My Grandmother's Recipe
apron hand-made by Grandma
Early dismissal from school every Wednesday meant an afternoon of baking adventures with my grandparents. It was in their Brooklyn kitchen that I learned time-honored baking techniques and classic family recipes, including cookie brittle.
Made with just a few, honest ingredients and baked in the oven, we called it “cookie brittle” for its crumbly, grainy texture.
The dough embodies a back-to-basics classicism with four core ingredients:
flour, butter, sugar, salt.
Infused with real foods from the Italian table ...
fresh organic rosemary
... the dough becomes Brooklyn Brittle.
A DISTINCTIVE, BISCUIT-LIKE TREAT
bursting with unique flavor.
Faithful to my baking beginnings, I continue to make Brooklyn Brittle by hand, using my grandparents' recipe as the landscape for imaginative and Italian-inspired flavor combinations.
Proving that old can be new!
