Big Girl Baking: Family Recipe for SuccessBy FLORENCE FABRICANT
Published: February 17, 2009
Aimee, Regina and Jody Milano all left corporate jobs to bake together, something the sisters had done while growing up in Yonkers.
Now, their company, Big Girl Baking in Bronxville, N.Y., turns out buttery, homey cookies like chocolate mocha chip or ginger and black forest chunk.
Their chocolate shortbreads (sables du chocolate) are dense and their biscotti are more tender than crisp, thanks to cornmeal in the dough. Most of the cookies, sold at biggirlbaking.com, are $17 to $18 a pound.
They also bake small, ethereally light pecan crusted cheesecakes, $3 each, which can be delivered in New York City and in southern Westchester County (they are too delicate for shipping).
They can be ordered by calling (877) 721-3644 or via the Web site.
