Our vaca (and my cookie quest)are still in progress but I could not go to sleep tonight before thanking Pilinut for the Kika's recomm. After the major claustrophobic experience of Hi Rise on 18th, I returned to the car w/ my precious pkg of Kika's cardamom espresso shortbreads dipped in dark chocolate, and........oh moy gowad!!!!!!! now THIS is an unusual and amazing cookie. I will try other kika's now that i have tasted these and will also follow other CHs' suggestions and will report back. Pilinut, if you are ever coming to boston, plse let me know and i will be honored to show my appreciation by touring you around or making boston recomm's to you! Th you sooooo much.
