    Flavor Menu For The Next Two Weeks

    Hi Y’all-

    I’m going to try a little experiment over the next 2 weeks & will be offering limited flavors. My current menu is 5 different flavors and as you can imagine, constantly mixing those same 5 doughs daily is a painstaking process. On average, it takes me about 30 minutes just to mix one dough. Multiply that by 5. Some doughs I mix 2 or 3 times a day. If a customer orders 1 dozen of each flavor, it takes me close to 3 hours just to mix the doughs. I’m not taking into account the time that it takes for them to set, then baking, cooling, packing them up, etc. 1 order of each flavor would take me close to 8 hours to prepare. 

    My goal is to get great quality products out to you with minimal delays so I’m hoping this will allow me to do just that. We’ll try it this week and next week and reevaluate after October 5th. Cool? Cool. 

    Flavor Menu: 

    September 22-28: Chocolate Chip & Oatmeal (you can still customize them with add ins!) 

    September 29-October 5: Snickerdoodle & Brownie (you can customize the brownie cookies only.) 

    (Please refer to the previous post with ordering instructions, postal fees, and a complete list of add-ins to customize your order.)

    Steen’s Cookies Is Back!

    I’m back in the kitchen finally and excited about preparing your favorite Steen’s Cookies flavors! If this is your 1st time ordering or if you’re a return customer & don’t remember the ordering process, I am including instructions below. If you’re not clear on anything please don’t hesitate to email me at SteensCookies@gmail.com. Please use this email to contact me about anything related to cookies (do not use Twitter DM or tweets as I often miss tweets & email is just easier to keep everything pertaining to your order in 1 place.) 

    How To Order: 

    1. Select your flavors from the menu found below.

    2. Email your selections to SteensCookies@gmail.com. Make sure you indicate which flavors you’d like, including the quantity (1 doz, 2 doz etc) and any add-ins if applicable.

    (Example: “I’d like 1 dozen peanut butter, 2 dozen oatmeal raisin, and 1 dozen chocolate chip + pecans.”) If you are a return customer, please send a new email. Don’t order by replying to a previous email. 

    3. Include the full name and address of the person the order should be shipped to. 

    4. Include the email address associated with the Paypal account that I should send the money request to. 

    5. Be prepared to pay within 24 hours to avoid order cancellation. You will receive only ONE reminder email that payment is due before your order is cancelled. 

    6. Sit back and relax! A postal confirmation number will be sent to you when your order has been shipped. Expect your cookies to arrive within 1 week. If there are any delays, you will receive an email from me. 

    MENU: 

    Flavors ($10/dozen): 

    Brownie 

    Chocolate Chip

    Oatmeal

    Peanut Butter

    Snickerdoodle 

    Add-Ins: 

    Almond Roca English Toffee $2

    Andes Mint Chunks: $2

    Chocolate Chips: $2

    Chocolate Chunks: $2

    Cranberries: $2

    Macadamia Nuts: $4

    Mini M&M’s: $2

    Peanut Butter Chips: $2

    Pecans: $4

    Raisins: $2

    Toffee (Heath Bar): $2

    Walnuts: $4

    White Chocolate Chips: $2

    SHIPPING: 

    Because these items are perishable, all orders are shipped via USPS Priority shipping which typically arrives in 2 to 3 business days. Standard shipping can take up to 1 week which is why I only use priority shipping. The priority shipping rates below include postal confirmation (tracking) and are as follows:

    1 dozen = $9

    2-3 dozen = $11

    4-5 dozen = $15

    6+ dozen = TBD

    (I try my best to use flat rate boxes whenever possible to reduce shipping costs. For example, 2 dozen in a non-flat rate box would cost more than $11 to ship because of the weight.) 

    Again, if you have any questions please email me at SteensCookies@gmail.com.

    Thank You!

    Thank you all SO much for your overwhelming response to Steen’s Cookies being back. I’m currently wrapping up the last 22 orders (38 dozen more cookies to mix, bake & ship!) so I appreciate everyone’s patience as I painstakingly prepare each order for shipment.

    I’m not taking any more orders at this time so that I can focus on my existing orders. I will be taking a few days off after I am caught up and will return in about a week or so.

    Thanks again for the love. I look forward to your feedback & pics!

    Steen’s Cookies Back!

    Well…temporarily. So many regulars have been missing their favorite Steen’s Cookies flavors while others never got a chance to try them. So this weekend I will be back in the kitchen. But there’s a catch.

    I will only have 10 dozen cookies available in the following flavors:

    -Chocolate Chip SOLD OUT

    -Oatmeal (5 dozen plain, 5 dozen with raisins)

    -Peanut Butter

    -Snickerdoodle

    -Brownie Chunk

    (All flavors are plain and there will be no add-ins. I’m trying to keep it as simple as possible.)

    Each dozen cookies is $10. Shipping will run anywhere from $8-$13 depending upon how many dozen you order. For orders of 3 or more dozen, I will use a USPS medium flat rate box to reduce shipping costs. All cookies are shipped USPS Priority with a tracking # and will arrive within 2-3 days from the moment they leave the oven.

    I’m baking 50 dozen cookies. That’s 600 cookies. (Oh God…am I sure I wanna do this? lol) So when they’re gone, they’re gone! Cookies will start shipping Monday 03/25/13 and will ship throughout that week.

    How To Order:

    1.)    Email me at SteensCookies@gmail.com

    2.)    In your email, please include the full name & address of who I’m shipping to (don’t forget the suite or apt # if I’m shipping to a business or a friend.)

    3.)    Include the flavors you’d like and how many dozen of each flavor. You can’t mix & match (like, you can’t get ½ dozen oatmeal & ½ dozen peanut butter. I only sell full dozens.) Because I am offering limited quantities, I’ll need to confirm that a certain flavor isn’t sold out. You will be given your total and payment instructions at that time.

    4.)    If payment is not received within 24 hours from the time you’re sent your payment instructions, your order will be cancelled.

    5.)    I accept Paypal. You can also pay by phone with a credit card/debit card if you don’t have a Paypal account setup. Just let me know this in your email & we’ll set up a payment by phone!

    6.) Once you receive your email confirmation with your tracking #, get your milk ready & sit back and relax. Your cookies will be there shortly!

    Please email me with any questions.

    <3 Steen

    Thank You!!!

    Hey Y’all! 

    Today is Steen’s Cookies 1 year anniversary! Crazy, right?! I never imagined that this day would come. When I first started Steen’s Cookies back on March 15th of last year, it was out of necessity. I’d recently been laid off and didn’t have a plan. So I did something that I’ve often daydreamed of. I took my severance and ran away from home! I spent an entire week alone in Hawaii admiring the ocean view from my 16th floor balcony, wearing sundresses & flip flops, and consuming copious amounts of bacon. That week in paradise allowed me to clear my head & come home with a plan. People had been asking me for a while "When are you going to start selling your cookies?" & I realized that now was the perfect time. 3 days after I returned home from Hawaii, I launched Steen’s Cookies. And 3 days after that I ended up in the emergency room with bursitis in my left shoulder because the 35 dozen cookies that were prepared in those first few days were mixed by hand. Needless to say, getting a professional mixer was at the top of my “To-Do” list for that following week! 

    I’ve learned SO much during this past year. Not just about operating a small business but about myself. I can’t even count how many 18+ hour days I’ve had. I’ve been in the kitchen so late many nights that I’ve watched the sunrise out my kitchen window. I’m not complaining though. I’m grateful that so many people have supported me. I’m rapidly approaching my 600th order! (Take into account that I’ve taken about 9 of the past 52 weeks off, I’d say that’s pretty impressive!) Thank you to every person who has placed an order with me during this past year. Thank you to everyone following this Tumblr. Thank you to everyone who has participated in my giveaways. Thank you for the RT’s. Thank you to my techie friends for offering suggestions & helping me get my butt in gear. Even if you’ve never actually tried a Steen’s Cookie but have thought about ordering, I appreciate you too! Thank you for your stories about how you came home from a rough day at work and seeing that box of cookies at your door made your day better. Thank you for sharing your excitement with me when you receive the confirmation email letting you know that your order has shipped! Thank you for ordering cookies for your loved ones & for sharing them with coworkers. Thank you for all of your feedback and for sharing photos (and videos!) of you enjoying your Steen’s Cookies with me. Thank you for making my temporary solution for unemployment turn into a full fledged business. On those days when I’m tired and my feet are swollen and my back hurts, YOU are what keeps me motivated. Making my customers happy is one of the most satisfying feelings I’ve ever felt. Knowing that people believe in you will motivate you when you’ve only had 9 hours of sleep in 2 days.

    I’m not sure what the future holds for Steen’s Cookies. As long as my customers continue to have a sweet tooth, I will continue to bake. As I mentioned, I had no idea that I’d still be doing this 1 year later. But one thing I am certain of is that you all have contributed to making this one of the most special experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I truly appreciate you all so much from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for your continued support. 

    Love,

    ~Steen
