Celebrating 60 Years of Bess and Baking

Bess it up!

It’s 2020 and we’re celebrating Cookies by Bess’ 60 Year Anniversary!  Bess Hoffman published her cookie book, Cookies by Bess, in 1960. In 2017 Bess’s Grand-daughter, Janet Hoffman, launched www.cookiesbybess.com to honor Bess’ baking obsession and share her recipes with the world.  Since then, thousands of bakers have visited our website and baked Bess’ recipes.


To help celebrate our 60th Anniversary of baking Bess' cookies, we are offering this limited edition Cookies by Bess branded apron. A great keepsake for Cookies by Bess fans and a great gift for all cookie bakers.

This 2-color logo is embroidered on a 100% polyester machine washable crisp white apron. Perfect for a long day in the kitchen prepping for the holidays.

Price: $28.00 plus $10 priority shipping
(contact us for additional shipping and quantity options)

“I can’t wait until I get up and make a batch of cookies today. You’d be surprised what that does for your day and you’ll never stop at making one batch.”
