Mozzicato




Time to get the Italian Christmas cookies at Mozzicato, a bakery in Hartford's South End.  The lovely and friendly Pesta shows them off.  Pesta is from Albania.

John was in line behind me.  He gets cookies every year for his contractors.  He has been coming to Mozzicato in the holiday season since he was a child.

This makes me feel very hungry. :)

John's comments and long patronage of the bakery is a strong endorsement for the place and its goodies.

It's probably a very good job that shop isn't near
me!

Sharon said...

That looks like a delicious treat!

I used to be able to buy pignoli cookies. No one in my new area makes them and I miss them VERY MUCH. Pine nuts are probably too expensive now. Perhaps they exist at Mozzicato!

I'm really not a 'sweet' guy. But I can could go for a plate of these I bet.

They look good and come with such a lovely smile! My own Pfeffernüsse are in the oven right now. There's flour everywhere in the kitchen. :-(

Great! I want some.

I would have to steer clear of this place. In fact, if I were you, I'd probably have to stay in south Florida.

BTW, what's an Albanian "cookie" doing working in an Italian store? :-)

I appreciate the long tradition this shop represents to Hartford. Pretty amazing to have a business continue for this many years.

Oh yes, there's always room for an Italian Christmas cookie si!!

VP said...

Mozzicato is an Italian dialectal form for 'bitten', which seems to be perfect for this place!

Dianne said...

Now if I lived in Hartford ...you'd find me lined up right behind John. Looks delightful!

Nice to have a good local bakery for this time of year. Looks delish!

CaT said...

Such scrumptious-looking offerings: my waistline (wherever it's located) is grateful I don't live close enough to partake!! You can have my share Jack. Trusting you had a joy-filled Christmas with loved ones.
