About the only thing better than getting a check in the mail is getting delicious cookies in the mail. Banana Moon Baking Company based in Catskill sent me four different cookies to review: Dark Chocolate Chipotle, Cherry Pecan Thumbprints, The Good, Bad, and the Oatmeal, and Raspberry Lemon Thumbprints. I have to say they were all delicious. The Dark Chocolate Chipotle is the most unique out of the bunch because it has chipotle pepper in it, which gives it a spicy kick. The Cherry Pecan Teacakes were moist and flaky. I think my favorites were The Good, Bad, and the Oatmeal, though. It's a very chunky cookie with a few sneaky healthy ingredients thrown in like walnuts, whole flax seed, and raw pumpkin seeds. Really good cookies like these are worth the calories!
