Did you hear that? Cookies. AND Wine! What a great combination, right?! I recently discovered Cookies & Corks and fell instantly in love. They have created all natural, gourmet sweet and savory cookies that pair perfectly with wine. I’m definitely a fan of sweets and wine, but a savory cookie? I wasn’t too sure about it, but I’m glad I gave them a shot because they ROCK!
If you try these cookies, you find ingredients that youâ€™d expect in cookies â€“ like dark chocolate, lemon and espresso. The reason is because these flavors can enhance your favorite wines. And savory flavors also enhance wine – so they decided to create savory cookies, too – cookies with thyme, sage, white cheddar and sea salt.
Cookies & Corks offers three different pairing boxes full of cookies that can be drank with red, white, or sparkling wines. Some of the cookies can be drank with a variety of wines, too.
The Red Wine Pairing Box contains fifteen bite-sized cookies: five Espresso Chocolate Peanut Butter, five White Cheddar Rosemary, and five Shortbread. Shortbread tops my list of favorites.
The Sparkling Wine Pairing Box contains fifteen bite-sized cookies: five Zesty Lemon, five Parmesan Thyme, and five Sea Salt Chocolate Oatmeal. Let me just say that the Zesty Lemon cookies are out of this world!
The White Wine Pairing Box contains fifteen bite-sized cookies: five Ginger Molasses, five Peanut Butter Chocolate, and five Apricot Sage. The Apricot Sage cookies had my mouth watering for more!
Even if you don’t like wine, these cookies are just as yummy by themselves or with your favorite beverage.
