It’s really awesome to find locally made treats, particularly when the company is owned by an old friend. Nona Rosa’s is just such an operation, established by Mark Snyder in 2010 to honor the tradition of his Italian grandmother’s holiday pizzelles.
When Snyder got married a few years ago, the only gift he wanted was a pizzelle iron. He got his wish and soon began making the crispy waffle-like cookies, selling them to local artisan markets.
Pizzelles are perfect for serving with coffee or ice cream. They are available in a variety of flavors, like lemon, and traditional vanilla anise. In addition, Snyder makes seasonal flavors like pumpkin, which I had the pleasure of sampling recently. He also gave me some chewy macaroons which I shared with my Dad….he loves coconut.
Look for them at Savi Urban Market, Bella Cucina, and at local farmer’s markets!
