Shabtai Bakery, otherwise known as Cinderella Sweets, sent me these meltaway gluten free cookies to review. They arrived fresh baked in a 12 ounce box, ready to eat. The packaging described them as “streussel crumbs, artfully crafted into scrumptious, finger friendly morsels.”
These Meltaway cookies are square shaped shortbread-like cookies encrusted with almonds, pecans and chocolate chips. I found that they were very crisp and crumbly with no “melting” going on in my mouth, at all. The flavor of chocolate and almond was pleasant, but the coarse texture really didn’t appeal to me. They would be great with a cup of steamy hot chocolate or coffee, though. These gluten free cookies would actually make a tasty pie crust (in place of a graham cracker crust) if they were crushed.
The cookies look really yummy, but I just didn’t care for them with my simple glass of milk. I would suggest having these with a hot beverage for maximum flavor and enjoyment.
Pros: chunky nuts and chocolate, looks great
Cons: too crumbly and crisp, the “meltaway” name is a bit deceptive
