Review: Trader Joe's - Lattemiele Cookies

Trader Joe's Lattemiele Cookies are described as "slightly sweet milk & honey" cookies.

A 14.11-oz package contains 4 separately wrapped sets of cookies and cost me $2.49.

These are made in Italy. Lattemiele literally translates to milkhoney (latte being milk and miele being honey). I really like that they come in 4 packets so they don't go stale too quickly once you open the bag.

The Lattemiele reminds me of petite beurre butter biscuits only not as buttery. There's a similar crispy, airy texture and light sweetness. But where the butter biscuit has a strong butter flavor, the Lattemiele has a honeyed sweetness. It's a distinct flavor that's unlike any major brand cookie made here in the U.S. While there's a similar texture, the Lattemiele have an almost powdery finish to them; like they're falling apart in your mouth.

The package recommends dunking these in tea or coffee. The pocketed crumb absorbs the warm liquid readily. Just dunk quickly or it might disintegrate into your drink.

Overall, Trader Joe's Lattemiele Cookies are really nice. Beside being reminiscent of butter biscuits, they also remind me of Nilla wafers but with honey instead of vanilla. It's a really enjoyable but subtle flavor that makes for a light dessert or snack.
