Welcome to our site!
Many people ask me how I got started in the cookie business. My answer is easy. "My brother made me do it !" At her brothers request, Mary baked a batch of her Italian cookies for a model kitchen display at the Fall Home Show in Oswego. The idea was to entice people to linger at his display. As Aunt Mary tells it, "people just kept coming back for more cookies." The following Monday the phone started ringing with orders.The next spring a commercial kitchen was added on to Mary's home and Aunt Mary's Italian Cookies & Catering was born.Mary says it best when people ask what is so special about her service:"Our food is all homestyle with authentic Italian recipes. As much as possible is made from scratch. Cookies are each hand rolled and hand glazed. They are never mass-produced. Recipes are compiled from both sides of the family -- grandparents, aunts and other relatives. We are known throughout the county for our Italian cookies and award-winning lasagna made with homemade noodles." Call Aunt Mary next time your planning an event... and while your at it, order a batch of her Italian Cookies for yourself!
