You can also choose the 12 or 6-month plan, which would mean a delivery once a month or once every other month.

Cheryl’s Cookie of the Month December 2018 Review
Once you open the box you are greeted to a beautiful sight of cookies and an info sheet. The info sheet has details on their various clubs, a discount code, how to store your cookies for maximum flavor, and how to tell if the sender left you a gift message.
Buttercream Frosted Holiday Cut-Out Cookies, 12 ct – Retail Value $29.99 (on sale for $23.99)
This month I received four ornaments, four snowflakes, and four Christmas tree cookies. Maybe this is because it’s been a while since I last had a Cheryl’s cookie, but these cookies felt SO pillowy soft in my mouth. They really satisfied my sweet tooth, and I didn’t feel the need to eat more than one. The cookies are buttery and so soft, and they do pack a bit of sugar so make sure you are trying to treat your sweet tooth before diving in. I love that these can be frozen, as this means I can always have a cookie in my freezer for the times I really want one. These would also be cute additions to small gifts- a nice cookie attached to a gift card for your kid’s teacher would be lovely!
The Verdict: This cookie subscription is for everyone who loves the frosted sugar cookies you can buy at the grocery store, but appreciates that these are even more delicious. The price is high when you compare it to mass-produced cookies from the grocery store, however, I think the price is fair for the quality of the cookie you get. For how much I enjoy these cookies, however, I am not sure if the subscription is worth it with the new pricing model. Previously a box would cost $23.98 ($16.99 + $6.99 shipping), but the cost has increased pretty significantly. Now, a box is $21.99 + $9.99 shipping, bringing the total to $31.98. I don’t feel like you are really saving much by subscribing the way the previous pricing model allowed you to.
To Wrap Up:
Can you get this box if you sign up today? I believe so! Sign up before the end of the 3rd week of the month to get those month’s cookies.
Value Breakdown: This box costs $31.98 ($21.99 + $9.99 shipping) and I received 12 delicious cookies. That breaks down to about $2.66 a cookie.
