For many, baking cookies is a December holiday ritual. From cookie exchanges to holiday gatherings, these treats are a sweet way of connecting with friends and family. Some of us have our go-to cookie recipes, while others like to try new ones each year. And now, New York Times Cooking (NYT Cooking) is helping to make December memorable with their new Cookie Getaways.
NYT Cooking is a subscription service that offers subscribers access to hundreds of recipes and cooking guides. Users can save their favorite recipes in a virtual recipe box, and can even make public and private notes. For only $40 a year, it’s a great resource for both novice and well-seasoned home cooks.
For the first time, NYT Cooking is offering Cookie Getaways. There are two different locations: The Cookie Cabin located in New York’s Catskills or the Cookie Cabana in Palm Springs, California.
This December New York Times Cooking introduced Cookie Getaways
The Cookie Cabin is located at Duet House in Kerhonkson, NY. Including the main house and a guest house, the Cookie Cabin has 4 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 6 guests. There’s an outdoor hot tub, 2 wood-burning fireplaces, heated floors and more.
The Cookie Cabana also sleeps 6 guests between 4 bedrooms in two buildings. There’s an outdoor pool with views of the mountains, outdoor gas fire pit, ping pong table and more. Both properties welcome children, however the Cookie Cabana’s pool is not gated and the Cookie Cabin’s fireplaces and stairs do not have guards. So, adult supervision is necessary.
Both Cookie Getaways include a tablet with full access to the NYT cooking app, so visitors can easily find all of their favorite cookie recipes. The kitchens are stocked with ingredients to bake the New York Times new cookie recipes as well as Wirecutter’s top recommended baking tools to help visitors make the best cookies possible. Guests are also provided with to-go containers so they can bring home all of their leftover treats (that is, if they haven’t eaten them all!). All guests have to do is show up ready to bake! As an added bonus, visitors will also receive a free 1-year New York Times All Access Subscription.
U.S. residents were able to start booking these cookie getaways beginning November 22nd. The two-night stay overnight experience, available during the weekends of Dec. 2-4, Dec. 9-11 and Dec. 16-18, only cost $325 per night.
Imagine being able to enjoy an overnight with friends and/or family, getting to spend quality time together AND get your holiday cookie baking done?! It’s no wonder that the cookie getaways were booked up by the end of the day!
We can only hope that NYT Cooking will offer more food themed getaways that sound as fabulous as these Cookie Getaways!
