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!
Memorial Day. A day of remembrance, pride and support for our troops both old and new. It is a day for United States families to take a breath from work to enjoy and appreciate their families and friends. This day also tends to be the first BBQ of the season for people all over the country. Celebrating our troops, the upcoming summer and being surrounded by loved ones….what could be better?!
While we can’t help you much when it comes to the barbecuing side of things, we can absolutely help when it comes to our specialty, DESSERT! If you’re looking to wow your guests, we promise you cannot go wrong with Cravory Cookies. Here are a few of our favorite ways to incorporate the cookies into a BBQ:

Happy Memorial Day from Cravory Cookies
Do you ever have that dream where you’re in a room surrounded by 40+ different flavors of delicious, sweet Cravory Cookies and encouraged to try every single one? Yeah, us too. And not only is it a recurring dream for us, it’s also a recurring reality! Over the past nine years, Cravory Cookies has created over 4,000 different cookie flavors and we continue to add to our recipe box every single month.
The process of introducing 6 brand new cookies every month is an exciting task requiring time, creativity and a surplus of delicious ingredients. Our chefs lead the charge spending weeks preparing for each quarterly tasting. While brainstorming, they make sure to take into account any and all upcoming holidays, from Valentine's Day to National Peanut Butter Day. These holidays are great sources of flavor inspiration and a wonderful way to make the cookies of the month seamlessly fit into our Cravers’ lives.
In additional to holidays, it’s even more important to use flavors that are in season! While a pumpkin themed cookie may fly off the shelf during October, it’s not exactly what people naturally crave in the middle of a 90 degree heat spell during July. Using the freshest ingredients is an important part of this process, which means knowing what fruits are in season, what people are naturally craving and how best to appeal to our fans!
Once our chefs have created the flavors, they round up all of the necessary ingredients and spend days mixing doughs in preparation for the big tasting. Once every quarter, the entire Cravory team gathers in the kitchen to sample each and every new creation. At first glance it looks a tad overwhelming, 40 flavors? All in a row?! We move through the flavors together, discussing the consistency, flavor and whether or not we think our Cravers will approve. Once our bellies are on the verge of exploding and we can’t even look at another cookie (at least for a few hours!), we assign the new cookie flavors to specific months. After the cookies are organized into months, we choose the names, take an onslaught of photos and patiently wait until it’s time to debut them!
It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!
