Liz Lovely - She Ain't Kiddin Around!

I posted last month about how I heard about Liz Lovely cookies from Marlow and that they were having a special sale for Celiac Awareness month. Well I ordered up a slew of cookies to celebrate my celiac awesomeness. Seriously, I ordered the sampler AND two packs of the mini cookies.

I was so excited when they came and dug into the German Chocolate Cake cookie right away. After the first bite I just stopped, closed my eyes, and savored the taste. It was so soft and moist, just like "real cake". The chocolate and coconut were divine. Needless to say, that 2-cookie pack didn't last long.

The sampler also included Chocolate Chip cookies, Chocolate Fudge cookies (drool), Peanut Butter cookies, Ginger Molasses cookies, and Snickerdoodles. They were all so tasty, but that Snickerdoodle?! SHUT UP! All of these cookies are hefty in the calorie department, so I was cutting each cookie into quarters. (Half a cookie is about 200 calories...yikes, but SO worth it!) With that snickerdoodle, I ate the whole entire cookie in one sitting. It was sooo good I couldn't stop! Nice work, Liz!

The mini cookies were ok. Crunchy like a store bought cookie, but more rich. I ordered the mint chocolate chip and the pecan sandies. I thought the pecan sandies had a dense, buttery flavor while another taste tester thought they tasted a little too doughy. Either way they weren't as delicious as the giant soft cookies. I actually put the little cookies in the freezer because I was going into cookie overload. I think I might grind them up and make them into pie crust. I can see a nice pudding pie sitting in the mint chocolate chip cookie shell and maybe an apple pie for the pecan sandies. Yum!

I see that the mini cookies aren't on the site anymore, so I'm not sure if they were discontinued or taking a little break. I did see that chocolate covered apricots, mangoes, and ginger have been added to the Liz Lovely gluten free selections. MmmMmMm....I love chocolate covered fruit, but that's a whole other post!

Seriously you guys, those soft cookies are to die for! I loved both the German Chocolate Cake and Chocolate Fudge, but that Snickerdoodle literally stopped me in my tracks!

Marlow, you're my hero for introducing them to me!!! :)
