When I was a little girl I loved Fig Newtons. As I got a little older, Fig Newtons became fruit-filled and the apple and raspberry flavors were quickly added to the list of cookies that I loved. There aren’t many gluten-free versions of these cookies, so when I came across Orgran’s Wild Raspberry Fruit Filled Biscuits, I had to see how they measured up.
They sure look good, don’t they? As you can see above, the cookies are gluten and dairy-free. More about the cookies:

The real question is – how do they measure up, right? While they aren’t identical to what I remember, they are similar. The cookie is a little crumbly, but the filling has a great raspberry flavor without being overly sweet. I really like that they have real fruit (raisins and raspberries) in the filling. They make a great snack with a cup of tea in the afternoon!
