Dnipro Butter Cookies History

One day returning from a trip from Kyiv Oleksandra Leonova went into the compartment of Dnipropetrovsk branded train, ordered tea and waited looking at the well-known curtains with Dnipro logo.

"How good would be if they now bring the cookies with the same name "Dnipro" to tea", - she thought.

And this thought did not leave her.

Dnipro Butter Cookies is a sweet symbol of Dnipro since 1967On returning to Dnipro she visited the confectionery workshop and here the recipe was selected. Next she drew the pictures for the cookies at home sitting in her garden and her daughter was painting nearby. The basis of the design of Dnipro Butter Cookies packaging was a ship from a child's drawing.

But the drawing for the cookies themself was especially successful. Here the ornament in the form of sharp waves on perimeter of cookies is framed by the inscription "Dnipro". It was decided to enlarge the size of cookies for greater impression.

It was decided that the packaging should be colorful and depicts Dnieper river in Dnipro city. Views of Dnieper river were made by a photographer comming from Kyiv and the final version of the main image of the packaging were chosen together. The first box of Dnipro Butter Cookies was with the image of Kherson bridge in Dnipro and a sailboat.

Oleksandra Leonova was awarded diplomas, prizes including Order of Red Banner of Labor.

She was incredibly happy! Dnipro Butter Cookies were really a success!
