Prepared by Einat’s Bakery, they contain just almonds, egg white and sugar and are labeled “gluten free.” They are fantastic — delicate, sheer and just the tiniest bit chewy in the center. They seem like they would be perfect with a cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon.
I spoke briefly with the baker (Einat?), who works at the restaurant, to make sure they are prepared in a facility free of cross-contaminants. Though she didn’t speak much English, she seemed to understand the drift of my question and was very reassuring about the safety of these cookies for sufferers of celiac disease. She also said that she was planning to debut a line of gluten-free cakes later this week.
A look at her website shows that Einat makes all kinds of Kosher cakes, cookies and pitas and is now conducting a “Passover mega sale.”
Does anyone else have recommendations for other gluten-free baked goods in town? I’ve tried some that are surprisingly light and leavened, and others that seem like sweetened mud pies.
