Dear Dawn, cookies- they are so magical and whimsical- capturing the Hearts of all of us who love Summer and memories of days at the  Beach gone by. I thank you for that. I think the SAil boats  might be everyone's favorite! Hope you are getting to enjoy at least some of your beautiful days by the Sea!  

Very Fondly, Susan

Hi Dawn Marie - Just a belated note to tell you that your sand dollar cookies were a such hit with the elementary school teachers! Your professional touch beats our ( or anybody's) bake and take by a landslide! Will be back again soon for other events!

Many thanks

I purchased the Sanddollar cookies for my wedding shower, and I could not have been more pleased!!  The cookies were tastier than I ever expected them to be!  The packaging was beautiful, not one cookie was broken and the tags and bows were all just perfect.  They were the hit of the party!  I had ordered a bunch extra, and my guests loved them so much that they took the extras home with them!!  What a success!  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Plum Island Cookie Company to anyone!!  I was extremely happy with their service and quality!!  Yum!!!

Hello Dawn, I'm writing to thank you for the cookies that you put together for me. I had won a $100 gift certificate from North Shore Magazine and had contacted you about getting the cookies for the weekend of Sept. 25th for a birthday party. I wanted to let you know that the cookies were a big hit! Everyone loved them & I'm hoping that you will receive more business from some of the people that were at the party. I told them all to go to your website & order cookies! When I have another event, I'll be sure to contact you again! Great job!

All the best to you, 

Kelly B


We absolutely love your cookies.  When I visit a shoppe "Ipswich Shellfish Company"  I ALWAYS make it a point to pick up your delicious cookies. THANK YOU THANK YOU Your fans, of delicious delictables..

Denise & Sid B


Got them -- they are beautiful and perfect! I can't wait to display them and give them out at Connor's party on Sunday. Thank you for the beautiful work!



Dawn, OMG the cookies were fantastic! A huge hit! Thank God you generously put together a gift basket for Bailey and Tom because there were few left after the reception. The cookies looked great, tasted even better and the presentation was fabulous. Bailey was really thrilled. Thank you so much. I'll look for you on Plum Island and good luck with Martha.



We got the cookies and they are wonderful!!!  Thank you so much!!!!



Hi Dawn Marie, I wanted to take a minute to let you know the cookies were a bit hit at the shower!  They were absolutely beautiful and delicious. If and when I can get the pictures downloaded, I will send you one. Thank you for your help and flexibility!

I received my package this morning! Thank you so much - they look delicious and the packaging was beautiful. :)

Thanks Dawn:  The cookies were a great hit and I passed out your cards!  I thought you might like to see what the finished centerpieces looked like; it was fun putting it all together! I'll be sure to be seeing you in the future. Thank you again; I appreciated your generosity.  



Hi Dawn, We ate your cookies in a matter of minutes. 

They were SO GOOD! Shannon L


Thanks again, Dawn!  The cookies were great!  My parents actually won them and they were delicious!


Dear Dawn, Thanks! Just so you know....I saw the piece they wrote about you in the Boston Globe this week....and I ordered the sand dollar cookies right after reading it! 



hi dawn marie.  i heard about you from my friend, Michelle, who bought them as end of year gifts for some teachers. that is what i am purchasing them for...for a small christmas thank you.  they are beautiful and i am going to be in touch in the late spring again.  

thank you. happy thanksgiving to you too.



Dawn, The cookies arrived today.  You wouldn't believe how squashed a couple of the boxes were.  Even some of the inside boxes were smashed.  Miraculously, all of the cookies appear to be in good condition.  If it weren't for your great packing job, we would have ended up with 32 pounds of cookie crumbs!  :) I'm sure the cookies will be a big hit with the wedding guests.  Thank you for everything.

Best regards,



Your cookies are impeccable works of art and certainly appreciate the work you put into them. I found your cookies in a boutique in New Hampshire and was really thrilled when they tasted as good as they looked.

Hi Dawn. The cookies were a big hit! Thanks, they looked just beautiful and were yummy.



Hi Dawn I am sitting here with a glass of wine and one of your sand dollar cookies-so awesome! Thank you so much for your great cookie recipe- everyone loved the COOKIE! I wish you the Best and I have no doubt with your success! THANK YOU SOOO much!!!!



Hi Dawn, What an awesome surprise!!  Thanks so much for the wonderful cookies(I already had two) and I’m going to save the rest to share with my kids.  That was so nice of you.  I hope we can work together at some point to get the word out about these delicious treats. 

Best regards, Michelle G


Dawn The cookies were awesome!  Everyone loved them! 

Thank you!



We got the cookies and they are wonderful!!!  Thank you so much!!!!



Hi Dawn Marie, 

Thank you so much! Your donation is greatly appreciated. So very sweet of you. Take care.  



Dawn Marie, You are too wonderful! Your gift of the adorable plush monkey and christmas tree cookies is adorable. My daughter fell in love with it! It made me think that you should speak to the local hospitals --- Anna Jaques, Beverly, Childrens, Dana Farber, etc...and strike a deal to sell them through their gift shops or on-line through your site. I think if you developed some kind of related cookie design, like a bandaid or something, it would make a wonderful "get-well" gift.  Thanks again for sending one of the pails to PA. You're a lifesaver. I wish you a warm and wonderful holiday season and hope that Santa brings you lots of business next year. 


Hi Dawn Marie,  They are so beautiful.  I didn't even notice the envelope in the bag but thanks for the magnet and I am passing all of the cards and flyers around to all my friends.  Thanks so much for the door to door service it was much appreciated.  Hope to do business with you again, Julia


Dawn, I just got my cookies and I love them!  They are so yummy and cute!  I can't thank you enough!

 Thanks again, Heather


Hi Dawn I received the cookies today. They look terrific and I know everyone will enjoy them. Thanks for your followup on the shipping. We look forward to having your cookies in the future.

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the sand dollar cookies! Not only were they beautiful to look at, but very delicious as well. Our guests absolutely loved them! Thanks again,

Hi Dawn, Last spring I ordered your sand dollar cookies for bridal shower favors and they were a big hit. Now i’m planning my sisters shower…I’d like to order the bridal cookie favors.


Everyone loved your cookies. I put your cards next to the cookies. All the cards were taken by the end of the evening.

Thank you, Kathy C


I recently purchased "Little Piggies in the Sand" as favors for my daughter's baby shower.  So cute - little baby 's feet , gently placed in sand (sugar) in clear cellophane bags & tied with light blue raffia.  Dawn even personalized each bag with baby Benjamin's name! Not only did they make a beautiful presentation, but the guests left with a delicious treat to enjoy later.

Dawn and the Plum Island Cookie Company provided such a high level of customer service and a wonderful array of cookies, I'm looking forward to the next event!     

Newbury, MA

I Think it is safe to say that the cookies from the Plum Island Cookie Company have become quite a fixture at any of my family's events or functions!!

The first time I ordered was 4 years ago for my sister's baby shower, and then again for my friend's baby shower, and then we had them at both showers for my own children, birthdays, holidays and of course I had to have them at my wedding! For our wedding we got the pear cookies and Dawn personalized each cookie with a hangtag reading "Keith and Candice, a perfect pair" along with matching ribbons to my wedding colors, they looked beautiful! And all the guests LOVED them!

The hard work and dedication that goes into each individually hand wrapped cookie is amazing and beautiful, not to mention delicious too!!

I highly recommend ordering cookies from Dawn, you will not be disappointed, I know I'm not and I will continue to order cookies!

Dawn, thank you so much for making every event and function that much more special!!!

I fell in love with Plum Island Cookies when when Dawn Marie sent me some Sand Dollars as a gift and to show me how our ground vanilla bean enhances the "sand" with each cookie. Dawn's cookies are exceptional in apprearance, flavor and texture. I order them for special gifts; what better than an edible one?

We bought the cookies for an Anniversary party and were very pleased with the quality and presentation of the cookies.  I would definitely buy them again in the future.

Dear Dawn,
We decorated each place setting at our daughter's seaside wedding at Misslewood , with your beautiful Sand Dollar Cookies .... Everyone loved  them.  The cookies didn't just look wonderful, but were delicious . I could not have asked for more .... Thank You.
Hamilton, MA
Our son and daughter-in-law chose a New England Clambake for their rehearsal dinner before their New York wedding.  I had heard of Plum Island sand dollar and starfish cookies so I ordered them as favors for each of our guests.  What a hit they were!  It was the finishing touch at each person's place and they are every bit as good as they are adorable to look at!  
Beverly, MA
Dear Dawn,
I wanted to thank you for your great, reliable service.
As you know we were in an usual position when our son and fiance told us they didn't want a wedding cake. We knew they needed something sweet.
I forgot to mention it was a beach wedding. Then I heard about your sand dollar cookies and it was the most appropiate sweet to end a wedding on the beach. we layered the cookies in a huge clam shell. they ar indivually wrapped with colored ribbon of your choice.
I might add that the cookies were a huge success. They were delicious.
I would highly recommend them to  anyone.

Hi Dawn,
Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed your high quality, delicious butter cookies. THe delicate texture and rich taste are second to none. I consider myself a butter cookie "afficianado" as I am always searching for the best. I have definitely found that in your recipe. I can't wait to enjoy them again soon!
Maple Glen, PA
Dear Dawn, I have been ordering from Plum Island Cookie Company for a year now and have placed at least 12 orders. Each and every order that has been received by my staff, family and friends is followed up with a call to me to rave about the cookies. Your cookies are always fresh, beautiful in design and presented in a lovely fashion. I am so excited about the variety of cookies and can't wait for my son to become engaged so I can plan a party with your cookie favors! Congrats to you :)
