During the Victorian era, cookies were known as "sweet biscuits" and were eaten only by paupers, who were forced to substitute rich, hearty tallow with inexpensive sugar. Relish this sweet substitution with today's Groupon: for $16, you get two dozen gourmet cookies (a $32 value) at La Rosette Bakery in Richardson.
La Rosette is a molten-chocolate melting pot of American, Hispanic, and European baking traditions, bringing a well-rounded approach to artistically crafted confections and deliciously decorative cookies. Each two-dozen assortment features a combination of the following mouth melting flavors: chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, chocolate chewy, chocolate chip macaroon, chocolate dream, white chocolate cranberry, sand tarts, and sugar cookies. As if the delectable double dozen wasn't enough, each order comes carefully packaged in a gift box, making a fabulous hostess gift or Santa Claus carryout container.
The days of softening sticks of salted or unsalted butter, inadvertently eating raw egg, and burning your cookie grabbers by grabbing hot cookies off pans, plates, and electrified cookie jars have gone into that hard, stale past where philosophers sleep. Two dozen cookies solves many of the problems associated with cookies, including scarcity, rareness, and shortage of cookies.
Different culinary traditions approach sweets differently, whether augmenting the natural sweetness of fruits by dusting them with sugar to make a tart or creating the rich creaminess of a slice of cheesecake from scratch. When the owners of La Rosette began compiling recipes for their bakery, they didn’t want to focus on just one of these indulgent categories, but instead chose to incorporate the best flavors from Hispanic, American, and European dessert traditions. The result is a mix of cakes, petit fours, and pastries. La Rosette's bakers present creamy forkfuls of tres leches strawberry mousse cake or their Oreo-filled bon bons—which are even more decadent than Oreo-filled Oreos. They can also create classics for customer shindigs, carefully baking a family’s holiday pumpkin pie or birthday cake—the latter they offer in more than 20 flavors.
