Sweet Finds: Kansas City Tea Cookies
Kansas City Tea Cookies are addictive little nibbles. They come in individual 6 ounce bags from Best Regards Bakery based in Olathe, Kansas. They look a bit like Russian Tea Cookies or Mexican Wedding Cookies, those melt-in-your-mouth, powdered sugar dusted wonders, but they're also crunchy and immensely satisfying.
Each cookie is precisely sized for one bite, and they come in flavors like lemon (clean and summer-bright) and margarita. For a memorably rich bite, go for the Chocolate Truffle cookies, which bridge the gap between cookie and deep chocolate truffle with a confident crunch. My personal favorites, however, are the Snickerdoodle cookies, crisp throughout and ridiculously light, almost airy in texture. They're flavored with cinnamon and one surprise ingredient—apple cider! Make sure to keep these in the pantry for midnight snacks, and don't forget a glass of milk.
