A 'taste of home' is the biggest 'Thank You' that you can give a soldier! Support our troops with a dozen fresh-baked homemade cookies. Butter Maid Bakery has been family owned and operated right here in the United States since 1955. We take the time to bake the old fashioned way, with only the finest ingredients. We've delivered tens of thousands of military cookie care packages to our soldiers overseas, and it wouldn't be possible without all your support!

How It Works... For every dozen cookies you purchase above, an extra dozen homemade cookies are added to the next care package in line being sent to a Military APO/FPO/DPO address. We'll include a flyer in your soldier's care package explaining all about "Operation: Sweetest Appreciation".

I'm not ordering anything else, can I just donate this dozen? Absolutely, simply put your own address down as the shipping address at checkout. It will be ignored, and your order will be sent to the next in line package as usual.

Thank you!
Dear Butter Maid Bakery,
Thank you so much for the cookies!! They were a wonderful gift and we were able to visit with many airmen and soldiers who were extremely appreciative!! Your cookies were a luxury to us as dough out here is expensive to get. I'm sure it was the best thing many airmen had to eat that day! Thank you for continuing your support with Operation Sweetest Appreciation. Youngstown, Ohio is lucky to have your people and company. We very much look forward to (hopefully!) more cookies.
Thanks again, Senior Airman Regina Fragale.

Awesome treat
I was one of the recipients of a care package your organization shipped to my soldier (SGT Shaw) here in Afghanistan. I want to thank you for such an awesome treat. They were delicious and arrived without being all broken up as most baked good do. We are honored to be blessed with such treats from your bakery. One of the soldiers said it reminded them of being a kid and baking cookies with their mother and being able to eat the cookie dough. Thank you again we passed out the 40 dozen amongst the work areas and to the soldiers. From the 518th RSSB TF Raging Bulls we thank you for the gift. - Edward Woodard

Made our day!
We received your care package in the mail today and it made all of sailors day!!!! The chocolate chip cookies melted in my mouth. They are absolutely delicious. We are very, very thankful for the large selection that you sent us and we will thoroughly enjoy them. They were still fresh after being sent out on the 7th of May. We cannot thank you enough!!! Thank you for thinking of us. We cannot get items like this from the location (currently deployed) we're at and it certainly reminds us of home.
Thank you again,

Brought me to tears!
I am currently deployed to a remote location and received a care package from your bakery. The thought of you all supporting myself and the other sailors on this mission almost brought me to tears!!! Not to mention the cookies were soooooo good! They were the highlight of our day, week and month! To have something that taste that good over here is a blessing! We could never repay you for this act of kindness you showed to us. This bakery is truly a blessing.
We love you and Thank you!

Your generosity is without measure!
Dear Butter Maid Bakery,

We are extremely grateful for the package you sent! Your generosity is without measure!

The Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen of the Train, Advise, & Assist Command - South are incredibly thankful for your show of solidarity with those of us who continue to serve far from loved ones during the holiday season.

The Chaplains' office on Kandahar Airfield provides a "Free-X" where Soldiers can come and get what they need at any time. We have nearly 100 troops come through each day to procure basic hygiene items, snacks and home-made cookies. Your cookies are DELICIOUS!! One platoon of Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division was very excited to receive them!

In closing, I wish to reiterate how wonderful it is that you took time to show your support for our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen who are serving overseas! We are proud to serve great Americans, like you!

Jennifer J. Cooper, Major, Chaplain, TAAC-S Chaplain

Dear Butter Maid Bakery,
This is long overdue but thank you for the cookies we received around Christmas time. They were absolutely amazing. I don't even like sugar cookies and I couldn't stop eating them. I put them out for everybody and they didn't last long. Once again, thank you so much!

I wanted to take a minute to thank the Butter Maid Bakery for Operation Sweetest Appreciation. I am deployed to the Hemland province of Afghanistan with Marines from Beaufort, S.C. I received a box of your delicious treats, and my Marines and I are both thankful, and stuffed. We really appreciate the support you give us. Your support (and the energy received from eating numerous cookies) makes our time here pass by quickly. Thanks again!

I recently received a shipment of DELICIOUS and TASTY and SWEET and YUMMY cookies... but what was extra special was that a thoughtful someone donated additional cookies through "Operation: Sweetest Appreciation." What a wonderful thing to do! Not only did I greatly appreciate the thoughtfulness... but my Soldiers got to enjoy it too! So from Camp Stone, Herat, Afghanistan to a wonderful little cookie shop... a great big "THANK YOU!" is shouted your way!

For every person who donates a dozen cookies...THANK YOU for donating the tastiest cookies available. I'm deployed myself and I couldn't believe the first time my mom sent me cookies that I received an extra FREE dozen... meaning I could SHARE with my Soldiers!!!! It was AHHHHH-MAZING! I realized that if I appreciated these cookies so much, I had to pass on that appreciation. I've since purchased a couple cookie donations for a deployed Servicemember -and I knew that someone out there got a surprise with a tasty reminder of home.

We love these cookies in our house! My husband is from pennsylvania and one of the first things we do when we go home is stop at buttermaid bakery! These frosted cookies are some of my favorites, I always say I will keep savor them, but in this house they don't last more than a few days! Thank you for having a website ButterMaid Bakery!

I am pleased with the nut rolls. These are the closest I can get to my grandmother's walnut and poppyseed rolls. We are Hungarian and walnut and poppyseed rolls were among my favorite Hungarian pastries. Thanks.

My recent purchase of clothespin cookies was as always very delicious. They are always a hit - whether for wedding receptions, for family holiday gatherings, or as gifts. The only disappointment is that there is never leftovers to take home. Thank you for a quality product, and I will always remain a loyal customer!
