Growing up, some of my fondest memories are recollections of moments in the kitchen alongside my mom baking treats and sweets for friends and family. She would lovingly teach me all of her favorite recipes, showing me how to carefully measure out the flour, cream the butter and sugar together, separate the eggs, and form the cookies. You name it, we baked it. I remember the smile on her face, the sweet smell in the air and most importantly, the taste of those delicious cookies!
When an opportunity to purchase a small, Italian bakery in my hometown presented itself, the nostalgia hit me, and there I was, back in the kitchen of my childhood, looking at my mother’s flour dusted cheeks and look of poised focus as she worked on me and my brother’s favorite treats. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to work alongside my mother again making sweets that put smiles on people’s faces, so the two of us became business partners, acquired the small bakery and set out to make it our own.
We started with Old World Italian cookie recipes and then made it our mission to source the finest and cleanest ingredients we could, ensuring the quality and taste of our confections matched the passion we have in our hearts for baking. We took it one cookie at a time, mastering a softer biscotti, then moving on to our gourmet cookies, all the while falling in love with our Signature White Chocolate Raspberry cookie.
Now with three girls of my own, it is such blessing to pass down these memories and moments spent baking with their grandmother and me. I only hope Giorgio Cookie Company can bring your family as many smiles as it has brought mine.
