Gluten-free shortbread cookies by Schar look a bit like Lorna Doones, with their beautifully decorative surfaces. If memory serves, though, that is where the similarity ends. Lorna Doones are smoother, less gritty, less sandy and not overly sweet, as these cookies are. Walker's shortbreads are really memorable, though. Made only with flour, sugar, butter and salt, the quality of the ingredients truly justifies the price. The richness of the butter, the smoothness of the texture, the perfect degree of sweetness....all that can make you wish for a quick discovery of a glutaid (as in Lactaid) pill in the need future. Until then, perhaps other Schar cookies will do when your sweet tooth acts up. There is certainly enough variety to choose from in the Schar's line: chocolate o's, ladyfingers, chocolate and vanilla sandwich cremes, chocolate-dipped cookies and a selection of what we used to call "sugar wafers" in the following flavors: cocoa, hazelnut, vanilla and chocolate hazelnut.
