Today's Review: Merba Apple Pie Cookies

Apple pie cookies. All I had to do was read the packet, and straight in the basket they went. Apple pie and cookies could well be the best dessert combination after cheesecake and brownies, and here they were all wrapped up for me. Well, these cookies are not quite the all American, leave on your windowsill to cool, inviting all kinds of miscreants to swipe it apple pie, but are instead based on "the famous apple strudel recipe". Oh well, pie, strudel, there's not much in it really. 

So here they are. certainly strudel shaped, and they are definitely very apple pie like. They're loaded with chunks of apple, raisins and a pinch of cinnamon, and the whole thing certainly does taste like an apple pie all mixed up with cookie dough, it's very nice. There is a problem though, in that the textures of both cookie and pastry appear to have been preserved, so it seems like a constant struggle between chewy and crumbly, and it all mixes up to make the overall texture a bit odd. Still, they taste like apple pie cookies, and they're certainly nice, perhaps it just wasn't a completely perfect combination after all.

My rating: 4/5


  1. Oh wow I think I actually NEED these cookies. Where did you find them?

    1. I should've said really. I found them in Home Bargains, for only 79p too!
