HOW IT WORKS
Altamont cookies are baked in the kitchen of The Synagogue | Congregation B'nai Emunah each Tuesday evening. The process is pure and simple, using fine, natural ingredients and no artificial components or preservatives. Imagine a rich and luscious version of the cookies you bake at home.
The cookies are packaged on Wednesday morning and delivered by a cadre of volunteers beginning at noon. If you become an Altamont retailer, expect your delivery early in the afternoon.
Our cookies are sold for $18 a dozen to retailers who place a standing order. The minimum take-away is a dozen cookies and there is no maximum. We love working with people who will commit to weekly delivery, but we will try to accomodate occasional sales, as well.
Cookies will come to you packaged however you prefer. If you decide to resell the cookies individually, please allow us to pack them for you in our simple, sophisticated glassine bags with an Altamont label. We'll also provide a display basket, refilled each week with fresh cookies. Recommended retail price for re-sellers: $2 per cookie. The retail price at the Synagogue is $2, and that seems right to us, but many sell them at a higher figure.
If you're a restaurant and want to add them to your dessert menu, we'll deliver them in a plain box, packed to prevent breakage. Same deal if you plan to use them at a party or lay them out in an office kitchen as a treat for employees. Please feel free to talk to us about twice-weekly delivery.
We'll also be glad to pack our cookies as a gift on a platter suitable for presentation. When we do it this way, the cookies are $30 for a baker's dozen.
In a spirit of charitable giving, some retailers purchase our cookies at the regular price, sell them for $2.00, and turn the profit directly back to the bakery. We're very grateful for that generosity, and it allows us to be still more helpful to Mental Health Association residents.
To place your order, please call the Synagogue at 918.583.7121. Our Project Administrator is Betty Lehman, and she would be glad to set up your delivery.
Each of our bakers has a food handler's license, and we bake out of a DHS-inspected and kosher-supervised kitchen. Our cookies stay miraculously fresh in their glassine envelopes for about a week. Their shelf life is probably a little less when they are delivered unwrapped or placed on presentation trays for gift-giving. However, they are likely to be eaten long before they go stale. Try it yourself. Unwrap a cookie and leave it out for a week without eating it. It's impossible.
