Apple Pie Cookies at Xa Sweet & Savory Cafe - Orange
And she's right! They deserve more than just the few words I dedicated on my OC Weekly review of Xa. We have, in fact, returned almost weekly to feed her apple pie cookie addiction, buying dozens at a time. In some cases, we've waited for them to cool down on the baking racks so that Shawn can seal them up in their individual plastic satchels. In so doing, we are lucky to have also tried them while they were still warm and slightly gooey from the oven.
For Mother's Day she packaged them up in gift boxes tied up with colorful ribbons.
So far, everyone my cookie preacher has blessed with these cookies agrees that they don't just uncannily taste like real apple pie, with the crystally crunch of cinnamon sugar and real bits of apple embedded inside each perfectly formed disc, they are also one of the best cookies they've ever eaten. These cookies are worthy of a whole post here, she said. And she's going to write it.
She has even thought of the perfect blog nom de plume for herself: since mine is elmomonster, hers, she says, will be cookiemonster, in honor of these cookies.
So without further ado, here is cookiemonster's piece on Xa's apple pie cookies!
Quite the wordsmith isn't she?
