My kids saw these and freaked out. I hate walking by the freezer with all the ice cream and other frozen goodies when I am with the kids because they grab boxes and boxes of treats and I am constantly putting them back. I do let a few through, otherwise our freezer would be filled up with things like Trader Joe’s Mini Cheesecake Cones.
On the surface they look like ice cream cones, but these are a completely different animal. The are actually a Florentine cookie made to look like a cone filled with sweet cream cheese. Florentine cookies are made out of almonds and sugar and usually a thin, crisp type of cookie originating in Italy. So after my kids begged me to buy them, we decided to have them after dinner that night.
There isn’t too much to these. There are only four in a box, so they will go quickly. We each got one and I bit into the cream cheese filling and Florentine cookie cone. I thought I had been transported to another dimension. Boy, are those good! Unfortunately, they are so good, I ate it in about 10 seconds and so did everyone else and all four cookies were gone like a snap of the fingers! My kids begged me to buy more boxes and I will have to oblige them next time I am at Trader Joe’s. Like the Trader Joe’s picture on their website, drizzling these with some dark chocolate syrup would put them in a different dimension.
The really nice thing about these is that they don’t melt at room temperature or don’t melt very quickly, so you could buy a bunch of them and put them out for treats at a party and not worry about them getting messy. I’ll be buying more soon!
