Parmesan cookies from Spill'n the Beans

parmesan cookies

Cheesy, salty, savory.

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.

Sincerely,
AOA

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.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
