First, Happy Halloween all. I have failed for three years running to find a chocolate skull in time for Halloween. I did finally find one today, online -- from Vosges, based in the Chicago area. So, provided they haven't run out already, I'll cover that in November.
However, I believe I found something better for today. Yesterday, I visited La Biscotteria (Redwood City, CA) for the first time.
This Italian themed, family-run business (see image of owner and shop above), sells biscotti and very tasty baked goods, pottery, and other items, such as chocolate dipped figs. Their Amaretti cookies (wheat-free) are excellent, and are available with and without chocolate, in small and large sizes. Today I enjoyed a large Amaretti cookie (with chocolate).
(The image of several of these cookies on plate above is from La Biscotteria website.) Definitely a great Halloween treat. An (optional) small glass of port might go well with this cookies in the future.
