Food reviews on Pamela's cookies and Fabulous Recipe !

Back in March I gave a mixed review to Pamela's Products Dark Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Cookies. I had mentioned that I may try out the other cookies in the line. So, I tried out the CHUNKY CHOCOLATE CHIP and the LEMON SHORTBREAD.

THE CHUNKY CHOCOLATE CHIP:


The Review:
I had my glass of milk ready. I was prepared to try and mask the taste and to try basically drown out the taste of the cookie . Don't I sound like a skeptic? Well, I was pleasantly surprised by my first bite! I did end up dipping my cookie in the milk because I really like the cookie-dunk technique. I had a hard time sticking to the recommended serving size of one cookie but I did because I had another cookie to review!

By the way...there is no dairy in the cookies itself, unless you decide to dunk the cookie in milk like I did.

The Verdict:



The Stats:
Serving Size: One cookie
Calories: 120
Total Fat: 6 grams
Total Carbs: 14 grams
Protein 1gram

THE LEMON SHORTBREAD:
The Review:
I love lemon. I love anything lemon. I had high expectations for this cookie. In my days prior to my diagnosis, I would get lemon pies, lemon donuts and well...lemon anything. Now that I have to be careful with dressings, I sprinkle lemon juice on my salad. I was not too worried about the flavor of these cookies, since I had already sampled the goodness of the chocolate chip ones.

I decided to ditch the milk. I wanted to try these with out the dairy taste in my mouth. I wanted to taste the wonderful lemon. I really loved the lemon shortbread cookies. I found them to be perfectly tart and divine! They are great on their own or they would perfectly accompany a cup of tea!
The Verdict:

Serving Size: 1 cookie

!!!!!!THE RECIPE!!!!!

This recipe is super casual. You only need enough to make as much as you need. I only made one so I didn't make much. It is so yummy and perfect for spring and summer!

Ingredients:
-Chocolate Pudding (you don't need to make from scratch, you can use a pudding snack pack!)
-Strawberries (washed & sliced)
- Gluten Free Lemon Shortbread Cookie
-Whipped Cream

Directions:
Fill the glass about 1/4 full with pudding. Then take the cookie and cut it in pieces. Place it in the pudding. Take the strawberries and cover glass in strawberry goodness!. I loaded mine up. Then garnish the top with whipped cream. The lemon and strawberries make this so tasty and chocolate is always delicious!

That looks so good. I should make that for the company I am having this weekend bet they would eat it up.

Oh, no! Now I need a cookie. I'm not sure if I can find Pamela's products here, but I'll definitely keep an eye out now that I've read a rave review!

Gina,

I wasn't that big on the double chocolate one but the other two were great! I hope that you can find them there! Good luck :)

I went over to a gluten-free friend's house last night for dinner and guess what he had for dessert? Pamela's cookies, that's what! We had the gingerbread kind. Pretty good! He served it with Bliss coconut sorbet, which was delicious. I really want to try the lemon shortbread now.
