Inspired by Austria’s rich culinary tradition, Austrian baker Heidi Riegler launched Vienna Cookie Company to offer baked goods that are authentic to Austria’s cultural origins. Vienna Cookie Company’s hand-baked cookies, freshly made with natural ingredients, are inspired by family recipes that have been passed down through generations. The cookies are great treasures of the Austrian cuisine.
My cookies are inspired by century old Austrian recipes and are a wonderful culinary delight. Whenever I make them, people love them. I am sure you will too. - Heidi Riegler, Your baker
Vienna Cookie Company’s repertoire includes the Austrian Linzer cookie filled with traditional raspberry jam and variants with lemon curd and apricot jam fillings. The original Vanilla Crescent cookie, which is rolled in Vanilla sugar, gets a twin dunked in dark chocolate. And the popular Viennese Chocolate Kisses, a delicious chocolate hazelnut cookie - nominated by The New York Times food columnist Melissa Clark as the winner of the WNYC Holiday Cookie Contest - is also offered with orange and brandy flavors.
Heidi Riegler is originally from Austria, a country that prides itself as the inventor of some of the most delicate desserts and baked goods. Known for its Apfestrudel, Sachertorte, Guggelhupf and its delicate holiday cookies, Austria is a dream come true for anyone with a sweet tooth. “Growing up in Austria exposed me in quite a natural way to baking,” says Heidi, who is self-taught and learned all her baking tricks from her mother and grandmother.
Heidi began her baking endeavor when friends and colleagues encouraged her to offer her cookies professionally. She started to serve her cookies at tasting events at food fairs and offers them on her website. A truly original brand, Vienna Cookie Company serves authentic Austrian cookies. All cookie recipes are family recipes passed on by Heidi’s mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. "My mom taught me everything I know about baking. All the recipes I use are from her collection."
To reflect Austria’s rich cultural heritage, Vienna Cookie Company's packaging design reflects Vienna's Wiener Werkstätte movement of the Fin-de-siècle with its rich pattern, Nouveau type setting and metallic color choices.
By offering freshly made, high quality products based on authentic recipes as well as creative variations to the traditional Austrian cookie, Vienna Cookie Company conveys the great quality of its product. The stylish Viennese packaging design adds to the overall quality, originality and classiness. It is the perfect gift for the holidays and special occasion.
