Grandmother’s secret recipe is a no added fat,
no-cholesterol cookie for our time.
“Generous as she was in giving away her recipes, Grandmother Dina kept the one for Petit Gateau Sec a total secret until the end of her life. Only then did she finally reveal the secret to her daughter, Ahuda, my mother.”
“It is with her blessing and with pride that the Zaliouk family shares these delicious, healthful wonders with your family.”
This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives. It is wonderfully crunchy and does not have to be (paired with something else to be enjoyed). However, it is a delightful accompaniment for coffee, tea, soft cheeses and fine light wines. The rush to eliminate fat from gourmet foods too often has also eliminated most of the flavor, a fact which is in sharp contrast to this enticingly delicious cookie.
Since the introduction of the classic Original flavor, more distinctive variations have been introduced, all of which continue to be packed with roasted almonds.
