Frequently Asked Questions

 

How fast will I get my cookies?

Currently we request a 2-3 day notice before you would like your cookies. In addition, we deliver in the evening hours. So if you would like cookies for a Friday event or casual munching we recommending placing your order Monday or early Tuesday and schedule the delivery for Thursday evening. For orders of 10 or more dozen we request as much of an advanced notice as possible.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact us will be glad to help you navigate the ordering process. 

What is with the name? Why "The WhiteHouse Bakery?"

Derik White is our founder and Chief Cookie Creator. He began creating cookies in his family's three bedroom apartment as D_Licious Cookies. After the first year of the cookie business they moved into a house and his goal was to have a bakery in the basement. He then turned the business into an LLC, since he was baking in the house and his last name is White, The WhiteHouse Bakery was a natural fit. This name allows room for more than just d_licious cookies as other baked goods will be coming in the future. 

What is special about our cookies?

Our Chief Cookie Creator thoughtfully writes each recipe before he creates a small batch to be taste tested. Adjustments are made in response to taste-test feedback. Then we taste-test again and again until each recipe is perfected. So there is no need to worry; each recipe is tested by many before it is declared "D_Licious" and released to the public. Please let us know if you would like to join the taste-testing team.  

How are our cookies so D_Licious?

Our Chief Cookie Creator combed through several reviews and different forms of literature on key ingriedents and equipment. He then conducted blind taste test for some of the key ingriedents to see which was prefered by his friends and co-workers. To top it off, each cookie is created with care, passion, and you in mind. 

Do we have a vegan or dairy free cookie?

No. Our Chief Cookie Creator has not yet researched these options. So, he would not create a vegan or dairy free cookie just to sell you a cookie. He wants to ensure all cookies meet the D_Licious standards before any cookie Is released to the public. 
Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you will know when we enter the vegan/dairy free cookie zone. 
How do we create our gluten-free cookies?
We cannot tell you all of our secrets but basically our gluten-free cookies are the same as the classic version except we pulled a switcharoe with the flour source. Below you can see the ingriedents of our gluten-free flour.
