Cute & Tasty Fall Treats


Thanks to Dancing Deer Bakery, we’ve retired our seasonal cookie cutters from active duty. We found that Dancing Deer’s line of autumn cookies and cakes satisfied our need for delicious fall flavors without our having to toil in the kitchen. All of the ingredients used in their products are natural and high-quality, making these nibbles something we can’t wait to serve our favorite guests. These treats use shapes and colors we remember from childhood, coupled with irresistible grown-up flavors. There’s something for everyone, and we found the treats to be universally enjoyable.

  • Giant Mocha Marble Chocolate Bats (photo top left). These large, bat-shaped shortbread cookies aren’t as crumbly as conventional shortbread, but they’re big on rich, buttery flavor enhanced with adult-friendly mocha. Perfect with a cup of coffee, tea or hot apple cider, they also make a delightful party favor for Leaves and Acorn CookiesHalloween get-togethers.
  • Maple Butter Leaves & Gingerbread Acorns. We adore the way these look spread out on a serving tray. Inviting and traditional, they’re a throwback to those holiday cookies of our childhood. The Maple Butter Leaves are reminiscent of old-fashioned maple candies and the Gingerbread Acorns achieve a delicate balance of sugar and spice. Crushed, they make an irresistible topping for ice cream and yogurt...but they’re even cuter placed on top—or on top of cupcakes, iced cakes, or pudding—as tasty seasonal decoration.
  • Maple Pumpkin Cranberry Streusel Cake. Even though we can’t say the name of this cake three times fast, it’s one of our favorite items on Dancing Deer’s Fall roster. Moist on the bottom, delightfully topped with a sugary streusel, we found it hard to believe this cake comes from a package. The recipe is all about contrasts: the maple and pumpkin richly convey the flavors of autumn, while the cranberry pieces add a refreshingly tart bite. The pound cake itself plays tenderly against the streusel topping’s hearty mix pecans and sugar.

  • Snickerdoodles. These simple cinnamon and sugar cookies are best enjoyed with a tall glass of cold milk, just like when you were a kid.
  • Peanut Butter Cats & Chocolate Bats. We thought that these spooky little cookies looked adorable perched on top of frosted cupcakes.

The Peanut Butter Cats & Chocolate Bats, the Giant Mocha Marble Chocolate Bats and the Maple Butter Leaves and Gingerbread Acorns come beautifully packaged in lightweight shaker-style wooden boxes and tied with a ribbon. The Snickerdoodles and the Maple Pumpkin Cranberry Streusel Cake arrive in attractive chartreuse cardboard boxes (shown above) printed with savory words like “Mmmmm,” “Delish,” “Tasty” and our favorite, “Enjoy!”
