24 Days of Cookies: Day Two

I was amazed at the grand selection of cookies when I entered Wagner’s European Bakery & Café in Olympia.  Yes, I had driven my ass all the way down to Olympia for some damn cookies.  Shut up, it was worth it.

The Florentine’s crispy texture along with its chocolate and caramel taste makes me want to moan in ecstasy.  But I won’t.  At least, not in public.  You can find the Florentine in a wide variety of forms.  I’ll take that combination any way I can get it.

If you are looking to get away from the traditional American side of your Christmas calories, try and explore your European side.  Your European side might be better looking anyway. â€" Steph DeRosa
