This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Cookie-Luv-February-2017-Box

Cookie Luv is a cookie-of-the-month subscription box. They offer month-to-month cookie plans as well as subscription plans for college students. All cookies are made fresh and from scratch. Each month features a different flavor.

There are two cookie collections to choose from: Just Like Home Cookie Collection and Fancy Schmancy Cookie Collection. The Just Like Home collection features classic drop cookies (12 cookies total) while the Fancy Schmancy collection features unique artisan cookies (12-20 cookies total depending on size).

There are also several subscription options. The Month-to-Month subscription ships on a monthly basis, while the College Care Package Subscription is similar to the Month-to-Month but on a slightly altered shipping schedule to accommodate the academic calendar. There are one-time purchase Midterms and Finals Care Packages as well.

Linzer Tarts

The February cookie-of-the-month is Linzer Tart. There are 12 cookies total. Each one is carefully wrapped and sealed with a foiled sticker. I love that they’re individually wrapped so that they can be shared with friends or easily packed away as a snack.

The ingredient list is printed on the inside of the box.

These Linzer Tarts are made from flour and almonds with a raspberry jam filling sandwiched between two cookies and generous amounts of confectioner’s sugar dusted on top.

The confectioner’s sugar on some of the cookies are smushed against their plastic baggie, so it doesn’t look as pristine as the rest. However, I can assure you they taste just as delicious.

The chopped almonds in the cookie add a chunky but satisfying chewiness to the overall texture. The tartness from the raspberry jam goes so well with the rich, buttery cookie and powdered sugar. This is a perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors.

Verdict: This is an amazing introduction to Cookie Luv and the Fancy Schmancy Cookie Collection. I am just blown away by how delicious the Linzer Tarts are! As someone who rarely bakes but loves baked goods, I can happily report that this subscription satisfies my sweet tooth for homemade cookies. There are 12 cookies total, which is the equivalent of $2.50 per cookie (or $3 per cookie when you account for shipping). As obsessed as I am with the Linzer Tarts, that is more than what I would prefer to pay for a cookie. On the flip side, this is a wonderful care package for college students who don’t have time or resources to make fancy cookies on their own!

  1. When looking at the other boxes listed in the Food-Sweets category, it appears that the price for this box is right on par with other comparable specialty cookies, such as macarons and freshly-baked artisan cookies (not just “drop” cookies). Anyone who has baked these will agree that they actually take several hours to make and require the touch of a skilled baker.

    • I have made them before… minus the heart, and they did take time, but weren’t especially difficult to make. Certainly no where near the difficulty of a macaron. I think what makes both of these cookies expensive is the almonds. Even so, these are especially pricey.

    • I think we are all aware these are not drop cookies but if you’re willing to put forth time and effort I still think most people could make these.

  2. Yikes what a price mark up. I can get a box of cookies that are twice the size and made from scratch fresh at the bakery in my grocery store everyday for less than $5. No thanks. It better have gold leaf flakes at this price

  3. Oh. My. I hope I can swap for this. Anyone?????

    • Omg that was to cute KKH…. Wow Holy Moly on that price right….. 30 plus 6 is nuts…. My makes these for Christmas but she didnt come this year so I just crying a little bit when I seen these yummy cookies. I gotta text here ASAP….

      • Aunt sorry…. Lol…. I just send the post and read after… Silly I know…

  4. These cookies look great and I’m sure they are delicious but thirty dollars for a box of cookies seems pretty ridiculous. The ingredients are pretty simple also I’m sure most people could make these cookies for much less cost at home.
