You guys raved about this cookie brand last year that we had to go with another flavor like this year’s Almond Toffee Crunch cookie by New Orleans company, Love Cookies. These make for the perfect fall snack or put them on a platter for Thanksgiving, you may want to hide them from the kids because you can’t just eat one! You can almost smell the deliciousness that comes with these cookies, which by the way are hand made in their family-owned bakery in downtown New Orleans!

With its dark roux, seasonings, and dehydrated vegetables, you won’t want to have another Thanksgiving without it!
