The Pride of Boston … In a Cookie Tin

By , April 3, 2006 10:21

A tin chock full of hand-iced sugar cookies with Boston-themed artistry has put this small Beantown bakery on the map. Gourmet baker A Dozen Eggs not only produces the coolest Boston-themed cookies, but they also do hand-iced cookies with custom corporate logos, congratulatory messages, holiday themes, new baby boy/girl and several other occasions.

Beantown Cookies

Thanks to my friend Melanie for showing me this. She’s almost as big a Red Sox fan as I am. The Red Sox-like jersey cookie is what caught my eye in the Beantown cookie tin offering. As you can see they also have the Citgo sign, the T logo, Newberry Street sign and others. I hope they’re as good as they look. I’m placing an order right now. You can also buy them online at

When I originally tried to write this post and link it to their site, they were offline. There was a message on their site that led me to believe they were overwhelmed with online orders. They had to shut down and stop taking new orders for a while. Now they are back and my order, hopefully, will go through.

They were covered by Boston Magazine, local Boston food & restaurant review television show The Phantom Gourmet, the Boston Globe, and South Boston Online. The bakery and it’s owner, Laura Courtemanche, were covered on an episode of the Food Network’s Recipe for Success. Maybe my site linking to them will drum up enough business to knock them offline too.
