  • We’re All Cookie Monsters At Heart! 5 Reasons To Love Cookies

    A survey of American adults conducted by OnePoll.com in 2015 found that as a cookie-loving nation, we eat on average 18,928 cookies in a lifetime – per person! That’s one per day for an entire adult lifetime, but that figure is hardly surprising when you look at the rest of the data: 21% of people surveyed confessed to eating 10 or more cookies per week. Classic chocolate chip cookies came out on top as America’s favorite flavor, with brownies, peanut butter cookies, oatmeal raisin and simple sugar cookies all ranking in the top ten. There are lots of great reasons to love cookies – in fact, what’s not to love?! Here are 5 reasons the great American love affair with cookies looks set to last:

    1. Bitesize Treats Don’t Have Calories!

    If you’re watching what you eat or trying to be strict about healthy food, a small treat like a cookie that can be eaten in a mouthful or two doesn’t seem to count! Just one cookie for someone who’s dieting won’t do too much damage, yet tastes great and easily satisfies that sweet craving. Of course, this only applies if you have the self-control to stick to just one – and that you haven’t baked cookies the size of dinner plates (that’s cheating!) – unlike 28% of Americans who admit they sometimes eat up to 6 cookies in one sitting.

    2. They’re Quick And Simple To Bake At Home

    Although there are some delicious and complicated-sounded gourmet cookie recipes out there, it’s also easy to create a wonderfully tasty batch of home-baked cookies at home with as little as three ingredients. Most of us keep butter, sugar and flour in our store cupboards, and you can get as creative as you like with toppings and extras. Being so simple, that means you can easily cater for people with nut allergies or other sensitivities, without compromising on taste.

    3. Cookie Gifts Are ALWAYS Appreciated

    Whether you go for home-made or store-bought, a fancy tin with intricate icing or the most rustic of recipes, giving cookies as a gift is never a bad idea! Invited over to a friend’s house at the last minute? You can whip up a batch of cookies in no time, and look like a domestic goddess when you turn up! Stuck for a Christmas present for your best friend / granny / kindergarten teacher / postman? Cookies are wonderful to give and even better to receive!

    4. Classic Comfort Food

    When you’re feeling down, or simply want to enjoy something warm, soft and sweet to lift your mood and remind you of happy times, cookies tick all the right boxes. According to the survey, 78% of people say that eating cookies makes them feel content, and 61% believe they get a sense of comfort from eating this classic baked treat. More than half of adults surveyed have cookies and milk as a bedtime snack.

    5. Sheer Variety Of Flavors Means You’ll Never Get Bored

    From all-time American classics like chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and peanut butter cookies to more outlandish flavors such as Char Sui Pork, Cayenne Chocolate Coffee or Key Lime Pie, we reckon it’s just about impossible to tire of trying new cookie combinations. Sweet or savory, soft or crunchy, cookies are so varied and versatile it’s no wonder they’re America’s favorite dessert.

  • Black And White Cookies: Wedding Favors With A Difference

    We blogged a while back about Black and White Cookies, their history and popularity with Americans nationwide, not just in New York where they enjoy a special history. From talking to our customers we’ve noticed a growing trend for these iconic cookies being used as part of a very special event – read on to find out more!

    DSC_8115-Edit

    Wedding Favors That Won’t Get Left Behind!

    When you’re planning favors for your wedding breakfast or other big celebratory meal, it can be hard to know what to do for the best. You want to combine something that’s relatively cost effective to buy for all of your guests with something they’ll really want, and which looks great as part of your table setup. Edible favors are rising in popularity, as unlike keepsakes and trinkets that people may not want to keep forever or which just gather dust on a shelf after the big day is over, favors you can eat are a fun and fabulous way to give your guests a gift they’ll actually enjoy!

    A Striking Addition To Your Party Table

    Black and White Cookies look great for any occasion. Whatever the color scheme for your wedding, the stark contrasting colors will add a pop to your table, and make sure your guests are wowed! Stick with the traditional colors for a smart and sophisticated look, or if you wanted to give them a little twist of your own, how about having them iced in the colors of your bouquet or your bridesmaid dresses?

    Personalised Cookies For Multi-Purpose Favors

    These cute cookies act as the perfect blank canvas to embellish with a bit of personalisation. Use white icing on the black, and black icing on the white, of course! You could add the names of the bride and groom, the date of the wedding, or even ice each cookie individually with the guests’ name so they can act as place cards for your dining tables too!

    Pay Homage To Your Wedding Location

    We think Black and White Cookies work brilliantly as wedding favors wherever the location may be, but if you’re getting hitched in New York, your gift to your guests can take on a special significance. It’s here that these iconic treats are particularly popular, and almost every bakery, bagel store, and corner deli has them available. Celebrate your New York wedding in style by offering a traditional cookie which looks simply stunning.

  • Need Another Fix of the Cookie Monster?!

    Back in May, we blogged about the Cookie Monster, the lovable Sesame Street character with a childlike way of talking and an insatiable appetite for cookies. It seems we’re not the only ones to be charmed by this distinctive cuddly creature, as you all loved our post! Upon investigating, we’ve found that Cookie Monster gets around a bit, not wanting to restrict himself to the confines of children’s TV. Cookie Monster’s infatuation with cookies is something which is shared by adults and children alike, so if you’d like to see more of him away from Sesame Street, check out some of these fab videos:

    Cookie Monster’s First Appearance

    In our last blog, we mentioned that Cookie Monster wasn’t originally referred to as such… Here’s an early snack food commercial featuring the Wheel Steeler, the muppet which later evolved into Cookie Monster as we know and love him.

    A Love Affair with Siri

    In March, Apple released a commercial starring Cookie Monster impatiently waiting for the cookies he is baking to be ready. The commercial, highlighting the handsfree capabilities of Siri, has received over 11 million YouTube views to date.

    Apple, too, seem to have been impressed by the popularity of both their video and the entertaining abilities of Cookie Monster, and in April they uploaded a second Cookie Monster video, giving a ‘behind the scenes’ view of how the original was created. In this hilarious outtakes video, Cookie Monster develops a greater affinity with Siri, vowing to bake her a special cookie, and even taking her to bed with him!

    In Conversation With Elizabeth Blair

    Cookie Monster took a trip to the National Public Radio (NPR) studio in New York to be interviewed by broadcaster Elizabeth Blair. The video of the interview forms part of NPR’s In Character series, which examines the impact that fictional characters have upon the American psyche. In his interview with Blair, Cookie Monster answered a version of the famous Proust Questionnaire, and we also learn that even Cookie Monster has standards – he draws the line at sardine ice cream.

    Cookie Monster Turns Writer / Comedian

    Presenter Jimmy Kimmell hired Cookie Monster to write jokes for his late-night talk show, Jimmy Kimmell Live. You can see the result here, but we don’t think we’re giving too much away by saying that Cookie Monster’s jokes all seem to have a similar punchline…

    And Finally…

    If you’ve ever wondered about the correct way to eat a cookie, you have to check out this video from Rocketboom, in which Cookie Monster gives presenter Ella a step-by-step lesson in effective cookie consumption.  Once you’re an expert, you should be able to eat cookies just as enthusiastically as Cookie Monster, complete with OM NOM NOM noises and crumbs galore!

  • Going Sugar-Free doesn't have to mean going Cookie-Free!

    There’s been a lot of talk lately about sugar addiction, and the need to reduce the amount of sugar we consume in our diets. There’s a school of thought that says a little of what you fancy does you good, but there’s no disputing the scientific evidence that eating excess sugar is harmful. So does that mean cookies should be banned from our kitchens? Not necessarily… On special occasions, there’s really nothing wrong with indulging in your favorite baked treat, whether that’s cookies, cakes or other confectionery. For cookie lovers who don’t want to give up on life’s little luxuries, there are more ways to add sweetness to a recipe than simply adding refined sugar. Read on to find out more…

    Is all sugar bad?

    Sugar is a carbohydrate which provides energy to our bodies. It is quickly absorbed by the body and has no other nutritional value. When we consume a lot of sugar, if it’s not quickly used as energy, it becomes converted into stored body fat, something we all want to avoid! In foods, there are two types of sugar: naturally occurring sugar and added sugar. Naturally occurring sugar is found in whole, unprocessed foods, such as the fructose in fruit, and the lactose in milk. Added sugar is any sugar, even a natural sugar like fructose, which is added to a processed food or drink while it is being made.

    In general, any form of sugar we consume can have a detrimental effect on the body. It can cause a ‘sugar high’, that jittery feeling we get when we’ve had too much candy, or the wild behaviour of children shortly after eating chocolate, followed by an inevitable energy slump. There’s lots of information available about why sugar is bad, but some sugars are considered to be less harmful than others. Fruit sugars eaten as part of whole fruit, not juice, come along with a healthy serving of vitamins, fiber and other nutrients, so can be beneficial to the body. There are also a multitude of sugar replacements available, from the all-natural Stevia sweetener to the super-sweet Sucralose, which claims to have a negligible effect on blood-sugar levels.

    So why do we add sugar to our food?

    If sugar’s so bad for us, why do food manufacturers use it in so many products? The simple answer is that it tastes good! It can also improve the color and texture of foods, keep baked goods fresher for longer and aid fermentation in bread and alcohol.

    What if I’m trying to cut down?

    When you’re trying to reduce the amount of sugar in your diet, it can be frustrating to read the labels on food packaging and discover how many products contain added sugar that you just wouldn’t expect. From tinned soups to salad dressings, the findings can be surprising! One way to gain control of what you’re eating is to make more foods from scratch yourself. If you’re a cookie-lover and want to cut back on added sugar, try one of these recipes to create delicious baked treats with natural sweeteners instead:

    Peanut Butter, Banana, Honey & Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

    This recipe uses honey or maple syrup for sweetness, along with a mashed banana. It still counts as added sugar, but honey is considered far healthier than refined cane sugar, and these cookies sound utterly delicious.

    peanut-butter-banana-honey-oat-chocolate-chip-cookies

    Easy Peasy Sugar-Free Cookies

    Super quick and simple, this handy recipe provides a great tasting treat. Sugar-free, dairy-free, nut free, egg free and wheat free – this is perfect for anyone with an intolerance or allergy who still loves cookies!

    Sugar-Free-Kids-Easy-Peasy-Cookies

    Stevia Choc Chip Cookies

    This recipe uses Stevia sugar substitute. You’ll notice the amount specified is far smaller than the amount of white sugar you’d usually use in a recipe for choc chip cookies.

  • Your Father Deserves a Better Father's Day Gift - Bake it Now

    Fathers’ day is perhaps the one special day when grown men get to celebrate their achievements, and reflect with their family. For many, father's day is the perfect time of year to say "I love you", in the most meaningful way, while still remaining within the boundaries of perceived masculinity. Over the years, what began with a mothers day tradition of giving gifts, crossed over to fathers, because equality wins! Rather than flowers, the modern gift giver is presented with a myriad of masculine electronics and toys, but for the select few, a thoughtful New York tradition can be the best gift of all. 

    New York's Own Gimmee Jimmy's Black and White Cookie New York's Own Gimmee Jimmy's Black and White Cookie

    Unlike other cookies, these spongy bundles of goodness are susceptible to gorging, as they should. At Gimmee Jimmy's Cookies, we've taken this into account, offering them in mini-black and white version as bundles of 12, 18, and 24. Our packaging makes these cookies special too, delivered in a beautiful tin and custom box, these delicious cookies present something for everyone to share at home, or on the golf course.

    We've already talked about the history of Black and White cookies here, but did you ever want to know how to make them?

     

    Ingredients: 

    For cookies

    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/3 cup well-shaken buttermilk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/3 cup (5 1/3 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 large egg

    For icings

    • 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
    • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 to 2 tablespoons water
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder

    PREPARATION

    1. Make cookies:
      1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
      2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Stir together buttermilk and vanilla in a cup.
      3. Beat together butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes, then add egg, beating until combined well. Mix in flour mixture and buttermilk mixture alternately in batches at low speed (scraping down side of bowl occasionally), beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix until smooth.
      4. Spoon 1/4 cups of batter about 2 inches apart onto a buttered large baking sheet. Bake in middle of oven until tops are puffed and pale golden, and cookies spring back when touched, 15 to 17 minutes. Transfer with a metal spatula to a rack and chill (to cool quickly), about 5 minutes.
    2. Make icings while cookies chill:
      1. Stir together confectioners sugar, corn syrup, lemon juice, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl until smooth. Transfer half of icing to another bowl and stir in cocoa, adding more water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to thin to same consistency as white icing.
    3. Ice cookies:
      1. Turn cookies flat sides up, then spread white icing over half of each and chocolate over other half.DSC_8133-Edit

  • 5 Creative Uses for Leftover Cookies

    Although we at Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies find it hard to believe there can possibly be any such thing as ‘too many cookies’, apparently it can happen! Most people struggle with the opposite problem, and can’t get enough delicious, buttery, crunchy goodness. However in the unlikely event that you somehow over-order and end up with leftover cookies which are past their best, there are plenty of things you can do with them. Some of the ideas we’ve found for using up stale cookies sound so good it’s worth buying some extras and leaving them to go stale on purpose! Here are a few of our favorites:

    Gimme Jimmy's Cookie Truffles! Gimme Jimmy's Cookie Truffles!

    1. Cookie Truffles

    These irresistible-looking truffles are super easy to make, require only a couple of ingredients and are the perfect simple and fun activity to do with kids. Blogger Hannah, of The Perfect Storm has used Gimmee Jimmy’s Rainbow Cookies to make her truffles – the bright colors work brilliantly with the white chocolate coating and colored sprinkles. You could use any kind of cookie, coating and decoration you like to create these little bites of pure yumminess. They’d make great homemade gifts packaged in a pretty box or jar, perfect for teacher presents, father’s day, valentines or just about any occasion!

    Gimmee Jimmy's Cookie Truffles

    2. Quick and Easy Cookie Crumble

    Make desserts, ice cream and fruit more exciting with the addition of a crushed cookie topping. Simply crumble your leftover cookies using a food processor or by placing in a plastic bag and bashing them with a rolling pin. Don’t crush them too finely – a few larger pieces here and there are a bonus! Sprinkle the mixture over any dessert of your choice, to turn something plain into a real treat. You could try combining with some nuts, chocolate chips or other optional extras to add interest, depending on the type of cookies you’re using.

                   image2 (1)

    3. Cheesecake Base

    Why use plain old digestives for your cheesecake base, when you can make things so much more interesting? Any type of cookie or biscuit will work for this recipe, and depending on whether you’re buying cookies especially or simply using up leftovers that you already have, you could flavor your cheesecake accordingly. Think lemon cheesecake with a gingernut base, or cherry cheesecake with a chocolate cookie base – delicious! Crush your cookies to a fine mixture, combine with melted butter and press firmly into the base of a tin, then add your chosen cheesecake filling and voila!

    4. Milk and Cookies Smoothie

    Create a rich, indulgent smoothie for a drink or dessert by adding crushed cookies to the mix. We love this recipe for a peanut butter, banana and cookies smoothie. The cookie crumbs give added texture, and make this smoothie as filling as a whole meal. You could even keep some of the cookies aside for dunking. Use whatever cookies you have to hand, and have fun experimenting with ingredients and flavors.

    milkcookiessmoothie-002

    5. Crockpot Cookie Pudding

    Similar in concept to a bread pudding, this inventive recipe for Slowcooker Cookie Pudding layers old, stale cookies with eggs, sugar and milk to create a fabulously warming and hearty pudding which would be wonderful served with custard on a cold winter’s day. As with the other ideas we’ve featured, use any kind of cookies you like. This is one recipe where it’s definitely worth making or buying extra cookies especially!

    Cookie Pudding

    If you don’t have the time or kitchen prowess to create a new dish from your leftover cookies, did you know it’s also possible to revive stale, hard cookies and make them (almost) as good as new? Place your cookies in an airtight jar or ziplock bag with some sliced apple and leave them overnight. The cookies will absorb the moisture from the fruit, making them soft and delicious again. Alternatively, if you think your family won’t be able to eat all your cookies before they get old, freeze some! They only take a few minutes to defrost in the oven or microwave, and when you eat them warm they taste even better!

  • Some Things You Didn't Know About The Cookie Monster!

    The Cookie Monster LOVES Gimmee Jimmy's Cookies

    If you were a kid any time from the 70's through to today, Sesame Street and the Muppets probably played some part in your childhood. Jim Henson's funny, sometimes cute, and often educational puppets have had an unparalleled run for a children's TV show, and have also had countless spin-offs for audiences of all ages, becoming an iconic part of popular culture. One of the most popular characters who has been around since the very early days of Sesame Street is of course the childlike, furry blue monster with googly eyes we know as the Cookie Monster. With over 40 years of television history behind him, it is not surprising that there are some interesting little known facts about this guy, which we're going to take a look at here:

    Cookie Monster Isn't His Real Name

    The character who eventually became the Cookie Monster we know and love was first conceived as a character called Wheel Stealer for an unaired commercial Jim Henson was involved with for a snack food company. Wheel Stealer was also used in a training video for IBM, weirdly. He looked slightly different from the 'final form' of Cookie Monster in that he had teeth and was a slightly different color, but his original job, just like CM's, was to have an insatiable hunger.

    Cookie Monster appeared in the first season of Sesame Street in 1969 as an undefined character, but his cookie obsessed ways and his name didn't develop until the second season of the show. However, in a 2004 Sesame Street episode, Cookie Monster sang a song that revealed his real name was Sid. This was backed up by a tweet from 'his' account run by Sesame Street, which said Cookie Monster was a nickname that stuck and he didn't remember his real name – but maybe it was Sidney.

    Baby Cookie Monster

    He Represents 'Babyishness' Rather Than Gluttony

    All of Sesame Street's main characters are supposed to represent a human weakness or foible, exaggerated for comic effect, but Cookie Monster is not designed to represent something as simple as gluttony. In a 1985 edition of Sesame Street Magazine, when talking about parents' concerns about how he talks incorrect grammar, one of the directors of the show said he represents 'babyishness personified' – which is why other characters speak better than him and he has an uncontrollable and selfish drive to eat!

    He'll eat anything from machines to car fenders, so it is hard to pick a favorite cookie flavor for him, but we think due to his childlike nature he'd love Gimme Jimmys colorful rainbow cookies best of all.

    Controversial or not, a cookie is a cookie

    He's Been Controversial!

    Cookie Monster may have the comedic trait of being obsessed with cookies, but some people have seen this as no laughing matter over the years, with some (perhaps slightly killjoy type) people saying his fondness for sugary treats sets a bad example. He has been used in health awareness campaigns and segments of the show that promote healthy eating, but the show never gave in to controversy and kept his character the same, even poking fun on the show about rumors he was going to be changed into the far less funny sounding 'Veggie Monster'.

    So there you have it, some little known facts about one of America's most iconic TV characters!

  • 2016 Presidential Election: Pick Your Candidate's Flavor.

    What kind of cookies will the next president be eating in the Whitehouse?

    The US presidential election 2016 is a huge source of interest at the moment, both at home and abroad, as people watch the front running candidates vying for votes. Whether you have already got a favorite or not, there is no denying that this year's candidates are a very diverse bunch, with Clinton and Sanders, Trump and Cruz all bringing different views, ideas and personalities to the race. There are lots of different ways people have described their different characters, likening them to everything from fast food to characters from TV's Game of Thrones, but to add a new comparison to the mix, here we're going to take a look at which flavor of Gimmee Jimmys Cookies each of these candidates is most like!

    The Bernie Baby Loves Oatmeal Cookies

    Bernie Sanders – Oatmeal and Raisin

    Bernie Sanders is by far the oldest candidate, and so the classic oatmeal and raisin seems to suit him perfectly. He's also a big hit with the highly liberal 'hipster' community, who love all things natural and have a taste for the retro. Oatmeal and raisin is a flavor some people love, and others find to be a bit of a compromise if they were hoping for a more decadent or flashy flavor. It is always a good seller, however, and those who like it find it to be their favorite comfort food.

    Well, good thing we deliver to Washington!

    Hillary Clinton – White Chocolate Chip

    While Hillary Clinton has supporters of both genders, and is remembered just as much for being Bill Clinton's loyal wife who stood by him during times of scandal as she is for being arguably the most likely candidate for first female US president, a lot of analysts believe that female swing voters, and whether Hillary can appeal to them, will be the key to her success or failure. Like Hillary and the idea of a woman president, white chocolate is especially popular with women, and white chocolate chip cookies are often the ladies' first choice!

    Don't forget your M&M's before getting into the republican ring!

    Ted Cruz – M&M and Chocolate Chip

    Ted Cruz is the Republican candidate of choice for Republicans who aren't so keen on Donald Trump. Trump is a divisive figure even in his own party, and Cruz represents an alternative. He is also the youngest candidate, and appeals to those who want a statesman who is not considered out of touch with their generation. His cookie flavor is M&M and chocolate chip – an interesting flavor that appeals to young people, but isn't the obvious choice.

    We are happy to help you keep THAT campaign promise Mr Trump!

    Donald Trump – Marble Cookies

    Before he entered into politics, Trump was best known as a successful businessman and owner of lavish, glamorous premises. He would be best represented by marble cookies, which resemble the same opulent materials used in the hotels and casinos under his brand. Luxurious, rich, and not really very good for you, marble cookies, for a lot of voters, represent Trump perfectly!

    John Kasich - (Unknown)

    ssshhhh....The truth is, our writer forgot that John was still in the race...forgive us?

    So there you have it – political candidates as cookies! Do you agree with these choices, or is your favorite cookie matched to the wrong candidate?
