Lil Bruiser’s

Sometimes I like to feature Los Angeles made products. I came across these kits on Instagram and thought they were so stinking cute. Imagine making Christmas cookies with your kids without having the mess of baking. It would be a Christmas miracle!

They came in a classic kraft package wrapped in bakers twine. Madeline went to work right away making cookies for everyone in the family.
Christmas-2017-57How cute is the packaging! They would make perfect gifts. Madeline couldn’t wait to open it up to see what was inside.

It came with 12 complete Linzer cookies (12 tops and 12 bottoms), a jar of fresh, home-made jam, and a spoon to spread it, a small shaker bottle of powdered sugar, and instructions easy enough for a preschooler to follow.



Don’t forget to dip your finger in there too cause the jam was just that good.


I had a great time making these with Madeline. Not only was it beautifully packaged, but the cookies were the best Linzer cookies I’ve ever had! They were crumbly and buttery. There was a nuttiness from the ground almonds baked into the cookies and the raspberry jam was bright and fresh, tasting obviously home-made along with the cookies.

There’s also a vegan option on the site!

The cookies are baked to order and are good for 2 weeks. They are $25 a box and I’m actually going to order some for all my friend’s kids as Christmas presents. They would also make a good cookie-swap or white elephant gift.

You can order some too at


Look at that face enjoying the fruits of her labor!
