The Krampus and Kris Kringle cookie flavors have returned to Gideon’s Bakehouse in Disney Springs for the holiday season. These specialty cookies were available last year and proved to be customer favorites, so the bakery has brought them back by popular demand. The Krampus cookie features a chocolate cookie base with white chocolate, crunchy toffee, almonds, and dried cherries. It is inspired by the folklore legend Krampus, a horned beast who punishes naughty children at Christmas time.
This cookie perfectly balances sweet and salty flavors with a variety of textures from the toffee crunch to chewy dried fruit. It is priced at $6. The Kris Kringle cookie is a sugar cookie filled with crushed candy canes and white chocolate chips. It is drizzled with a peppermint glaze and sprinkled with crushed peppermint candies. This festive cookie captures all the flavors of the Christmas season for $6.
Both specialty cookies will be available throughout the holiday season, while supplies last. Gideon’s Bakehouse recommends visiting in the morning for the best availability. In addition to these limited-time flavors, Gideon’s Bakehouse offers their signature half-pound cookies daily like the Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Crunch, and Pistachio Toffee. Prices range from $5-6 per cookie. Customers are limited to purchasing 7 cookies per visit. The bakery also sells whole cakes, cake slices, and cookie bites. Seasonal flavors are introduced monthly.
Gideon’s Bakehouse opened at Disney Springs in 2020 and quickly became one of the most popular spots thanks to its oversized, artisanal cookies. Guests can expect a wait time on busy days. The best way to avoid long lines is to join the virtual queue via the smartphone app upon arrival at Disney Springs. This allows guests to explore other shops and restaurants while waiting for their turn. Walk-up lines are also accepted when the queue is low. With the return of these specialty holiday cookies, Gideon’s Bakehouse is sure to draw crowds this season. Cookie lovers visiting Disney World should be sure to carve out time to stop by the bakery for these delicious limited-edition treats before they sell out.
