    We’re all getting into the festive season mood one way or another, from amazing Christmas decorations to daily celebratory events. But one thing’s missing – yes, you thought it too, Christmas cookies. Nothing beats munching on a big box of Gingerbread men and Santa Claus shaped cookies underneath your blanket. Add a warm cup of hot chocolate or tea, and voila – your Christmas is made. So, if we have just set the scene exactly right for you and now that’s all that you can think of, fear not, we’ve rounded up a few places where you can get your dose of jolly cookies.

    1. Oven heaven bakery

    Among their vast selections of cookies and edible cookie dough, we found their seasonal Christmas Cookies Box for 300LE. It includes 5 Gingerbread Cookies, 3 White Chocolate & Cranberry Cookies, 5 Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, 3 Funfetti Cookies and 4 Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies. You can also purchase by piece for 15LE if you don’t want the whole box. Their delivery charge is a flat rate of 50 LE; however, pickup is available from 5th Settlement, New Cairo.

    It’s not a store; you can see their price list and menu on its website.

    1. Creamy’s

    We spotted an Oreo B-Day cake Xmas edition cookies on their profile. What is that you ask? It is cookie dough stuffed with cookie butter and Oreos, then rolled in festive sprinkles. You can order 6 pieces for 180LE or a dozen for 350LE. They are also a delivery based service, find them on IG.

    1. Vero’s Treats

    What is brilliant about Vero’s is that you can also customise; from snowman and snowflake cookies to tree cake popsicles and chocolate lollipops. Anything you can think of; Christmas cupcakes, Oreo filled chocolate Santa Claus bellies and even mini cookie boxes. We can go on forever – better yet, you can check the account out on IG.

    1. Boxxie

    They have a whole Christmas menu to choose from; Fruit Basket, Veggies, Add-ons, and Big Bites. Nonetheless, we are mostly interested in the Baking Corner; it is where all the magic happens. You have four options; Molasses cookies, Chocolate-chip pancakes, Vanilla muffins, and Yam brownies – healthy never sounded so good.

    Boxxie is a fresh lunchbox delivery-based service, mainly functioning through Facebook.

    1. Weirdough

    If you haven’t yet heard about them, then you are definitely missing out. These cookie experts have launched a Christmas box for 250LE. They have seven flavours of Christmas-themed cookies: Nutella, Lotus, Original, Chocolate Lava, Dulce De Leche, Reese’s, and Smores. You can find them at Flamingo hypermarket, Galaxy Cinema in CFC Mall, Stavolta Gelato, Holm Café, Zakuski Appetizers, and Arkan Plaza. Otherwise, you can order a minimum of six pieces from the luxury of your own cosy couch.

    Check out their menu and prices on their website.

    1. Ovio

    Ovio is famous for its yearly cheerful Christmas menu that’s filled with goodies. Aside from their amazing hot festive beverages and pancakes, their Christmas cookie selection is incredible. They have about 11 different flavours; from ginger and pistachio praline to cinnamon and almond oat – all ranging from 39LE-45LE.

    1. The Four Fat Ladies

    They took Christmas 2019 to a whole new level with their very fat Christmas menu. You can find Gingerbread men cookies, Santa’s Trash cookies, Sugar cookies, and Earthquake cookies – sounds tempting.
