With so many people paying attention to food allergens, especially families with a member who has nut allergies, there’s sweet news from one local Wilton business.

The Painted Cookie, which already prides itself on being a nut-free cookie bakery, is adding nut-free ice cream from a la mode Ice Cream to its offerings. “What goes great with cookies? Ice Cream of course,” says owner Susan Schmitt. She’s got a cooler full of flavors, and will be gradually adding more to the ice cream product line, like pints and dairy free vanilla ice cream to scoop. The ice cream is also egg- and sesame-free.

The addition joins the other items that Schmitt is now baking on-site, including vegan biscotti in various flavors as well as some gluten free options.

The Painted Cookie is located at 196 Danbury Rd..
