Christmas Cookie Trays

Every Year the snow starts to fly, the Christmas trees go up, and the holiday music is playing on the radio, and in our hearts…. and it can only mean one thing…COOKIE TRAY TIME!!!! cookietray3

Our absolute favorite time of the year, ugly Christmas sweaters and all, we hand made over 12,000 cookies for you and your families holiday enjoyment.

Each of us has a favorite, whether is Molasses (Lisa our star Sat employee) Peanut Butter Blossoms (Johns favorite) Russian Tea Cakes (mine and Melissa’s favorite which may or may not be eaten by the handfuls and pocketed in cheeks throughout the day…dont judge!)  each of our cookies are made from a special recipe, with one purpose in mind, to bring our family favorites to your family and to show your a holiday blessing from us.

Make our days a little merrier and order yourself a Cookie Tray, or a holiday pie, and spread the holiday cheer!

Blessing others with FREE PIES!

Every year Mixin’ It Up chooses several different families in Minnesota, that you our customers nominate, and blesses them with holiday pies. Image result for pie giveaway

We all know someone who has fallen on hard times. Maybe you know someone who just got diagnosed with Celiac disease, and are struggling to figure out the holiday season. What about a mom who is single and trying to make ends meet. Perhaps a family member who is dealing with an illness that makes the holidays harder to do get through all the baking.

We are asking you, our customers and friends, to nominate families who could use an extra step of cheer in their holiday this year. We would love to partner with you to make this happen for some of our local families.

We are asking from you, please email us their name (and we would also love to hear if there is a story you would like to share as to why they are being nominated). You can go on Facebook to tag people, send us a private message or even give us a call. Our hearts desire is to bless those in need and to partner with you in doing it! What a great feeling for this, the most magical time of the year!

Lets make someones season better, and a lot tastier! We will chose winners on Tues Nov 20th, so now is the time to get nominating!!

Me oh My, I want PIE!

It is a fact that we “eat” with our eyes. When you think of the ultimate dessert, do you think of something hearty, light, fruit flavored? Or something in between?

When I think of the ultimate desert; immediately the pairing of chocolate and peanut butter come to mind. Our Peanut Butter Chocolate Ganache Pie is the Alpha of all pies. From it’s delicious oreo crust, to the peanut butter filling, or if like me; you LOVE the rich, ganache topping; this is the pie for you!

This showstopper will surely be the centerpiece of any special gathering. When you bite into this decadent pie, you are tasting a little slice of heaven. The semi-sweet oreo crust is paired with a creamy, peanut buttery filling. Then you add on the luscious, ganache topping; topped off with exquisite peanut butter frosting accents and sprinkles of our deluxe peanut butter crumble. What more could you ask for in a hearty, decadent dessert that will surely please any guest.

 

Be sure to stop in and pick up your scrumptious showstopper for your next gathering. We have a limited supply of these on hand; don’t let this amazing pie walk out the door without YOU. Call ahead to place your order to receive your pie just in time for the holidays

I’m Fallin for you cookie…

Seriously, I mean I love fall…like love it so much it makes me want to wear warm fuzzy socks, sit on the couch with the fireplace roaring, and drink a lot of coffee.

Well, to be fair the drinking coffee part comes no matter what the season, but the other things, they I only feel really like doing in the fall. I mean, its all the beauty that Minnesota can offer, somewhat cool temps, but yet we are not freezing our hind ends off…yet!

So you may ask what this has to do with cookies…well, frankly in my life there are so many things that have to do with cookies because, I love them! To me, they are the perfect little snack. The right size so I can feel like I am having a little something, but not so much that when I get up the next morning I dont feel like I have been in a sugar coma! Unless I eat 12, but than, I was going for the sugar coma, so I got what I needed 😉

Molasses cookies SCREAM fall to me, they are warm, homey, and sooo yummy.  They are the number one sellers in the store, for a reason! They arent snappy like their gingerbread counterpart, they are soft, chewy, and with just enough sugar to make you consider going back for another…and another.

So now is the time! Get your bag of this amazing cookie mix, make some for the kids, your spouse, or most importantly yourself! And enjoy! You will be so happy you did, after all, fall goes by quickly so embrace it with cookies!

Our heart to yours…cookies and life

Today, in honor of our love for all things Fall, and Molasses, we wanted to share our “reason” why, and how these yummy cookies came to be.

May we introduce you to Lisa, and her Molasses cookie story (yeah its a thing!)

The Story
It started when a sweet, elderly gentleman came into Mixin’ It Up looking for Molasses cookies for his lovely wife. He’d gotten them once before at a bakery, and his wife loved them.

Now, needing Gluten free, he stopped by our bakery to request his wives favorite, Molasses. Not just any molasses would do, it has to be chewy, soft, and melt in your mouth good, just the way she remembered.  The sad news, we didnt carry Molasses cookies…yet!

Making this special trip to town just for cookies, was something he felt joy in doing, and seeing his devastation, Lisa, one of our MIU bakers, determined, “I HAVE to do something!”

So she personally took on the task of creating and developing the best possible gluten-free and dairy free, molasses cookie.

Now that gentleman and many other customers enjoy our delicious cookies all year long. Lisa has prided herself on making these (and when she sees her favorite customer pull up in front of the store, you will often see her going out to the car to hand deliver these wonderful little sweet treats!)
Now you can make Lisa’s famous gluten-free Molasses cookies right in your own home, filled with deliciousness and love – from Lisa’s heart to yours!molasses

Rice Craft Fair, what a wonderful weekend

Image result for thank you

What a wonderful weekend! The sun was shining, the birds were singing (well it might have been me singing while enjoying the sunshine, but we will go with birds, they sound better!) and we had a fabulous time getting to know and talk to so many of you.

We had about 1,000 people or so come and stop by our booth at the fair. Sold a lot of food, and had a great many laughs with our customers. It was so fun to meet so many of you who said “well I have heard of your store but hadnt had a chance to get in there yet!” And serve you probably some of your first, and tastiest, gluten free goodies.

Our hearts are continually grateful to you for all the support you give us, as a small business, who hand makes ALL of our products, you show us such gratitude for our hard work which just makes us work even harder to bring you the best tasting Gluten Free food you can find in Minnesota (and across the nation now that we ship).

Now, we will kick up our feet, sit and sip some coffee and dream of wonderful and tasty foods to make for you THIS WEEKEND, FOR NATIONAL BAKERY DAY!!!

Love to you all, and gratitude in my heart ~Jessi Brinkman (owner and goofy facebook live girl!)
