I gave you a little sneak peek at the goods from Schroeter’s Gluten Free Bakeshop in an earlier post, here is a more in depth look at the newest wholesale GF bakery on the block — right here in Milwaukee!
The whole Schroeter family eats gluten-free (even their dog!) and have for years. They set out to find recipes to replace their family favorites. And after years of experimenting, they are ready to share their creations with you.
We all need a basic chocolate chip cookie in our lives don’t we? And my dairy-free friends are going to want this one — not only GF, but DF too. (Dad Schroeter is dairy-free too) There is a hint of salt that balances out this sweet treat. A little twist on a traditional recipe. One that my girl Molly thought was just genius.
The same day I got my hands on these goodies, we had a dinner date out at the farm. (that’s where Molly came in) But she wasn’t the only taste-tester on the “panel.” This was serious business, so I called in an expert — you’ve seen my little buddy before here and here. He’s pretty much all grown up now and he knows his cookies.
Schroeter’s Bakeshop has a customer for life.
The cookie I am still thinking about today – and wishing I had more of right now - is the lemon sugar cookie. The butter flavor comes through in your first bite with a subtle taste of lemon.
This recipe would make one heck of a Christmas cut-out cookie! Hint, hint Schroeter fam. And no one would even guess that they are gluten-free. Let’s just say they went over well with our “raters.”
And last, but most definitely not least — the whoopie pies.
My husband reported these as his top pick. (so much so that when I went to take pictures of them, there was only one left) When you bite into them, the creamy frosting filling squishes out the sides a little. This means you are doing it right.
These fun little whoopie pies are gluten and dairy-free. And a crowed pleaser. The kind of dessert you could take to a party and then find the hostess in the kitchen licking the plate clean. That good.
Don’t you worry, I’m not keeping them all to myself. You can pick them up now at the Gluten-Free Trading Company’s Chase Avenue location in Milwaukee, or contact the bakery via their website – they aren’t a walk-in type bakery at this point, but I am sure we’ll be seeing their products at your neighborhood grocer soon. Better yet, ask your store manager to carry the products right now!
Things are just getting started for the Schroeter family, and I can’t wait to see what comes next — best of luck to you on this new adventure!
