It’s no secret that New Jersey is home to much of the nation’s Italian-American heritage, and that has seriously shaped its culinary scene. From calzones to baked ziti to braciola, they’ve got the savory side well covered. But what about those sweet treats?
Look no further than the versatile and underappreciated Italian Cookie. A spread with several varieties will be the most beautiful thing on the table. Biscotti, anginetti, baci di dama, ricotta cookies, sandwich cookies, sprinkle cookies, Florentines, pignoli — you name it, it’s in a bakery in Jersey, and it’s worth your attention.
