It is no secret that we love cookies here in our house. Jon’s nose can detect cookies the minute they hit the oven and he is front & center begging for a cookie before they are done baking. It is all I can do most days to keep him away until they cool enough to take them off the pan. Some how he has the same talent with packaged cookies. It is like he has a radar or some sixth sense. Perhaps he is the Cookie Monster in disguise?
A few weeks back I was contacted to see if I would be interested in trying Minnie Beasley’s Gluten-Free Almond Lace Cookies. Well, of course I would be! I haven’t met very many cookies that I didn’t like. When the cookies arrived, I had just finished my lunch and was getting ready to dive into a bag of Starburst Jelly Beans. I opted for a Chocolate Almond Lace Cookie instead. Best.decision.ever. This cookie was straight from heaven! I couldn’t believe the taste and texture! I had to grab the bag and check to make sure they were indeed gluten-free. I love that I have had to do this more than once in the past few months – it only means that gluten-free products are getting better & better and that, my friends, is awesome for us all!
I didn’t think that there was any way that the Almond Lace Cookies could measure up to the Chocolate Almond Lace Cookies. There was no way, in my opinion, that something that didn’t have chocolate in it could even come close. Wrong, very wrong. While the Almond Lace Cookies aren’t chocolate, they have an amazing buttery, almond flavor. I couldn’t decide which cookie I liked better! You know what that means, right? I had to eat more to see if I could come to a decision. I never did come to that decision, but I did enjoy these cookies! In case you are wondering, I did share with Jon (who also loved them) and Lindsey (my gluten-free tasting buddy).
Minnie Beasley’s Gluten-Free Almond Lace cookies can be ordered online or purchased in Whole Foods stores that are located in Denver, Kansas City, Salt Lake & New Mexico. I sure hope that our Whole Foods here in Ohio starts to carry these soon!
