One of my readers, Kelsey, gave me a tip on a nut-free cookie company in Lake Bluff, Illinois called O'My Goodness.
She had recently received a bunch of beautifully decorated cookies and wanted to share the news with all of us. Thanks for the info, Kelsey!
The site maintains that their facility is peanut-free, so I e-mailed the company and asked if it is tree nut-free also. The company's VP sent me a reply which stated that the company uses no nuts of any kind in its products--they only make plain iced/decorated butter cookies and gingerbread cookies. Sounds good to me!
Check out the link to see the selection--they really are stunning and apparently delish as well. I will have to let you know when I try them myself, but Kelsey says they're great. I am a miserable cookie decorator but am working on it. Being able to buy professionally decorated cookies would be a little slice of nirvana.
On the customer message board, one grandmother wrote in to say how happy she was that her peanut-allergic granddaughter got to eat the "wedding favor" cookies provided by O'My Goodness at a recent event. So if you need that type of thing, check them out.
The company ships all across the U.S. and will do expedited shipping as well. If you have any concerns, please contact O'My Goodness directly, but based on the information I received, it looks like they're a go for nut-free kids.
