The past Sunday was really a revelation in some way. I had a lunch experience which lasted until about 6pm at Stadtflucht Bergmühle and there I tried cookies which are near perfection. To be honest, I didn’t actually eat a cookie, but I tried the cookie dough of Cutz in three different ways. But I think their simple cookie can’t be far behind.
My favorite cookies so far had been the ones in Montreal from Monsieur Felix and Mister Norton. So far no other cookie could reach their level. Cutz now actually managed to top that. Taste-wise I cannot really say what’s better. Probably because the last time I had cookies from Canada was in 2008 or so. That means that in my memory they will always be delicious. But Cutz is produced and available in Austria. And most convenient you can buy it at your local Merkur supermarket.
What makes them top my list of favorite cookies is that you can read the list of ingredients. It’s all natural with no added chemicals, artificial flavors or any E numbers (food additive). Best of all you buy it frozen and it keeps for year. Don’t really think that is necessary but to each his own. In any case, you cut (hence the name) the slices needed and put them in the oven (or microwave for lazy people like me). It’s as simple as that.
Cutz comes in five different flavors and I was lucky enough to test and taste three of them at my visit to Stadtflucht Bergmühle. ‘Macadamia loves Grapefruit’ made up the bottom of the cheesecake. That was the first indication that I was in to something special. That is one heavenly flavor.
Then next I tasted ‘You make me Nuts’ which has a deeply nutty flavor. I was told the dough was twice baked into some sort of biscotti and then these were used instead of ladyfingers in the Tiramisu. Wow that was one fine Tiramisu. Although a fan of the classic version which is easy to cut and has a thick layer of dark chocolate powder on top, I enjoyed what the nuts did to this version. The roasting aroma was amazing and heaved this Tiramisu onto the next level.
My third and last dessert for this day was a “Wild chocolate Affairs”. This rich and super intense chocolate dough was baked in the microwave and served with a scoop of passion fruit ice cream and raspberry sauce. What pure bliss! I was glad that I had no more room for otherwise I would have been brazen enough to ask for a refill. Writing about it now, it seems like a shame that I didn’t. But no worries, I can make it at home and so can you! Yours, Pollybert
PS: This is not a paid add. If it sounds like a promotion, it is. Because the Cutz cookie dough is something special and I didn’t want to keep that to myself. I for one am getting it for my freezer. What I like best about it, is that I can bake only one cookie at a time (and that it basically keeps forever). No more pigging out with a whole box cookies but eating rather like a disciplined person just one cookie. At least that’s the plan. I’ll keep you updated on how well I am doing with that. Let me know how you like them!
