Fancypants: cookies for all occasions

[ 28 ] September 4, 2008 |

Barnyard on kid o infoFancypants Bakery specializes in making delicious, buttery, beautifully decorated shortbread cookies. These 100 percent nut-free home-baked treats are made from scratch every day with all natural ingredients in their East Walpole Bakery under the direction of Maura Duggan, her partner, Justin Housman, and a few local moms who design, decorate, and package the cookies.

At first glance you will be mesmerized by the artfully painted masterpieces, and at first bite you will be hooked on the light fluffy cookie paired with frosting that is not too sweet but sweet enough to make it the perfect treat even when you are not having a party.Pf Cust Clipboard-1

Browse the cookie gallery and you will find cookies to match almost any party theme, hobby, season, or special event. Buy cookies individually wrapped as party favors or buy a fancy gift-boxed set of 6, 9, or 12 cookies appropriate for any occasion.

Fancypants also makes custom designed cookies. I particularly liked the Director’s Clipboard since my sons have been nicknamed “Siskel and Ebert” for their habit of giving movie reviews and their growing knowledge of movie trivia.

    My six year old daughter is anaphylactic to peanuts, tree nuts and sesame. It is VERY difficult to find SAFE baked goods. FancyPants Bakery is a life saver! We have purchased these cookies for all three of my daughters birthday party goodie treat to send home with the kids. We have purchased these cookies to give as gifts to our friends with food allergies. We have purchased these cookies to give as gifts to the Teachers at school. Maura and Justin are FANTASTIC and we are thrilled they make such a great product!

    I had the gift shaped cookies w/ purple icing as favors at my rehearsal dinner, they were a huge hit! I recently sent a gift box to a friend after her mother died (rather than flowers, and bc the house full of kids needed something special too) and they were once again a huge hit! Maura and Justin go out of their way to help with special orders and their cookies are insanely delicious!!! You MUST try them if you haven’t!

    Adorable. Scrumptious. Addictive! Warning: at least one large glass of milk is required – or a cuppa tea. Yum!

    I have even devoured one for breakfast!

    These cookies are DISH DELISH!!!!

  12. Katy C. says:

    These cookies are phenomenal. I love all the designs. Everyone raved about the baby bottle cookies that Fancypants did for my baby shower. Now that she is a toddler, if I need her to stay in the cart while grocery shopping, I let her eat one of these cookies and by the time she’s done I’m ready to check out! (not to mention she’s full and I don’t have to give her dinner! 🙂

  13. Cat Horn says:

    These cookies are the best! They are so appealing to all ages. I can’t decide which I like more…the way they look or the way they taste!

  14. Kristie says:

    This would make a great Get Well gift for my grandfather who has spent his whole life farming and is now in the hospital.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. Susan says:

    My son is severely allergic to peanuts and treenuts and I found Fancypants bakery on a food allergy web-site. Not only does Fancypants bakery provide excellent customer service, but this is the first “bakery” cookie my son has ever had at 5 years of age. They are not only cute cookies, but absolutely delicious!! I know because I get the left over crumbs!

  16. Joey says:

    We have your cookies on every single holiday!! Everyone gets to choose which one they want. On Thanksgiving, I kept teasing people that chose the turkey, “You are what you eat!!” (I think I’m funny!! haha) Have also had them for baby shower, (little pink onesies) wedding favors (little wedding cakes). Oh, and did I mention the taste?? Unbelievably delicious!! Some people like to have a bite and then later have another. NOT ME!! I have to eat the whole cookie with my coffee!! Thank you for the pleasures!!

  17. Judi says:

    Justin & Maura sent us cookies for our 60th birthday party, decorated with our likeness. The cookies were excellent and everyone at the party (80+ guests) who had the cookies said how nice they were and ho good they tasted. (My wife and I had difficulty eating our likeness, however, but it sure tasted good!)

  26. Carey Johnson says:

    I have not had the pleasure of trying a Fancypants cookie as of yet, but have two sons age 3 and 5 who are the biggest cookie monsters you will ever meet. I am also enjoying the wonderful Fancypants website and looking at all the beautiful designs. Keep up the good work Justin and Maura!!!
