Holiday Hostess Giveaway - 6 Persimmons Hand Iced Cookies - CLOSED

Our favorite holiday tradition is always painting cookies with our family.  We are always so thrilled by the results - how each naked cookie gets dressed differently - sparkling in colorful sugar, eyes of chocolate, or brought to life with a gilded necklace.  But in these busy, working days, there is less time for cookie painting, and yet we long for that hand crafted treat every holiday season.

Enter 6 Persimmons.  A New York based company owned by the fabulously talented Karen, who makes cookies that are closer to abstract art than your traditional snowman cookie.  Her cookie designs include delicious abstract spears iced with bright colors, tokens of good luck and good fortune, and adorable animals symbolic of the coming New Year.   6 Persimmons has generously given a box of their hand iced  beauties to you - Homage to Andy.
