Wohoo! After a few months of *relative* silence on this cookie blog, we’ve enlisted the help of a fantastic intern Mary to keep up posted on all interesting things cookie related. She’ll be posting up a storm here over the next few months, so stay tuned (and intrigued…)
We are so excited to introduce our new Gluten-Free white chocolate macadamia nut cookie! We know that some Celiacs are very very sensitive to even traces of gluten, so we want to give a quick rundown of the environment we make these cookies in. While we do our best to keep these cookies separate from the rest, we do not have a separate area or machinery to prepare these cookies, and so it is very likely that they have been around our other gluten-filled cookies. Feel free to contact us directly at 137 8894 0337 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get more specifics on this baking environment, but we’re so excited to be able to offer a least a little something to the Shanghai gluten-free community, and we will continue to think up ways to serve you better.
So basically we’ve put around 40 cookie letters (red and white, to keep it in season) in a jar for you to make fun words and phrases with. We’re combining this with a little thing I like to call “Instagram” to make a game of it, for those who like web interaction. Here’s how it works:
1.) buy the jar (necessary, sorry!)
2.) make a clever word or phrase (or haiku!)
3.) post it on Instragram @strictlycookies with #cookiegrams
4.) wait tirelessly by your phone to see if your cookiegram is fun enough to warrant free cookie prizes.

So the pollution is no longer that thing that your mom is worried about but you insist is “fine!” and “just a phase!” despite occasionally wondering if it is slowly killing you, and you should just embrace it and take up smoking/drugs/a more reckless lifestyle.
It’s now turned into this really gross thing that’s going on and it is
But guess what? Your ears are fine! For now. And I haven’t yet read any articles about how bad pollution is for those crafty canals, so let’s reward those puppies for having our backs and not being so high maintenance (like that organ who must not be named) with some good old fashioned music. Crafted to accompany you on the emotional roller coaster ride we call Pollution, this mix will hold you while you rock on the floor and question every decision you made that led you to Shanghai. So pop an ear bud in (honestly, the less general air in your body the better) and enjoy!
Hey look! Another Gingerbread House design to oil your creativity gears! This one is sponsored by the Button and Trim market and WOW that place is overstimulating. I almost left with a small baby and a fur qipao because they were comparatively logical items of purchase. But enough! Let’s get to the pictures!
mad colorful zippers

How will you design your gingerbread house?!!? Live cats? Pollution dust collected from your filter?! IT’S UP TO YOU!! But you could also use the candies and such we’ve included in our kit, no pressure.
