Any true Trader Joe's fan knows the happiness that comes with ube-flavored items (hello, Ube Pancake Mix), and leave it to the affordable grocer to fill our carts (and stomachs) up with another mouthwatering treat: Ube Tea Cookies. The new product is already flying off shelves and has a limit of two boxes of cookies per household (because they're not messin' around!). The purple biscuits get their name, hue, and flavor from ube, which is a purple yam that originates in the Philippines, and while that may sound fancy, they're only $4 a box! The craveable cookies feature all-butter shortbread that's almost too good to be true. Blended with ube puree, cinnamon, and vanilla, and then generously topped with powdered sugar, we dare you to have just one.
Paired with tea, coffee, or other ube-flavored delicacies, this new dessert is sure to leave your taste buds satisfied. The next time you head to TJ's, we suggest putting these on the top of your "Must Get" list. Whether you've got a sweet tooth that just won't quit or you're in the market to try something new, we can promise you that these won't disappoint. Pro tip: sprinkle them on Ube Ice Cream for best results, and enjoy!
