WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: New takes on old favorites.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Far beyond a rich and buttery cookie, these deliver panache via layers and layers of flavor accents.

Cookie Panache: A Gourmet Cookie Gift With Verve, Style & Flair

CAPSULE REPORT: Since 1979, Between the Bread has been catering to demanding New Yorkers. Thank goodness the growing demand for sophisticated cookie platters gave birth to Cookie Panache, because the cookies are simply wonderful. In a world where the cost of labor and ingredients to bake one’s own butter cookies is almost as much as buying the finest, Cookie Panache is a real find. Crafting twists on favorites that add layers of flavor, these cookies and biscotti have most definitely earned their panache.

Cookie Panache answers the ever-hanging question of what to give for personal and corporate holiday gifts, hostess gifts and thank-you gifts for loving relatives who treat you to Thanksgiving, and Christmas and Chanukah memories.*

*Anyone who celebrates anything else: Add it here!

So, what are you waiting for? You know you want to dig in and find out more about the Dulce de Leche Cookie (a super sandwiche), Triple Chocolate Bites (worth every calorie), Mojito Lime and Orange Grove (better than a trip South), Dutch Granny (we’ve adopted her) and the rest of the melodious cookie chorus.

Read the full review below—but read it after lunch or dinner...or better yet, with some celery and a nice yogurt dip.

Cookie Panache Overview

Panache is an interesting word. It entered the French lexicon in 1553, referring specifically to an ornamental plume of feathers.* The word evolved to also mean verve, style or flair, as with that well-known dandy, Yankee Doodle, who stuck a feather (or perhaps, a panache) in his cap and called it maccheroni.†

*Etymology: From the Italian pinnacchio, plume, which derived from the Late Latin pinnaculum, the diminutive of pinna, feather.    †The Italian word for dandy.

There’s no doubt that Cookie Panache has earned its panache.

All natural, made with superior ingredients and fresh out of the oven, the gourmet cookies and biscotti are super, packaged in lovely gift boxes and tied with satin ribbon (the cookies are long gone, but we’ve repurposed the boxes). Orders are baked in the evening for next-day shipping or delivery. The company is very experienced in large parties, weddings and special events, so don’t be afraid to throw large orders its way.
