Ginger cookie taste-off: La Farine vs. Bakesale Betty

Atomica | Jun 18, 2007 06:12 PM

I'm not into ginger in my sweets, but my husband loves it. On Saturday, we checked out La Farine and Bakesale Betty. I bought a ginger cookie at each place for him to compare. Husband says La Farine's is better. Theirs is a flat, thin cookie covered with sparkling sugar granules. Betty's is a "triple ginger." It's a little thicker and has pieces of crystallized ginger in it. He says too much molasses.

I also got a chocolate macaroon for him at La Farine. He said it really didn't seem like a macaroon. I didn't have any because I generally don't eat coconut in my cookie.

Doesn't La Farine sometimes have macarons? Am I mis-remembering? No cupcakes--saw an rworange report from almost 2 years ago. Wonder if they still make them.
