I have a serious soft spot for two things:
Family owned businesses and local bakeries.
So when I found out that my friend’s family owns and operates Jarosch Bakery in the Chicago suburbs, you can imagine how excited I was.
Some history of the Jarosch Bakery: (http://jaroschbakery.com/pages/about-us.php)
She first introduced us to her family’s coffee cake, which was so divine that we all gathered around and endlessly pawed at it (ooh-ing and ahh-ing), as if it were a new born. It was so good that it has become sort of an obsession. We only have to say “Coffee Cake” for all of us to instantly become googly-eyed.
The second item we tried were these easter bunny cakes last April.
They were fluffy and light, just the way you would want a bunny to be!
Last week, we were all so lucky to try another Jarosche specialty.
A pastry stick: A log of puff pastry dough with apricot and cheese filling
We instantly abandoned everything we were doing and gravitated toward this treat.
The pastry stick was delightful! We couldn’t agree more that every bite was indeed a taste delight!
