Oh Liz Lovely… I couldn’t be happier that I get to buy your products, lovingly crafted in verdant Vermont, at my local grocery store, here in Atlanta.
A good cookie is a little piece of heaven. It is the perfect accompaniment to a favorite book, the best ending to a home-cooked meal, an easy way to sign off on a sweet note. But cookies = flour + eggs + dairy and some other ingredients. What is a girl to do if she is cutting back on all three items from her diet? Bid goodbye to cookies, probably. Or make her own! An easier (and may I say, more delicious option) is to buy a packet of Liz Lovely’s. They are giant cookies (one cookie = diameter of my palm and yes, I have a medium-large palm), nicely priced ($3.99 for a 2-pack) and delicious, divine, sweet heaven.
Ginger is a favorite flavor at our home, so the first time I espied a 2-pack of Liz Lovely cookies, I got the Gluten Free Ginger Molasses one. Coated with granulated sugar, soft and crumbly in texture, little bites of crystallized ginger peeking through, subtly sweet due to the molasses… this is a sweet-sharp cookie with bright flavors. You can break a piece (or two) off the huge cookie, eat happily and sit back, contented. Or you could sneak back in and finish the whole cookie, bit by bit… I won’t judge you!
Last week, I bought a pack of two Chocolate Fudge Cookies. Ooh, this is a rich and decadent recipe. Each little bite is choc-a-full with nuggets of dark chocolate, silky in texture, assertive flavors… Know what, you won’t be able to eat the whole cookie in a single sitting. Try it, really.
Glancing through the Liz Lovely website, I saw SO MANY delicious-sounding cookies. Wish the company would bring them ALL to the Peach State. Please, Liz & Dan?
