This review was tough for me to write. Not because the gluten-free cookies from My Dad's Cookies weren't good - far from it. I struggled with it because I couldn't decide which variety deserved the most praise. Was it the mini Black & Whites, with their pillowy yellow-cake centers coated with vanilla and chocolate icings? Or the raspberry jam-filled Linzer cookies dusted with powdered sugar? The Chocolanos were a contender too - how could a facsimile of a Pepperidge Farm Milano cookie not be?
Mozzarelli's Italian restaurant in New York City, which serves 18 different gluten-free pizzas and 14 gluten-free cakes. (Tiramisu, I hear you calling my name!) The daughter of one of the owners has celiac disease, and the cookies are produced in a separate area of the restaurant to avoid cross-contamination.
The cookies, of course, are available at the restaurant, but you don't have to go to Manhattan to get your hands on them. Locally, they're sold at area McCaffrey's markets and Big Bear Natural Foods, Food For All in Mt. Airy, The Market of Lafayette Hill, Water to Go in Pennsauken, McFarlan's Market in Merchantville and Health Haven in Hainesport. The cookies can also be ordered online.
