Sorella vanilla biscottines gluten free biscotti

Another day, another cookie . . . isn’t cookie & biscotti month great? There are so many sweets and so little time!

I just had to highlight my new favorite product line again, this time focusing on the vanilla flavor biscottines, or smaller sized biscotti. These cookies arrive in a brown 6 ounce bag with cheerful yellow and blue labeling. Each bag contains aproximately 15 cookies.

Please read my review on the chocolate chip flavor HERE for more information regarding the background of this company and how Phyllis, the owner and baker, came up with the name and the history behind these divine creations. Also, please take note of their fanatastic shipping- the packages of biscottines are carefully packaged by hand in custom ordered boxes, and the shipping speed is incredible. I recieved my box of cookies in two days!

I truly love the vanilla flavor. In reality, it tastes just like the chocolate chip biscottines, minus the chocolate chips. I found the texture to be smoother though, missing the larger nooks and crannies of the chocolate chip flavor. Sorella Bakery’s mini biscotti are crunchy, but not hard, and melt in your mouth. They are a touch crumbly when bitten, but are not gritty or coarse. I also found that they are airy and light, verses their dense and heavy counterparts.These are definately characteristic of true Italian biscotti, not the hard American version. To be honest, I do not even like traditional American biscotti, but I love them from Sorella Bakery.

The vanilla flavor is simple, light and not too overpowering. This flavor would pair particularly well with a strong flavored drink or food assortment, and taste good partially dipped in a dark chocolate. This is a versatile biscotti flavor ia appropriate for any occasion, meal, or dessert. My gluten consuming family helped polish off this bag in a matter of hours. They tend to be very picky with gluten free food, but this flavor was definately a winner. It truly does not taste gluten free!

Pros: light texture, crunchy but not hard, balanced vanilla flavor, hand made with natural ingredients

Cons: Are there any?

Rating: 5 stars

    Hi Karen,

    I love your reviews and seem to stumble across them all the time. We do a ton of reviews (mostly myself and a few other contributors such as Bittersweet) for I wanted to find out if I could reprint your review with links and credits at top for the biscottines? I haven’t had a chance to trial these yet! So many cookies… Anywho, whether or not, thanks for the great reviews!!! I can be reached at alisa@ the website above.
