When Jen Misura, owner of Bake in Lethbridge asked if I’d like to sample some gluten-free versions of their cookies, I jumped at the chance. Yes, yes, yes please!
In a city full of cupcake bakeries, Bake has set itself apart by featuring an array of artisan cookies and pastries such as French Macarons, Sicilian Cannoli, Buttercream Sugar Cookies and much more.
Everything is baked to order, never frozen, and customized orders are accepted. Plus, orders over $24 include free delivery.
I received a sample pack featuring:
- Maple Pecan Melts
- Strawberry Buttercream Sugar Cookies
- Salted Mocha Caramel Macarons
- Strawberry-Chili Macarons
The Maple Pecan Melts were first up. This sweet and salty cookie is packed with crunchy nuts and sweet buttery, maple flavour. It just might be the best cookie I’ve ever tasted. Actually, I’m positive it’s the best cookie I’ve ever eaten. Final answer.
Next up: Macarons! I’ve been dying to try this traditional French confectionary for ages, and I’ve never been able to find them for sale in Lethbridge. Plus I’m too intimidated to attempt a recipe.
These melt in your mouth delights are filled with buttercream or jam and sandwiched between two sweet almond meringue cookies. Oooh la-la! Je t’aime, Macarons!
And lastly, the finale to my sweet feast: Strawberry Buttercream Sugar Cookies. A soft, delicate cookie decorated in ribbons of strawberry buttercream. Why are these so good.
I could’ve (and probably would’ve) eaten 40 in one sitting.
You need all of these in your belly immediately.
