Best Pastry Shop: Kiedrowski's Bakery
A MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH DELIGHT that tastes even sweeter when the Cleveland Browns are winning, the original dawg bone cookie by Kiedrowski’s Bakery is a true Cleveland staple. Inspiration for the dog-bone-shaped treat struck owner Tim Kiedrowski’s son Mark during the 1985 season when Browns player Hanford Dixon began barking at other players, kicking off the dawg craze in Cleveland. “I’ve lived and breathed the Browns all my life,” says Tim, adding that he still remembers when the Browns won the NFL Championship in 1964. The dawg bones are made from vanilla English shortbread, covered in orange, brown or white frosting and dotted with sprinkles. With about 1,000 to 2,000 mouthwatering cookies prepared each football season, Kiedrowski’s scores with customers.
