Dear Dish and Dirt:
Thank you very much for pointing us in the direction of the parmesan cookies at Spill'n the Beans in Troy. They are, in a word, delightful.
So, we'd never heard of parmesan cookies before seeing them mentioned on Dish and Dirt. And after scoping them in the case at Spill'n the Beans on 3rd Street in Troy, we were a little skeptical. They just looked like shortbread cookies. But one taste and it all made sense.
As you take your first bite, your brain is thinking "shortbread, buttery, sweet." Then your tongue registers "parmesan, salty, savory." It's like a shortbread cookie and a parmesan wafer had been bred à la the golden doodle, one of those designer cross-breed dogs (golden retriever and poodle). It's familiar, but just a little different -- in a nice way.
These parm cookies would be great to serve with drinks. And they're cheap -- a dozen at Spillin' the Beans is just $3.
