Quest for the Double Lark Cookie
We're so excited to be working with Lark Fine Foods to create the world's first double Lark cookie –Pistachio Sablé with Dried Cherries! Lark's Group Executive Chef Justin Perdue created four cookie flavor profiles and recently ventured down to Lark Fine Foods' headquarters in Essex, MA for a taste test. After ample taste testing and help from you, we're pleased to share the winner and top four cookie flavors with you!
Winner: Pistachio Sablé with Dried Cherries
A traditional French sugar cookie flavored with all-natural pistachio nuts and dried cherries and rolled in vanilla sugar before baking. It is tender, sweet and salty and as crumbly as the sand-castle walls of childhood. The vanilla sugar edges caramelize ever so slightly while baking to create a crisp edge. The Lark Pistachio Sable is a classy dessert offering; great with a cup of coffee or tea after dinner or even for Sunday brunch.
Gingerbread-Lemon Checkerboard Cookie
The perfect blend of warm spices from gingerbread and bright citrus from lemon layered and sliced into a beautiful checkerboard style cookie. The dark molasses in the gingerbread makes for a moist cookie while the zest from the lemon gives it a light finish.
Hazelnut-Cocoa Linzer Cookie with Blackberry-Mint Jam
A hazelnut and chocolate cookie and an all-natural vanilla cookie joined together by fresh blackberry mint jam. The hazelnuts are toasted before they are blended with dark cocoa powder. The richness of the cookies are offset by the sweet berry jam and fresh mint.
Lemongrass Shortbread with Grapefruit Glaze
Fresh lemongrass is infused into to a traditional one part sugar, two part butter, 3 part flour shortbread base to create a tender cookie with a smooth, warm citrus flavor. The cookie is topped with a light glaze made from freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and zest. This is a perfect summer indulgence.
