One of the custards we were looking forward to most this month was buttery sugar cookie, which they kept running out of so it took us some time to get it. We are fans of sugar cookies and Christmas cookie (although not exactly a sugar cookie, it's not that far off in flavor) is one of our favorite custards of all time from Shake Shack's repertoire. How would buttery sugar cookie fare in our rankings?
We didn't get this one until the last Wednesday of the month, which meant I spent the entire month waiting for the day when we could try the buttery sugar cookie custard. Sadly, it missed the mark for me. When I first tried it, I was expecting that buttery sweet flavor you get from an actual sugar cookie, but it tasted like nothing. Maybe just some vanilla, but not even much of that. It was just kind of there and had this vaguely sweet flavor that didn't taste like anything in particular. I was disappointed with that. The last few spoonfuls I had did leave an aftertaste of sweetness on my tongue that was reminiscent of a sugar cookie, but I didn't get any of that from the custard itself unfortunately.
I... was really disappointed by this custard. With so many expectations with how amazing Christmas Cookie was, we were both really looking forward to trying this. We got a double since it was the last day, and we really thought we were going to love it. There was none of that classic sugar cookie flavor, and there didn't seem to be any crystallized sugar which is always the best part of any sugar cookie.
