Happy December! 

I think this means we’re officially in the holiday season. Everyone is decking the halls and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go, including here at Ashley’s Pastries

We’re filling our cases with a variety of delicious Christmas cookies. It’s not a moment too soon, either, as National Cookie Day is right around the corner. Sunday, December 4th is National Cookie Day. 

Yep, there’s a national cookie day dedicated to our favorite go-to sweet. As if you needed an excuse to eat one more cookie, this is it!

Ashley’s Pastries isn’t open on Sunday, but swing by to see us on Saturday to pick up your favorite cookies to share. Or, perhaps you’ve been wanting to try something new. This day is the perfect time to pick another cookie to try, and we’ve got plenty to pick from! 

Chocolate Chip Cookies from Dayton BakeryChocolate Chip is one of our most popular. This classic cookie is great for all ages, pairs perfectly with a glass of cold milk and is a good choice if you’re picking up cookies to give to friends or neighbors. 

Oatmeal raisin is a standard at our bakery, though we feel this is a cookie you either love or hate. These cookies are perfect to include in a variety assortment. 

Fresh Baked CookiesHave you heard of the “cookie of the stars”? Sand Tarts are a Hollywood favorite! Dayton native and oscar-winning actress Allison Janney loves these cookies and we’re often shipping an order to Hollywood.  

Our seasonal iced decorated cookies are the choice of children, but it’s for good reason. These cookies look as good as they taste! And right now when there are so many festive designs, it’s hard to pick just one. These cookies are a great choice to take to a holiday party, or to simply celebrate the season “just because”.

Can’t decide between candy or a cookie? Our M&M cookies are the perfect compromise – you get both! Enjoy the famous chocolate candies baked right into our yummy cookie dough.

Everyone loves a good sugar cookie, and we find that’s especially true during the holidays. Sugar cookies are great as-is, or you can get creative and decorate, too. I think the whole family loves to be a part of the baking process, and this easy sugar cookie recipe from allrecipes.com is a good one to try. 

You may have a tried-and true chocolate chip cookie in your house, but if you’re  up for trying something new, here’s a great go-to. The Nestle Toll House cookie recipe won’t disappoint. And chances are, you have everything you need in your pantry already so it’s easy to get baking.

We hope to see you for National Cookie Day, and we look forward to celebrating the holidays with you, too.
