Petite Palmiers at Costco

The Driscoll's strawberries at Costco this week smelled so good that I found myself walking around Costco looking for shortcakes.  

I briefly considered the Walker's shortbread, but decided these Petite Palmiers from Sugar Bowl Bakery might be closer to the traditional round cake for strawberry shortcake. First, the bad news, these are too crispy to work as a base for strawberry shortcake. Second, the good news, the taste works great with berries. 

I served them plain together, but if you have a sweet tooth, or the fruit isn't perfectly ripe, you might want to cut up and sugar the fruit first.

I'm so happy I tried the Palmiers. These big, but light, cookies (110 calories each) are a perfect compliment to fruit - not too sweet.  The package was $6.99 for 2 pounds at my Nashville Costco.  I ended up freezing 2/3 of the cookies to serve with other seasonal fruits. Peaches up next.
