Here at Cravory Cookies we have never been afraid to step out of the box and it was no different when it came to creating our May flavors. While we incorporated some classics, such as the M&M Snickerdoodle, we ramped up the flavor when it came to our Lemon Lavender. While it can be a risk using such a “love it or hate it” flavor, but if we know our Cravers well, we know the more flavor, the better!
Lemon flavored cookies have been a fan favorite ever since the inception of Cravory Cookies. Our Lemon Bar is a bestseller and continues to wow customers time and time again, so we decided to take this flavor in a different direction. We created a new lemon dough, which gave the Lemon Lavender cookie a lighter lemon flavor than our signature Lemon Bar. The decision to add lavender was an easy one, as lavender has been growing in popularity over the last few years. The floral flavor of the lavender mixes perfectly with the citrus of the lemon dough.
Once the lavender is mixed into the dough, it is time to add the homemade Cravory lemon truffles. These truffles are flavorful, sweet and give the right amount of citrus oomph to take this cookie to the next level. The finishing touch on this light and refreshing cooking is the lemon drizzle, which is not only pretty, but also the perfect amount of sweet glaze on top.
If you are craving a cookie with a fresh and exciting flavor, make sure to grab some Lemon Lavender cookies before this flavor disappears on June 1st!

Happy Memorial Day from Cravory Cookies
Since 1984, one week during the month of May has been dedicated towards teachers as National Teacher Appreciation week. The National PTA began this tradition as a way to honor the men and women who dedicate their lives to educating the minds of our children. The theme for this year’s National Teacher Appreciation week is “Teachers Deliver” and we couldn’t agree more!
We can’t help but think the best way to honor the “Teachers Deliver” theme is to make sure teachers are delivered COOKIES! Apples may have run the show for decades, but cookies are moving in as the sweetest gift to give the teacher in your life. We guarantee dropping off a dozen cookies as a thank you, is never a bad idea. Whether you are local in San Diego and able to pop into one of our two storefront locations or you want to order online and have them delivered directly to the school, Cravory Cookies has you covered. If you’re looking for the most coveted “thank you”, give them the gift that keeps on giving -- our Cookies of the Month Subscription! Select an ongoing, 3, 6 or 12 month option and the recipient will receive our brand new Cookies of the Month delivered right to their door.
Teachers deliver, so why shouldn’t we! Celebrate the teacher in your life this May 8th-12th.

When you work at a gourmet cookie company, while simultaneously planning your dream wedding, it’s no surprise the big day will be full of cookies! Our very own Marketing Director & Wedding Coordinator, Andrea, was married on April 14th, 2017 and you can rest assured there were cookies everywhere you looked.
With it being a destination wedding for the majority of the guests, Andrea and Corey wanted to make sure everyone felt welcomed and right at home the moment they arrived in San Diego. As the guests checked into their hotels they were greeted with welcome bags full of goodies!
Andrea and Corey filled the welcome bags with a pocket itinerary of weekend events created by Posh Paperie, Dirty Potato Chips and the two beers Andrea and Corey each drank on their first date. To round out the deliciousness already filling the welcome bag was a bag full of surprise, surprise - Cravory Cookies! Andrea and Corey chose 4 of their favorite best selling favorite: Salted Caramel Cream, Ultimate Chocolate Chip, Lemon Bar and Almond Joyous. They used bakery bags to hold the cookies and atop of each cookie was a custom sticker welcoming the guests, while also identifying the cookie flavor.
The cookies were an amazing beginning to a busy and fun-filled weekend and the wedding guests were immediately hooked! The cookies continued to pop up at every event throughout the long weekend. Displayed at the rehearsal dinner luau were the always popular Taro cookies, as well as our April flavor, Cherry Pina Colada. With a groom from Maui it was important hi Hawaiian friends and family gave their stamp of approval on the Taro cookie -- once we received the two thumbs up, we couldn’t have been prouder!
The wedding day was a day full of love, excitement and dessert! The dessert crazed bride had the ultimate dessert station full of locally made donuts, homemade pop tarts, rice krispie treats and best of all, eight flavors of mini Cravory Cookies! With a mixture of best selling favorites, adventurous Rosemary Balsamic and a few of the exciting April flavors, the guests had an amazing selection of sweets to choose from.
