It all began nearly 40 years ago with an original French recipe. Don and Susie Morris (Don-Sue-Mor) introduced madeleines to their Berkeley, California community in 1976 deemed the “Gourmet Ghetto.” Respectively, the creative entrepreneur and the passionate baker crafted a treat unlike any other: a miniature, moist and delicate cake with a fresh, unforgettable taste.
Today in Alameda, the artisanal bakers at Donsuemor create a full line of madeleines and other elegant European-inspired desserts such as french almond cakes, biscotti, nonnettes, petits gateaux and the latest creations, the sablés. Donsuemor continues its tradition of crafting products inspired by the founders’ love of classic old world recipes baked with a craftsman’s attention to quality and detail.
An homage to Donsuemor’s heritage, The Sablé (pronounced Sah-blay) is perfection in its most simple form. A delicate round “sandy” cookie that is crunchy and crumbly in texture yet buttery and rich with flavor. Our Sablés come in two luscious flavors, classic Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Cinnamon. Experience that indescribable sense of comfort with every bite. Click here to find out more.
