2/8 You might not have the time or inclination to whip up a few dozen batches of Grandma’s secret oatmeal raisin cookies, but you can ask your baker if he can do it for you! Simply supply him with the recipe and packaging to wrap up a few cookies for each guest to take home. You could also order your favourite cookies. Eleni’s Crisp Collection offers seven varieties; you can pass them out in their packaging or re-wrap them in something that matches your wedding’s theme and colour palette. If you’re looking for something with even more personality, check out Eleni’s themed cookies, which come in a variety of designs.
