Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Nuts Theme Week.
This week includes variety of chocolate bars and confections that contain a range of "true" nuts (pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts) and tree nuts/"drupes" (almonds, cashews and pistachios).
Today's refrigerated Gluten Free Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was from Cappello's LLC (Denver, CO). The company offers a line of gluten free, almond flour-based baked goods that are very tasty.
There's nothing like the smell of freshly baked cookies. Aroma notes for these right-out-of-the-oven cookies included: aromatic, slightly nutty, chocolate chip cookies, facilitated by warm chocolate chips, and a touch of warm vanilla and coconut.
These cookies had a satisfying "buttery" crunchy texture accented with rich, melted chocolate chips.
I found these to be delicious, easy to prepare (slice and cook) cookies. They were good by themselves, and crumbled over a gelato sundae with amaretto, vanilla and mocha gelato flavors--topped with dark chocolate sauce, roasted almonds and a tiny sprinkle of sea salt. And they paired nicely with fresh fruit. (Cappello's has other recipe ideas on their website.)
