The holiday season is a time of year known for its cheerful music, festive decor, and, of course, cookies. While chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and sugar cookies usually get all the glory, shortbread cookies are the tried and true variety that deserves a little extra love. Fortunately, Trader Joe’s agrees, and the grocery store’s latest dessert item is designed to bring friends and family together over a mutual love of shortbread.

Trader Joe’s Shareable Shortbread French Butter Cookie

A brand new cookie has landed on the shelves of Trader Joe’s, and if you plan to try it you should strongly consider inviting a friend or two to join you. The Shareable Shortbread French Butter Cookie is the size of a dinner plate, and it is meant to be shared with a group, just as it has historically been enjoyed in its native Poitou region of western France. The tasty treat has simple ingredients, including butter, sea salt, and almonds, and you can rest assured that there won’t be any leftovers.

Trader Joe’s Shareable Shortbread French Butter Cookie is $7.99, so it’s affordable enough to bring to every holiday party you attend this season, and it’s versatile enough that you’ll never get bored. Naturally you can enjoy the cookie with any and every flavor of ice cream, or pair it with a cappuccino or coffee. You can even enjoy the cookie on its own with an after dinner drink, like port or sparkling wine.

Trader Joe’s has been showing off when it comes to dessert this holiday season. Between the store’s Boozy Macarons, Danish Cookies, and Pretzel Bread Pudding, this latest addition will only sweeten your next trip to the store. There’s no telling how long the Shareable Shortbread French Butter Cookie will be available, so, if you plan to try one, call your friends and grab your keys before they’re sold out.
