Auntie Helen seems to be getting settled into her new life in Cupertino. She "found" L'epi d'Or Bakery (http://www.lepidorbakery.com/) walking distance from her home and shared some of the cookies with our tea yesterday afternoon.
Her favorite is the coffee-flavored butter cookie. I wanted more coffee intensity, still it's a good cookie. I preferred the walnut cookies, a thin and crisp icebox-type rectangle dotted with nuts. She gave me some of the bakery's sticky rice savories to take home.
