Shabtai Gourmet Meltaway Cookie
reviewed by Heather Holland
Critic Overall Rank:
Crunchy and small, these adorable cookies would be a perfect compliment to coffee or tea. I'd call it an adult cookie just because of the pieces of pecan and they just had a very sophisticated taste. Shabtai Gourmet's Meltaway Cookies are gluten, dairy, soy, lactose, corn, and casein free. So, what's it made of then? The answer is: potato starch, mostly. Considering all it doesn't have, the cookie was pretty good. It had the perfect amount of sweetness and the pecans added a nice little crunch. Unfortunately though, the calorie count is kind of on the high side (at 140 per oz). Oh, and don't let the name "Meltaway" deceive you. This is a very crunchy cookie and there is little melting involved--at least with my experience. Overall, I'd say its worth trying.
