About Us

libbyssignLIBBYSCOOKIES.COM is a branch of Libby’s Italian Pastry Shop, a family owned and operated bakery located in the heart of New Haven, CT’s Little Italy- Wooster Street. The bakery, which was founded in 1922, is well known throughout the East Coast and beyond. Our staff receives many calls throughout the year asking if our cookies can be shipped. It is with great pleasure that we can finally answer YES!

Our motto, “Quality Plus Distinction” was created by Liberato and Guiseppina Dell’Amura when they opened their tiny bakery eighty-five years ago. Their tradition has been carried on by several generations of family members including their son and daughter, Fortunato Dell’Amura and Mae Defelice, Adele Dell’Amura, wife of Fortunato, granddaughters Jo-ann Dell’Amura, Dolores Dell’Amura, Marie D’Angelo, Leona Delcore and great grandson, Salvatore D’Angelo. Antonio D’Angelo, husband of Marie, also runs Cafe Villa Gina inside of the Bakery shop, named after their daughter, Gina D’Angelo-Mullen. Siblings Marc and Paul D’Angelo have also been known to pop in around the busy holiday season to help out. Our newest and sweetest additions to the family, Ava Mullen and Libby Ella D’Angelo, will soon enjoy the sugar cookies themselves!

All of our cookies are baked fresh daily in the Wooster Street location. Our famous sugar cookies are hand-decorated with the utmost care and attention to detail. When you place an order from our wide variety of products, you can rest assured that you will receive only the freshest, tastiest cookies possible. All orders will be polybagged, boxed and finally shrink-wrapped to ensure the same great taste you would receive if you walked into the bakery in person.

Throughout the four generations at Libby’s Italian Pastry Shop and now LIBBYSCOOKIES.COM, one thing has and will continue to remain constant- we deliver a great product that makes people smile.
