Katz Gluten Free Cookies: Sprinkle, Chocolate Rugelech & Raspberry Hamantaschen ( gluten free, GF/CF, nut free, kosher)

Posted on | May 2, 2009 | No Comments

More goodies from Katz Gluten Free! I actually kept these six to eight ounce containers of cookies in my freezer for a few weeks, so see  how well they would taste in comparison to the other Katz Gluten Free Cookies I have sampled. I am happy to report that after a few hours of thawing on my countertop, they tasted exactly like the fresh gluten free cookies. Not bad!
This is what I thought of each flavor:
Colored Sprinkle Cookies: These were the clear winner at my house! These gluten free cookies are heart shaped shortbread cookies with fun sprinkles decorating the top. They are just the right size for a child to hold and are delightfully light with a soft crunch. They boast a sweet vanilla flavor that anyone would enjoy. My kids are begging me for more! Rating: 4 1/2 stars
Ingredients: gluten free flour (corn, tapioca, brown rice, sorghum), sugar, palm oil, canola oil, fresh eggs, pure vanilla, xanthan gum, salt, colored sprinkles
Chocolate Rugelech: These cookies look like mini pinwheels with swirls of chocolate and coffee flavored filling with a hint of cinnamon. It is a nice idea, but the end result was less than fantastic. These cookies were brittle and easily fell apart in my hand. They were very crunchy and dry, and I couldn’t even dunk them into a beverage because they crumbled so easily. I am not sure if I got a bad batch, but this happened before and after freezing them. It’’s really too bad, because it is a great idea for a sweet snack. Rating: 1  1/2 stars
Ingredients: gluten free flour (potato, tapioca, white rice, brown rice, sorghum), sugar, canola oil, fresh eggs, orange juice, cocoa, dry yeast, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, coffee, cornstarch, pure vanilla.
Raspberry Hamantaschen: These cookies are the raspberry equivalent of the apricot version I reviewed. I must say, I liked these better than the apricot, and I don’t even like raspberries! Now, I must admit, I am not sure what hamantaschen is supposed to taste like, but I found the the thick vanilla shortbread surrounding the dollop of flavorful raspberry jam very tasty. The cookie had a slight crunch, but was still soft enough to be enjoyable. It wasn’t overly sweet to me and was overall a really tasty treat. Rating: 4 stars
Ingredients: gluten free flour ( corn, tapioca, brown rice, sugar, palm oil, canola oil, fresh eggs, pure vanilla, xanthan gum, salt and raspberry jam.
