Dreaming of horses and ponies
Like many girls (and boys) I had a life long dream of having my own horse. Each Christmas Eve I closed my eyes and visualized a pony standing next to the Christmas tree during holiday time. While I realize pets do not make good presents unless EVERYONE is on board with the idea, what kid doesn’t long for their very own pony? Imagine the thrill of opening a gift box filled with equestrian-themed cookies, along with a hand written note from mom or dad saying that their many hours of horseback riding lessons have paid off and horse ownership is in their future.
Horse cookies in a gift box
Agreed, I dream big. Perhaps a box full of cookies featuring ponies, jumpers and race horses decorated with Fairy Dust, is more to your liking – and price range? I have just the gift for you. Queen City Cookies is a small baking company based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Owner Peggy Shannon dreams of works of art in the form of a cookie. Queen City Cookies are not mass-produced. Theses cookies are hand made from replicas of historic molds hand carved by artisans as far back as the 14th century.
