Home Baked with Love
Growing up in Bridgeview, Illinois, I learned to make cookies, brownies, cakes, breads and other baked goods, all from scratch and all my mother’s and grandmother’s recipes. My fondest childhood memories, in fact, are of being in the kitchen baking with my Mom. I loved seeing my baking being enjoyed by my brothers and sisters, and friends. It brought me happiness and joy to share my love of baking, so much that I eventually became “the baker” in our family when the time came to fill out our mother’s shoes.
Of everything I baked, my Peanut Butter Pie Cookie rose to everyone’s top of the “most requested” list. I created this cookie in 1992, handcrafting each with its own peanut butter truffle center. It rapidly became my signature cookie and the primary reason I began my baking career. I always had a dream of sharing this unique peanut butter cookie with all the “peanut butter lovers” in the world.
