Libby & Laura!

Good morning, Happy Tuesday! I got my butt kicked last night at Barre Bee Fit. I was planning on going again this morning but I couldn’t get up. Oh well… I’m going to shoot for the Thursday morning class. 

Last Friday I received a wonderful package from Laura (pictured on the right), owner of Libby & Laura a boutique bakery. Laura makes the most delicious mandel bread on the planet!

For those of you who don’t know (or didn’t read my previous mandel bread post), mandel bread or mandelbrot is a Jewish desert cookie, similar to a biscotti. Typically, mandel bread is twice baked but Libby & Laura take pride in their once baked mandel bread that has been passed down from generation to generation.

Laura was sweet enough to send me a package of her handmade mandel bread to sample!
White chcocolate, cranberry, and pistachio mandel bread Their best seller!
Laura even wrote me a handwritten card!!!
love the white chocolate chunks!
I fell in love with the mandel bread. It was chewy, soft, sweet, melt in your mouth amazing goodness. As many of you know sweet treats are my biggest weakness so of course I feasted on the mandel bread all day on Friday. Everything in moderation!
My co-workers loved it as well saying that it had the perfect balance of flavors and it was not too sweet. I also liked how the mandel bread is cut into bite sized pieces. Perfect for on the go or for sharing :-)
Libby & Laura’s mandel bread is all natural, no preservatives, non-dairy, and Kosher! They currently have three flavors, Chocolate, Double Chocolate Almond Pecan and their best selling White Chocolate Cranberry Pistachio.
Find their mandel bread at Garden Fresh Market in Northbrook, IL. Stop by on Fridays and Sundays from 10:30am-1:30pm to try a FREE sample! Also, look out for their Hannukah packaging, coming soon!
*Special thanks to Laura for sending me her amazing mandel bread.
Have a great day!


  1. I also LOVE Libby and Laura mandel bread! The soft texture is delicious and rare to find in mandel bread. Laura is such a sweet person and it's beautiful to see her follow her dream of starting the company. Thanks for sharing!
