I wanted to let you all know that I have low carb, gluten free almond cookies available for sale. These were a huge hit at PorcFest. For every dozen you order with BTCs I will give you three free cookies! Just mention this post in an e-mail to baklava@mandrik.com. Smiley

There anyway to fix the shipping costs?

2 dozen cookies and 1.5lbs of chocolate is $16.90 via bitcoin for shipping ($56.35) and $10.95 ($50.40 total) via Paypal. If anything you should give a discount for paying via Bitcoin since Paypal sucks.

Yeah this is an ongoing issue with BitPay. I've done this for a few others and I'll be happy to send you the right cost for this order. It should be $50.40 + you'll get 6 extra cookies for paying with Bitcoin (that's your "Paypal sucks" bonus! Smiley ). I'll PM you the info!

I ordered 3lbs of Baklava and some cookies yesterday... why aren't they here yet!  I'm starving!

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

You could have paid extra to overnight them. Wink

George, If I was to vac seal a tray and freeze it, would it be edible after I thawed it out? how long does it last in the fridge if i vac seal it?

Since it has a low moisture content, it freezes very well. I would say it even gets more tender and delicious after it's been frozen. It's very edible. If you vac seal it, it would probably last 5 years in the freezer. In the fridge and vac sealed, probably something like two months before I would start to suspect that it's going bad.

Though I don't know how it's gonna last that long in your household. I once ate a whole pan by myself in about a week. It's addicting.

Baklava certainly does freeze well!

Absolutely. I'm actually heading out of town tomorrow and won't be home until next Thursday. Would you be ok with waiting until the 13th for your order to ship? I'll throw in a few free cookies. Smiley

Thanks!

Great customer service and shipped out very quickly with tracking.

Yummy chocolate baklava!

Still trying to figure out whether I love the cookies or not. A little dry with something just a little bit off with the taste but I cannot put my tongue on it. But they do seem to grow on you. Might be the low carb/gluten free thing. Perhaps I want some chocolate on them. A big fan of the coconut flour.

Overall, definitely high quality products and worth a try.

The cookies do have erythritol in them, and that has a "cooling" taste to it. There isn't a lot, but it does add to the cookie. I think they taste best frozen. Give that a try. Smiley

Oh and the dough is basically low carb marzipan. Seriously. A friend & I used it to make little characters on a low carb cake and it worked well! Very tasty, too. I should sell that. Tongue

lolwut - your order went out today. Hope you're hungry! Cheesy

I've been baking like a mad man lately and I was curious if anyone would be interested in different products. I'm open to making new things to sell. Just let me know here or in a PM!

If I ever get a nice Hobart slicer I think jerky would be a great thing to make. Wink

Huh, I saw one at our state auction a few months ago, but it didn't look particularly sanitary. Whack it up with a heavy cleaver, and you should be able to chop lots of slices in an hour.

That would get tiring after a while. I guess I was spoiled by growing up with restaurant equipment (my dad owned a diner). I have a Moffat convection oven in the home right now and I could bake 8 dozen cookies in under 15 minutes with it.

But yes, I've seen equipment go at restaurant auctions. Maybe I'll eventually find a decent one at a fair price.

If you've been waiting to try the almond cookies, I'd order some now because the latest batch turned out absolutely amazing. They're almost perfectly like the texture of a real buttery, chewy (but crispy on the outside at the same time) cookie.
