Show Dad Your Love With Cookies Con Amore #MBPDadsandGrads19

Thanks to Cookies con Amore for providing me with product to review. All thoughts shared are my own.

If the dad in your life has any kind of a sweet tooth, Cookies con Amore has him covered! They also have you covered with easy and fast ordering to ensure you receive your delicious goodies.

Being a sugar fanatic myself, I am always excited to try "new to me" confection companies that have something interesting to offer. I found Cookies con Amore and loved that they offer authentic Italian cookies that looked truly beautiful on the website

The Gluten-Free Raspberry Linzer is one of my favorite Italian cookies and I was very excited to see that Cookies con Amore included some in their amazing selection they sent my way.

The cookies were packaged handsomely and even included a special "Happy Father's Day" card with the cookie tin! This was an unexpected and very sweet touch. 

My hubby has a huge sweet tooth (as do I!) and I was very excited to treat him (a little early) to this amazing tin of deliciousness from Cookies con Amore. I wasn't sure exactly what to get my guy this year, because he always says he doesn't want anything. If he does actually want something, it's probably something practical that he adds to his Amazon list that isn't exactly "fun" to spoil him with! 

Gifting him these cookies was really fun for me because it gave him a special treat, just for him! However, he did share his cookies with us because, well, we were waiting around and he basically had no choice. His favorite cookie is shown below:

The checkerboard cookies are soft but not too soft and really melt in your mouth. Italian shortbread is delicious! One of my favorites was a special cookie from this tin and that was the iced star cookie. It was a lemon sugar cookie with hard white icing coating it. It was amazing! I don't see that cookie on the website presently, but feel free to contact Cookies con Amore to inquire!

These look amazing, don't they? Well, they are! I want to share a little about Cookies con Amore because I think the history of this company is just as special as the cookies themselves.

Our Story

Fernanda and Angelo Capraro were childhood friends from the village of Sant Elia in the south of Italy to grandmothers who baked for love and honor. Cookies were a mainstay in their homes, always on hand to be enjoyed over conversation and coffee or wine with family and friends. Their cookies were so delicious that when a young man in the village popped “the question” to his beloved, the next question was what would Nonna bake for the wedding.
Fernanda and Angelo took their love for cookies to California in the 1970s, where they started a family of their own and opened a series of Italian delis and the much loved Villa Romana restaurant in Laguna Beach.
During each holiday season, the Capraros followed in family tradition and baked batch upon batch of homemade Italian cookies for friends, family and favorite customers using recipes handed down for generations. They have been known to bring suitcases full of cookies to family weddings by popular request.
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 45 employees, but all orders are still baked with love and in small batches at the company’s 33,000 square foot bakery in San Marcos, 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.
Cookies Con Amore is a true labor of love. We believe that you have to put your heart into your food and we don’t hold back in any way. We’re Italian, after all.
