PatsyPie makes some excellent gluten-free cookies. I’ve not had a chance to review them all yet; this is the first, and several other reviews will be coming soon.
I like their biscotti recipe. When combined with the chocolate chips that they use, it is not as good as it could be. Good but not great.
They are not too sweet – which is a big plus. They seem to use quality ingredients over all.
For one thing, I think the quality of the chocolate they use could be improved. That would make a big difference.
I find the combined texture of the crisp biscotti and the soft chocolate chips a bit odd. You might like the combination fine, but in my opinion, I don’t really like the combo so much. I could get used to it though if they used better quality chocolate.
This is by no means a bad product. I think you should try it if you see it at the store. But I think you should try some of their other products first – almond biscotti for example, or snappy ginger.

|Packaging||2||Convenient “standard” cookie packaging. Does not seal particularly well for freshness, but it does seem to keep the cookies pretty fresh some how.|

|Quality||2.5||-½ point for the chocolate chips.|
