Lucky Palate, $2
Sweet and buttery, cashews in their natural state are about as close to shortbread as a nut can get. Vegetarian meal meal service Lucky Palate just nudges them a little further by adding sugar, vegan margarine, flour, and vanilla. The resulting shortbread is rich and sweetly mellow, crisp on the edges with a slightly chewy middle. Unlike some alternative sweets, cashew shortbread doesn't taste like an impostor. It tastes like it was meant to be.
