But I stuck to trying the human treats this time.
The cookies come in cute bags of six (not a bad gift, as they're nicely packaged!) and the biscotti come in bags of three.
I tried two flavors from their normal cookie line and two flavors from their vegan cookie line.
The top two cookies on the plate (sugar and chocolate chip) are vegan, the bottom two (oatmeal raisin sunflower seed and peanut butter chocolate chip) are not vegan. But even the non-vegan cookies are made of organic ingredients like organic malted barley flour and organic cage-free eggs.
These cookies make an excellent accompaniment for a chilly glass of milk and, with their all natural ingredients, are a treat you can feel good about.
I was less impressed with the vegan sugar cookies, because I like cookies with a lot of different flavors. My little sister really enjoyed them, though, as they are quite good for sugar cookies. If you like a simple, sweet cookies, these sugar cookies are a good bet.
The Oatmeal Raisin Sunflower Seed cookies improved upon the already delicious oatmeal raisin cookie (one of my favorite types of cookies for the last seven or so years now) by adding salty, crunchy sunflower seeds. The addition of the seeds, paired with the plump raisins and perfectly sweet (not too sweet, but sweet enough) base made for a delicious, more gourmet oatmeal raisin cookie.
I tested these in the freezer and they hold up quite well if frozen right after purchase (you can order them online or find them at several locations across the South Shore and Boston) and defrosted in the microwave.
Even if you're not de-freezing them, a few seconds in the microwave are great for these cookies - it gives them that great fresh-out-of-the-oven warmth and brings out the flavors even more!
What's your favorite type of cookie?
Do you like nuts in your chocolate chip cookies? I do!
Do you microwave (to warm) baked goods before eating?
