For Thanksgiving this year my sister made these delectable sesame seed cookies.
The subtle but definite flavor of the cookie was hard to describe except that they were so scrumptious! I would typically think sesame cookies would be savory but the addition of red wine and cinnamon gave them a little bit of a sweet taste :D
My mom sent me away with some of the leftover cookies and I enjoyed them with the Sawtooth Ale by Left Hand Brewing (Longmont, Colorado).
The sweet and savory of the cookie was delicious followed by the Sawtooth Ale. The malts in the ale brought out the sweetness of the cookies and then the light hops provided this pleasantly refreshing combination.
I would like to give you a more technical description of how the flavors complimented each other but honestly I only realized how enjoyable the combination was once the cookies disappeared and my beer was almost gone :P
The Sawtooth Ale by Left Hand is a great ale that they refer to as “both complex and balanced,” which can’t be described better. It also recently won another award in the Great American Beer Festival.
Going boarding so this is my tune:
