Are you A Cookie Lover? Try Something new This Season!

If you are a big fan of Dessert Lady branded cookies, you probably have not tried to many other exotic desserts and confections.  But you should definitely think about it.  Things like biscotti, shortbread, macarons, and other sweet treats might never replace your go-to snack, but you might just find your tastes are more broad than you thought!

SHORTBREAD

Shortbread is a type of biscuit typically consisting of one part white sugar to two parts butter to three parts flour.  These biscuits are dry and brittle but sweet and light too.  Dessert Lady shortbreads include:

BRITTLE

Brittle is a type of confection basically consisting of hard sugar candy embedded with nuts.  It is a sweet made in many parts of the world with variations from Greece, France, Georgia, India, Bangladesh, as well as Asia and the Middle East. Peanut brittle is the most common but you can also find them in pistachio, almond, or pecan.

MACARONS

The macaron is a traditional sweet meringue-filled French confection. It is typically made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, [ground] almond powder and coloring (food coloring or other food-sourced color).  The macaron is like a little cookie sandwich with ganache, buttercream, or jam between the two outer pieces.  Of course, they can come in many flavors, including:

  • Chocolate
  • Orange Cassis
  • Raspberry Lemon Twist
  • Citrus Champagne
  • Pistachio

TRUFFLES

A chocolate truffle is a type of bon-bon, a chocolate French confectionery made with chocolate ganache coated in chocolate or cocoa powder or chopped, toasted nuts (hazelnuts, coconut, and almond). Typically they are spherical or conical in shape.
