Review: Cookies Con Amore

Cookies always cheer me up. I don’t need many, just one or two, and I usually have a smile on my face. Cookies Con Amore, Italian cookies made by Fernanda Capraro, recently introduced a line of gluten-free treats that are sure to put a smile on your face.

More about Cookies Con Amore:

In 2005, Cookies Con Amore was born when Fernanda and Angelo decided to devote themselves to what they love best: cookies. “Who can resist cookie?” asks Fernanda, who is the lead baker. The company has grown to more than 20 employees, but all orders are still baked with love and in small batches at the company’s 8,000 square foot bakery in Vista, California.

Cookies con Amore are sold at Whole Foods and many gourmet grocery stores in the U.S. You can also order directly from the Cookies con Amore online shop where the entire line of classic, gluten-free, sugar-free as well as seasonal cookies are available.

It only seemed fitting that these cookies came packaged two to a package. It was hard to decide where to begin when sampling, but I started with the Raspberry Linzer, which just so happen to be my favorite. They were delightful, as were everyone of these Italian gluten-free treats. The gluten-free treats are certified by the GFCO (Gluten-Free Certification Organization). The varieties include:

  • Raspberry Linzer
  • Ricciarelli
  • Pignoli
  • Reginette
  • Polentine
  • Nonnine
  • Biscottini
  • Amaretti
  • Cuccidati Fig Cookies

Cookies Con Amore Gluten-Free Treats can be purchased online or in select Whole Foods Stores.
