When the concept of a rye-based cookie was presented to us, we were a little skeptical. See, when we think of rye, we imagine a big ol’ vegan Reuben, not a dessert-y baked good. But we were blown away once we actually got a taste of New York-based Black and Blanco’s Sandcastles—flavors like Vanilla Black Sesame, Marzipan, and Maple-Dusted Cardamom truly embody the best of both East and West, offering a gentle sweetness and crisp but buttery texture with a generous dose of rich flavor. We also love that they’re organic and free of wheat, GMOs, preservatives, and refined sugars, as well as corn, soy, and canola. Sometimes, less really is more.
