Olive’s Keep Calm & Carry On Christmas Survival Guide: Oakville’s Elm Hill Cookies

Not quite into the Christmas spirit yet? No time to bake? Here’s an easy fix: stand outside the Oakville shop of artisanal cookie maker Elm Hill Cookies and breathe in the delicious fragrance wafting out onto the sidewalk. That`s organic unbleached flour, butter, brown sugar, and all natural goodness you are inhaling. Now step inside this tiny Kerr Street shop – brimming with wee gingerbread houses and cookies in all sorts of flavours from traditional to chic – and say hel-lo Christmas (fade in Charlie Brown Christmas music).

Elm Hill`s Double Ginger Bites are my favourite: sized just right and sprinkled with sparkly sugar, they are perfect for a Christmas cookie tray. These little gems are soft and chewy, sweet and warmly spiced, with a double hit of ground ginger and crystallized ginger – just enough to make me exclaim olive it!

I’ll bet this will be Santa’s first stop on Christmas Eve and after that, he’ll only pretend to nibble on all the rest of the cookies left under all the other trees.

    Oh yum! I was given Elm Hill Cookies as a gift one time and they were amazing and beautifully wrapped. Are they expensive Olive?

  • Olive  says:

    For all the love and care and natural goodness that goes into these cookies, I’d say they are worth every penny!
