I need to start out by letting you know that what I share with you in this review may just change your life! The subject at hand is cookies. Yes, cookies. Those delectable little (or large) morsels of “yum.” When it comes to gluten-free cookies, we celiacs tend to compromise and like our newfound cookies. The love affair we once had is shoved to the side in denial. The longing hidden behind in search for the taste we once could have.
Well, look no further, cookies fans. I found the company, the team, the gluten-free cookies: Liz Lovely! Yes, this is her name—the name of the creator and the name of my new treasured find, tucked away in the green mountains of Waitsfield, Vermont.
Liz Lovely carries an array of 1-pack cookies (2 per pack) weighing in at a dense and whopping 6.3 oz, various apricot, mango and ginger specialty items, and a beautiful gift box option of any assortment your heart desires.
When I bit into and gobbled up my first GF chocolate fudge cookie—well, I simply looked at my husband and noticed his large fudge cookie was gone, too. We both grinned in delight and agreed this was the moistest and most “true-to-chocolate” cookie we’d had in years.
I proceeded to look in the box and open another flavor, GF chocolate chip. Well, folks, this cookies is the epitome of a true chocolate chip cookie, with a dough we all know—yes, Tollhouse cookie dough. It took me back to the pleasure moments of eating that dough out of the mixing bowl as a child. Liz told me the secret is the way she bakes it.
With Liz’s love of sugar and her hubby Dan’s love of Liz, they have created a company that completely aligns with their basic beliefs. Their company bakes completely from scratch—no filler, flavoring, or shortcuts, with only socially responsible sources for their products and, as Liz says, “We accept nothing less than perfection.”
The future holds some exciting news for Liz Lovely’s: a factory tour, more cookies, and a print catalog. She shared the fact her hubby’s all into that King Arthur. In fact, it was Dan who suggested Liz delve into the GF industry after frequent calls about her original Liz Lovely (then non-GF) requesting GF cookies. She wasn’t into the idea until she found her secret flour blend. Though her facility is not a dedicated GF facility, she assured me she runs strict standards and that her GF is tested at less than 5 ppm.
Go to www.lizlovely.com and order some GF treats. I even suggest sending a box or two to your friends and family. I did, and they were thrilled!
By the way, these cookies last a full year in the freezer. It you’re not satisfied, just let King Arthur know, and he’ll take good care of you. I’m sure you will be quite satisfied, though. Happy Eating!
