Where to Buy Your Holiday Cookies in Metro Detroit

Holidays are hectic, and baking cookies may not top your to-do list. If you opt for store-bought holiday cookies, boost your spirits with these showstoppers.

It’s OK if you don’t have time to bake your holiday cookies this season. With all the shopping, decorating and spending quality time with your loved ones, it’s understandable that baking seems to always get put on the back burner. 

So I’ve gathered a bunch of fantastic cookie havens in metro Detroit for you to try. Here’s the twist: use this as the guide for a festive cookie trail the kids won’t soon forget. You’re the master of this self-guided adventure — start and stop wherever the sugar rush leads you. Hit every spot or savor them one by one. It’s your call — just remember to sprinkle each moment with fun. 

Some even offer at-home decorating kits with the cookies already baked and ready for decorating, which will make this Christmas and Hanukkah a breeze!

This bakery will be doing DIY Cookie Kits as well as Paint Your Own Cookie Kits for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas. Also, it has holiday-themed sugar cookies available at its counter.

The gift baskets, available by pre-order in a variety of sizes, can be tailored toward different holiday celebrations.
