Bem-vindo a Portugual! Welcome to Portugal!
I ran away from home a few weeks ago, straight into the welcoming arms of World Market and found a plethora of international delights. These cookies kept beckoning from several different shelves. “COMPRE-ME! COMPRE-ME! (BUY ME! BUY ME!)” they chanted.
I was intrigued. Cookies. From Portugual. There was no way this was going to end badly, I was certain. Unlike the sake incident of aught nine, I knew that cookies were a relatively safe choice.
Readers of Playgroups are No Place for Children, please meet Princesa Assortment Biscuits! An assortment of cookies, indeed! Wafers, cookies shaped like hearts and pretzels covered with chocolate, cookies with chocolate centers, and buttery cookies were gobbled down by a ravenous family of four in less than a week. We had several boxes of Girl Scout Cookies lying around the house that went completely untouched while we finished the Portuguese cookies.
Hailing from Portugal, these tasty cookies are, well, tasty. EVERYONE in the family loved them. “So crunchy!” exclaimed Carson. “So crunchy!” exclaimed Ella, as she says whatever Carson says. “MaahMrrmrrrmmm!” exclaimed Tate, his mouth full of cookies.
(Dearest FTC, these cookies were a purchase I made all by myself! I’ve never even been to Portugal! Furthermore, I’ve never conversed with any companies (PR or Princesa Assortment Biscuit makers) regarding my love for these cookies. Okay? Okay!)
