I stopped by Whole Foods yesterday and picked up two different brands of gluten free and dairy free cookies. I was in a cookie mood, and it’s always good to have some cookies in the cabinet for emergencies.
Cherrybrook Kitchen’s mini chocolate chip cookies are gluten and dairy free. I wasn’t to sure about them at first. The taste of the cookie was good, but they were hard as a rock! I like a crunchy cookie, but they were too hard. The back of the box suggests throwing them in the microwave, so I popped them in for about 10 seconds, and that really softened them up. So if you ever get these, I suggest heating them up.
The sugar cookies had a great flavor and crunchy texture. These cookies reminded me of Sandies Pecan Shortbread cookies. Garbanzo bean flour is one of the ingredients, so they do leave a beanie aftertaste. I am kind of used to the beanie taste, but if you do not like that, I wouldn’t recommend these.
I have to say though, homemade cookies beat store bought cookies any day!
