Spring is Busy for Cookies!

As a growing business, each month is a new adventure! More Houstonians are getting to know us and our tasty all-butter cookies! Favorite items include cookie gift boxes for shipping, our Toffee Pecan cookies, Snickerdoodles and hand-decorated shortbread cookies. This Easter we have four designs that can be ordered through our website. Click here to see details. Kids of all ages will love these bright and cheerful decorated cookies. And, as always, if you have a special request, just let us know.

This year we are also participating in the Bellaire Arts Festival on Saturday, April 18, 2009 from 9AM to 5PM. It takes place at 5100 Bellaire Blvd. at South Rice Ave. It's really a fun time for families to get out (before the Houston heat sets in!) and have a fun day of visiting local crafts people. There will also be lots of food, including cookies from Michael's Cookie Jar. For more information on the festival, please visit the Bellaire Art Festival website.

Michael's Cookie Jar Supports Bo's Place

We receive dozens of requests each year to contribute fresh baked cookies to many worthy causes. The Third Annual Girls' Night Out: Champagne on the Champs d'Elysees, which benefits Bo's Place in Houston, Texas, is one such worthy cause. Girls’ Night Out will be held Thursday, March 26, 2009 at the Advantage BMW Midtown dealership (1305 Gray Street). This is an evening for “bubbles, baubles, and bites” for 600 of Houston’s finest ladies! The shopping is spectacular, the food is fabulous and the fellowship is second to none, all for the benefit of Bo’s Place.

According to their own vision statement, "Bo’s Place is the nation’s premier bereavement center providing compassionate grief support services, research, and education in order to facilitate the healing of children and families who have experienced the death of a loved one."

This is a home-grown, one-of-a-kind service which is what we like to support. Please visit Michael's Cookie Jar booth to view many of our most popular all-butter cookie selections. Every purchase of cookies will help support the wonderful work at Bo's Place. For more information on the event or Bo's Place, visit this link.
