Felizsta = "Feliz" + "Fiesta" (Happy Party!)

We are a husband-wife duo wishing to make Mexican cookies 'mainstream.'
A lot of people ask 'What makes a Mexican cookie?'
Mexican cookies, also known as 'biscochitos' 'pan de polvo' 'polvorones' or 'mexican wedding cookies' may have lots of different names but all share the same rich cultural tradition.
They are petite in size and meant to be shared at social gatherings for a small, sweet bite to compliment your coffee, tea or craving.
Our Relation to Celebrity Cake Shop
Yes, we are related (daughter and son-in-law) to Celebrity Cake Shop and inherited their recipes. For those that do not know, Celebrity Cake Shop was a panaderia located in McAllen, TX, which successfully stayed in business for 35+ years! It was (arguably) best known and beloved for its cakes, biscuits and famous Mexican cookies!!
We are now called Felizsta and under new ownership and management. We do not have a brick-and-mortar but would like to focus on small local markets and shipping until we can fully launch -- hopefully sometime in 2019!
You can also find us on the shelves at Kitchen 66 General Store located inside Mother Road Market in Tulsa, OK.
We thank for you for stopping by, learning about our craft and supporting our small, local business!
