  1. Great job. Tip if you bake a lot. I trained in Italy. I buy half gallon milk (or cream) and I put in a split vannila bean (or 2-3) and keep it in the fridge; the infused milk/cream when used in recipes that use both vannila and milk/cream takes the flavor to a whole new level.

  2. Thanks so much! I just discovered your videos looking for hoagie recipes. My Mom always made S cookies, but without the icing and were a big hit with the family. We also make the Anginetti iced lemon cookies.
