So Far is quickly becoming one of my favorite local gluten-free bakeries and has created another mouthwatering treat with their adorable frosted sugar cookie. Shaped like a sunny yellow flower, this delicious cookie tasted just the way I wanted it to; like the soft, buttery cookies I used to have fun decorating as a kid with my mom. These rich sugary cookies had a subtle hint of both almond and vanilla, which appealed to both the kid in me as well as the foodie I have become. They were flaky, but not crumbly, dry or hard. The soft sugar cookie was topped with a very sweet and fluffy frosting. On its own, the frosting would have been way too sweet but it was balanced by the more subtly flavored cookie, creating a very tasty flavor combination.

Made with simple, common ingredients like rice flour, cream cheese, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, almond and salt, this cookie is not pretending to be a health food. It is just a very similar alternative to a sugar cookie that is sorely missed by celiacs and gluten sensitive people. So Far prides themselves on the act of avoiding the tendency to use any chemicals or unnatural ingredients; they even use natural plant-derived dyes to color their frostings. Their products taste as if they were made from scratch, with lots of care and attention to detail.

Taste: Buttery, sugary, rich, and sweet, these cookies could satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. They were very similar to cookies I enjoyed before celiac diagnosis. The frosting was very sweet and complimented the rich cookie nicely.

Labeling: This frosted sugar cookie was packaged singly in a sealed plastic sleeve with a sticker on the front stating what the product was, who made it, as well as their gluten free status . Since So Far is a small bakery, legally they do not have to provide nutrition facts, but they did have a sticker listing all ingredients used.

Packaging: One cookie was packaged inside of a sealed plastic sleeve.
