I love going to Veniero's. Actually I dream about going to Veniero's. They have the best Italian cookies I've had anywhere. I use to go there when I would visit friends in NY but hadn't been for awhile. My last trip we were in the neighborhood so I asked my husband if we could walk down 11th and stop at Veniero's. We did and there was that wonderful selection of cookies. I ended up ordering a half a pound of cookies. Luckily, we had a freezer where were staying so I could eat a few and was able to keep them fresh in the freezer until I wanted a couple.
They're just like your Italian Mama use to make when she had the time.
