Forget the predictable – flowers, chocolates, breakfast in bed (no, keep this one) – Moms will want to savor cookies from Keep It Sweet Desserts, a new online bakery and dessert catering company.

“Launching Keep It Sweet Desserts is a dream-come-true,” said Lauren Lilling, founder and baker. “I have always had a passion for desserts and baking, and now with Keep It Sweet Desserts, I have the opportunity to do what I love and simultaneously bring sweetness to others.”

And in celebration of sweet moms, the Weehawken, New Jersey-based, shop will be selling Mother’s Day Strawberries and Cream Cookies from only $24.50 a dozen, for a limited time only. These are large moist delectable strawberry cookies sandwiched with marshmallow butter cream, sure to satisfy hearty appetites. We’re also fans of the dome-shaped Triple Chocolate Cookies – soft, dense, and super chocolatey in every bite.

Goodies from Keep It Sweet Desserts are available by the dozen and are priced from $19.50, with a Cookie of the Month Club beginning at $82. Desserts can be shipped anywhere in the continental U.S., with dessert catering available in New York, New Jersey, and Eastern Pennsylvania.

While Moms normally like to share, keep your hands off these cookies! For more information on Keep It Sweet Desserts, please visit
