This Christmas, my son and I received really nice Christmas treats. We were given a big tray of assorted cookies that were yummy and delicious! One had to try it to believe it.
I was introduced by my son to Janet Schwab. Instantly, I found out about her inner creative desire. She has a passion and an energy for baking that comes with highly-crafted flair. What is most appealing to me is her effort to put it in practice.
Janet partnered with Grandma Rosa to creat a one of a kind pastries. Grandma Rosa is from Italy and, no need to mention, a great cook and baker. With her help, Janet is making tradition come alive. In these modern times, we are forgetting our ancient and authentic ways of cooking and baking. That's were Janet's creative thinking came into play.
Together they have given us a great store: Cookies Fresco
I tried their three layer almond trio which reminds me of my own home-cooking. It is very good. I have tried all the cookies and I could not pick one that I like over another. They all are yummy. Some key ingredients have been imported from Italy like Almond Liqueur and many more. They are located in Elmhurst, Illinois and I am looking forward to seeing the bakery shop myself on an up-coming weekend.
