Cookies From the Hart Etsy Shop Review

Cookies are everything to me, they are certainly my entire life. I think that if I was robbed and they took a bag of cookies instead of my phone or wallet, I would be equally as upset.  How dare they enjoy those round circles of heaven when they are unauthorized to eat them! My favorite cookies are chocolate chip, although I do love snickerdoodles and sugar cookies too.  There's nothing like a freshly baked cookie right out of the oven with an ice cold glass of milk.  If you haven't indulged in a cookie lately, why not do so today?

Cookies From the Hart is an Etsy shop ran by owner Joanna.  Joanna has a passion and love for baking cookies.  She doesn't make just ordinary cookies, she makes fabulously filled cookies! You can enjoy delicious and unique gourmet filled cookies that are also gluten free or vegan.  Each order contains a dozen carefully handmade and filled cookies.  The cookie flavors are out of this world combinations like chocolate chip filled with brownie, red velvet, party cake, oatmeal raisin cream, dark chocolate mint, and so much more.  I love that each flavor is filled with a certain thing, it's like a party in your mouth! These cookies are perfect for any occasion and would make a fabulous birthday present.  

When I stumbled upon Joanna's shop, I knew I had to try these insanely good looking treats.  I couldn't wrap my ahead around how amazing a filled cookie would be.  When you aren't sure if you'd like a cookie or brownie, why not have both? This cookie takes two sweets that you love and pairs them together into one mind-blowing yummy.

I was sent a dozen chocolate filled brownie cookies. They are gluten free, an ideal choice for those with sensitivities.  These cookies looked straight out of cookie heaven.  I couldn't wait to try them.

Excuse me, can someone please bring out the defibrillators? My heart has stopped from seeing these glorious cookies.  Only cookie defibrillators can bring me back.  Look at the beautiful golden brown color of the cookie paired with the dark brownie inside.  It's cookie art. 

The common misconception about gluten-free cookies (and anything else gluten-free) is that it contains zero taste.  I do not follow a gluten-free diet, but it is good sometimes to cut out gluten where you can.  These cookies are very dense and filled with luscious brownie.  What can be better than combining chocolate and brownie together? Nothing.  I mean absolutely nothing.  Not even winning $1,000,000. ;)

I heated them in the microwave for a few seconds because I prefer my cookies warm.  When I took the cookies out of the microwave, they were a little melty, but looked like pure perfection.  The cookie was warm and out of this world.  The cookie was moist and soft and I could taste that sweet chocolate flavor right away.  Like I mentioned earlier, the cookie itself was very thick and dense.  In the middle of your cookie bite was the star of the show, the brownie.  The brownie was soft and rich.  Despite being gluten free, the cookie packed a ton of flavor that tasted wonderful. I was in absolute heaven with them.  I had to control myself from eating another one.  I think the only thing that stopped me was the fact that they were very filling.  You might want to pace yourself with these.  A glass of cold milk or nice cup of tea would be the perfect accompaniment to enjoying a cookie. 

If you think you've enjoyed a cookie before, you haven't.  Until you've tried Joanna's cookies, you've been living under a cookie rock.  She will coax you out from under that rock with the promise of one of her filled cookies.  Trust me, it will be worth it.  Go ahead and indulge in her cookies today.  You will love them.

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Cookies From the Hart for providing me with a complimentary order of cookies.  All thoughts are my own.
