Somewhere in the Emily Post/Miss Manners realm of etiquette no no’s, we think they should add a section on fall snacking. After all, there comes a time for all of us to put away the sorbet (along with those white shoes we aren’t supposed to wear after Labor Day) and focus on more appropriate seasonal treats. That’s where Kessler Cookie Company comes in.
Offering handmade, all natural cookies and confections, the boys at Kessler Cookie Company have us cramming nuts into our mouth faster than a bulimic squirrel. In this case, the nuts are covered in caramel, infused with a slight spice and orange undertone and accompanied by popcorn as part of their yummy Caramel-Nut Corn ($15 per pound).
Our second seasonal fave is the Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut cookies ($25 per pound). Oatmeal cookies by themselves can be as empty as the expression on our Botox-filled face, but there’s something about the added cranberry and walnuts that drives us, um, nuts.
So pitch the parfait and start noshing like the fashionista you really are. Extra snaps if your cookies match your handbag.
