|Touche Touchet cookies|
That should be Touche Touchet's pitch to sell Valentine's Day cookies. Beautiful, delicious cookies are individually wrapped in the displays at the Columbia bakery.
You'll pay $4 a cookie. But they're worth it. Hand-decorated with delicate script and a mix of slogans that run from the traditional ("I Love You") to the irreverent ("Bite Me," "Text Me") to even the anti-Valentine ("Stupid Cupid").
These are Touche Touchet's shortbread cookies with icing that is solid and lightly sweet. It's an adult flavor and a treat that's worth the price and the special trip to Shaker Drive. I went two years ago when the shortbread was formed into as heart-shaped lollipops. They continue to have fun in that kitchen and let you bring the fun home.
