Everything we sell is hand-made, hand-baked, hand-cut and hand-packed with love and devotion. Enjoy!
Mahlab is an aromatic spice made from the seed kernel of the St. Lucie cherry stone found in the Mediterranean. Tastes a bit like cherries, a bit like almonds, and a bit like rose water. The flavor is delicate, the bottom of the loaf pressed into crushed, toasted pistachios, the top sprinkled with lightly toasted sesame seeds.
Pairings: Enjoy with mixed fruit, any flavor gelato, coffee or my current favorite - pumpkin spiced tea
JG: Another original biscotto for GB! Unique, delightful, delicious! Our Mahlab Biscotto is a take on a wonderful Syrian cookie made by my friend, Rana. The Syrian version is a delicious, buttery disc. Our Italian version is, well, a delicious biscotto. We've gotten great reviews from family and friends who were kind enough to participate in a blind taste test. We've also gotten lots of questions and wows from the men who happened by my slicing table at our production commissary. We'll be interested to know what you think :)
