If there was one thing I grew to love when I worked at the coffee shop, it was biscotti. Nothing can top the taste of a crisp, crunchy cookie dunked in something like coffee or tea or even hot chocolate. Absolutely…delish.

So, when my roommate and I were out at our new grocery store (the one that carries the My Dad’s Cookies products), we had a plan to pick up the lemon cookies…

…but they still didn’t have any in stock. As the lemon cookies were the ones that the roomie wanted to try…I told her to pick whatever she was interested in trying for dessert. She wasted no time in choosing the My Dad’s Cookies Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Biscotti.

Sweet.

So, tonight we opened them up for dessert. And to make it official, I brewed up a bit of decaf coffee for dipping purposes. Yeah…this was going to be good.

Settling in with an episode of Chopped, we ate our dinner (gluten-free pasta with homemade marinara and gluten-free focaccia bread, in case you were wondering!) and then I went to clean up a little and grab dessert.  Nothing is easier than opening the little plastic container of My Dad’s Cookies Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Biscotti.  I poured two cups of coffee…and then grabbed a serving of the cookies.

Dessert was served.

My roommate tucked in first.  I asked what she thought and she said, “It’s yummy!”  That’s always a good sign.  That means she really does like it and isn’t just trying to be polite.  So, that was a positive note to start on!  I settled in and picked up one of the cookies, giving it a dunk into my freshly brewed coffee…and took a bite.

These…are not traditional type biscotti.  They are smaller than normal biscotti, and while crisp, they get really soft immediately upon dipping…so don’t let it linger too long.  These are more chopped up chocolate chip cookies than chocolate chip biscotti…but I won’t complain.  The flavor is divine.  The overall vanilla flavor with the sweet chocolate chips scattered…oh…so good.  They had a nice crunch to them when they weren’t dipped in the coffee, but got quite soft when they hit the liquid.  The flavor profile is amazing, especially if you love chocolate chip cookies…and I do.

As far as ingredients go, these aren’t too bad.  The My Dad’s Cookie Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Biscotti are made from a gluten-free flour blend (brown rice, potato starch, tapioca flour, and xanthan gum), sugar, organic palm oil, egg, chocolate chips, chocolate liquor, brown sugar, natural vanilla extract, agave, cream of tartar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

As far as the nutrition information goes, this is rather good.  A serving of the My Dad’s Cookies Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Biscotti is 4 of the cookies.  This serving provides 150 calories and 7 grams of fat.  In addition, they serve up 15 mg cholesterol, 40 mg sodium, and 12 grams of sugar.  Finally, you will be consuming 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of protein.  Not filling…but delicious.

I have become a big fan of the My Dad’s Cookies brand.  Everything I have tried has been amazing and delicious.  You’d never guess these were gluten-free.  Not one bit.  Amazing and delicious…another fantastic treat.

Get yourself some of this biscotti and get to dipping.  You will also fall in love.
