Tonight I got a special delivery. A few boxes of cookies from Schar!
The chocolate chip cookies are like a shortbread kind of cookie versus a soft cookie. They taste similar to the gluten-free chocolate chip Girl Scout Cookies (but the Schar versions are more widely available — nationally and all year long– and they arrived more intact). You may recall in my Girl Scout Cookie review, I compared the shortbread chocolate chip cookies to Famous Amos (a shortbread cookie which contains gluten).
As far as I am concerned, the Honeygrams are the closest thing I have had to a gluten-free “graham”-style cracker. I tried them plain and as a S’more. I thought they were great!
Emma, my 15-year-old gluten-free daughter, has NEVER HAD A S’MORE IN HER LIFE. But this afternoon she did! She said “That’s pretty good. I can see why people might like these.” Then she finished the S’more off and asked that I have some on hand for bonfire season.
My daughter who doesn’t eat gluten free (but loves a sweet treat) liked the Honeygrams the best, but thought the chocolate chip cookies were a bit dry.
I think both cookies could also make a good crust for a cheesecake as well.
In the meantime, Schar is doing a contest where you could win a trip to Italy and the last day to sign up is Wednesday, April 30! Click here to take part.
