Deservedly given the nickname, 'The Candy Queen' as a child I think that means I'm officially qualified to know if a sweet is really 'sweet' or not. Today I discovered my favorite cookie...in fact three of my favorite cookies and they are so sa-weet! I ordered some cookies from Sweet Cheeks Bakery a few days ago and today they arrived at my door via Priority Mail. Although I could easily NOT have shared these with the kids, I did.
I served them up on my tea cart in the dining room with some of my Masons Vista red tranferware pieces.
Sarah at Sweet Cheeks Bakery seals her cookies in airtight packaging so they arrive super fresh. This is my first time ordering baked goods online...I am so impressed. These are truly some of the best cookies I've had.
My favorite was called Lemon Limerific...a delicate, buttery shortbread cookie iced with a tangy sweet lemon lime glaze infused with sugar. I never thought I'd discover my favorite cookie in my 40's but these are it!
These are great for everyday eating, a pretty ladies tea and of course as a Mothers Day Treat (hint to Shawn...Nancy wants more Lemon Limerific cookies).
We all agreed that these Orange You Glad It's Double Chocolate Cookies are some of the best chocolate cookies we've ever had. Sarah describes them as "a perfectly chewy chocolate-orange cookie with a mixture of milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips and pecans rolled in orange zest infused sugar and baked to perfection", and I could not agree more. I love anything chocolate but the addition of double chocolate and the citrus orange is a winning combination in my book. Can you see the bits of orange zest in this? Yummy for my tummy...and yours!
Overall this one got the vote for favorite amongst my 6 kiddos...Chewy Oatmeal Cranberry with White Chocolate and Honey. That is exactly what they are and I'm not kidding when I say they taste as good as they sound...and look. Gobs of white chocolate, chewy cranberries (almonds too if you like) and classic oatmeal. Heaven for our mouth's!
I had a cup of tea with my cookies.
