Thorntons Sicilian Lemon Merangue Cookies Review
The smell of lemon is the first thing that hits you as you open the bag in the box. That and the HUGE size of these cookies. This is the fourth kind of cookie in the new range of Thorntons biscuits (cookies).
The lemon is quite pronounced and it seems to have been slightly enhanced in the mixture but that isn’t really detracting from the cookie itself. The base cookie is a fairly standard cookie dough which has had added to it a lemon flavouring and white chocolate covered meringue pieces kind of like a reverse lemon meringue pie.
Mmmmm… piiiieeeeee…. *drools*
While this is a hard cookie, it didn’t seem as hard as the triple chocolate chunk cookies. This means its extra thickness doesn’t impact on teeth 🙂 I had trouble tasting the meringue in the white chocolate but did find it less sweet than the praline cookie.
I’d buy these for a party!
