If you've been putting off that trip to Brussels, Paris or Berlin because of economic conditions, Trader Joe's Bistro Biscuits are going to make you happy you stayed stateside. These are classic European caramelized cookies, thin and crispy with a cinnamon-y flavor. Their oblong shape and thin profile makes them ideal companions for coffee and tea. It also makes them easy to dunk; to dunk or not is a personal decision we'll leave to you, though we will advise in the affirmative simply because it's so satisfying!
Our buyers have encountered – and enjoyed – cookies like these nearly everywhere they've traveled in Europe – cafes, bistros and even airplanes! You don't have to stick with the coffee/tea suggestion; branch out if you like. Crumble Bistro Biscuits atop ice cream or layer them in a yogurt or pudding parfait. You could also pull them straight from the package and eat them on their own, no accompanying beverage or dessert required. We're selling each seven ounce package of Bistro Biscuits for $1.99, an excellent value no matter the economic conditions.
