a satisfying crunch.

Buy the Cookies, Give to Kids

You will be able to purchase these cookies (along with a few other Daly Bagel treats) from December 7 - 12, while supplies last. All proceeds from the cookie sales go to our local children’s charities (thanks, Daly Bagel!)
