Enjoy Life soft baked Snickerdoodle Cookies

One word: AMAZING!

Following major disappointment by the Raweo cookie yesterday, I didn't have high expectations for this snickerdoodle cookie.  After a very short run around Wrigley Field last night, I broke into this box of cookies on my counter.

The cookies come in a little tray, similar to the Samoa Girl Scout Cookies (I think they call them carmel delights now).  In fact, a co-worker was walking buy and exclaimed "Ohh! Girl Scout Cookies!" to which I replied they were gluten-free cookies so she would walk away and I could devour every last bite. 

There are 12 cookies in each box and they aren't very large.  However, from the moment I picked up the cookie to the very last crumb, the texture, sweetness levels and flavors were balanced just right.  The cookies are soft and chewy just like a fresh baked gluten cookie. The slightly cinnamon flavor mixed with the sweetness of dates, apple and pear juice and brown sugars create a delightful taste. 

I have to confess that between 9pm last night and 11am this morning, I have already eaten 6 cookies! Guess I'll have to add a couple extra laps around Wrigley Field to my run next time.

These cookies get a rating of 9.5 / 10.  If it were peanut butter chocolate chip, I'd give it a perfect ten.  But knowing that Enjoy Life promies to not use the top 8 allergins, I know we'll never get a peanut butter cookie.  I will definitely try the chocolate chip, double chocolate, happy apple, lively lemon and no-oat "oatmeal" varieties.
