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.

Have Your Own Soldier To Send To? See our Military Cookie Collection.

Free Shipping On $49+: Please note this item is not eligible toward the $49 value, the offer is valid on products shipping to the address on the order.

I orginally came to your site to see what goodies I could buy for myself. I saw your program to send cookies to our military overseas. My son just got home from Kawait. Knowing how homesick he was, I decided to have 4 dozen cookies sent out. My son is Army, so I had 2 doz. sent to Army, and my father was Navy, so I had 2 sent to Navy. I love this program, and will be donating more. Thank you!

Real cookies
First off I didn't pay for my cookies. They were given to us. Now, I work outside overseas as a mechanic with about 20 other soldiers. It's hot out here, and we are about 1 mile away from our barracks. Now the DEFAC/food hall is also a ways away, and the food is not bad. But the cookies we have here taste like cardboard compared to these. Man we were excited to see we got some real cookies and boy are they delicious. Next paycheck I'm sending some to my wife back home as a surprise.

Amazing cookies
Dear Gloria, Jim, Nick, Jeff and the Butter Maid family of bakers: I have just received some amazing cookies from your bakery - all the way out in Kabul, Afghanistan! I am not an American soldier, but a British Brigadier General working with US forces, and I wanted you to know that your cookies are now being sampled by an international audience. Your cookies are amazing!! A fantastic boost to morale as they not only taste delicious, but also as they remind us of the support that we have at home and across the world. Operation Sweetest Appreciation is a great idea, and it is certainly appreciated by all the soldiers that I work with over here. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to send your cookies to us.

Thank You!
Hello, We just wanted to say thank you for the cookies that you guys sent us down here in our deployed location. The cookies didn't even last an hour, as our troops ripped them apart within minutes. We are often forgotten by the rest of the world whom don't know what is really going on in the middle east aside from what they hear on the news and we live that everyday away from our friends and families. When we get a care package like yours it's like Christmas for some of us because we never know what is inside these packages. We would like to personally thank Jess, and Tammy as most of the boxes we received have had there name hand written on each card, so thank you ladies for taking the time out of your day to make this very kind gesture. I would also like to thank Gloria, Jim, Nick, and Jeff for making all this happen for us. Please keep Operation: sweetest appreciation going as I'm sure it will raise the spirits of those downrange as it has for us.

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!
