Yes, I’m actually somewhat dedicating this post to Cookie.Works’s grand opening in Northhampton. Christina and I enjoy their goodies a wee bit too much.
Snack at the Amherst Farmers’ Market, Amherst, MA:
More ginger, less lemon juice would have been preferable.
Both delicious, but I liked the sharper, nuttier taste of the Maggie’s slightly better.
Oh, wow. These are strong.
Surprisingly very delicious! The bread was airy and doughy, and the pesto cheese marriage was perfectly balanced.
Working at Thirsty Mind, South Hadley, MA:
The biscotti was flavourful but not crunchy enough for me. I was a bit disappointed with the latte; the foam wasn’t velvety. However, the coffee was strong and the amount of foam generous so that was good. I also enjoyed the London Fog, but neither Jeannette nor I could taste the vanilla flavouring so it was really just earl grey tea with foam.
Dessert at Cookie.Works — Thornes Marketplace, Northhampton, MA:
Fantastic! I have yet to taste a cookie I didn’t enjoy. My favourite cookie flavour so far seems to be either the orange nutella or death by chocolate, but I also enjoyed the oatmeal black currant and caramel apple. Both chocolates had toasted oats in it or something of the sort, because they were also crunchy. Flavours were well-balanced and none of the cookies were overly sweet (hurrah!), both of which make this bakery a winner in my book. The cookies are on the crunchy side though, so perhaps not for the chewy lovers.
Thanks for the cupcake, Christina! 🙂
So amazing 😍! Christina and I both enjoyed the frosting, which definitely tasted like it was made from real strawberries, so that’s a shock. I normally hate frosting. The gluten-free cake itself was dense but moist, and neither of us could quite figure out the flavour. It sort of had apple undertones to me, but did not taste like strawberries. I think the strawberry flavour came completely from the frosting.
