My friend Ian turned me onto Musso’s cookies, which are naturally gluten free, and quite addictive! Found at Zupan’s in Portland, these cookies are made of almond paste, sugar, egg whites and leavening. That’s it! The egg whites give them a light, crunchy texture, and the almond flavor comes through really fragrantly.
I’ve not been to Italy, but can imagine eating a plateful of these cookies along with a strong espresso while sitting in a village cafe in the Italian countryside.
As gluten free cookies go, I strongly recommend them on taste, texture and at 3-4 bucks for a big box, pretty cheap too!
