Hot out of the Oven

Here’s What’s Baking
We’ve been baking like busy elves to keep our shelves stocked with holiday treats. Looking for a nice gift? Olive oil cake with slow-poached cranberries is a beauty to behold, 12 packs of maple pecan cookies look like a frosty bag of snowballs, and buttery stollen is wrapped and packed in a beautiful muslin bag – all are the perfect last-minute gift.

What’s more? All of the items are shippable!
Q: What do you get when you cross a key lime pie with spicy gingerbread cookies?

A: Gingersnap Lime Pie!
You won’t be disappointed with this one. Some have even called it the best key lime pie (even though it’s not really key lime!) they have ever had. We start with our spicy gingerbread dough to make a crumb crust and fill it with a sweet and tangy lime custard, then we use Valrhona white chocolate to make a rich and creamy whipped ganache, and finally garnish it with citrus zest. Available in-store and for pre-order.
Otherwise, we will have all of our usual suspects: croissants, muffins, scones, quiche, bread, sandwiches, and the always popular spicy tomato soup. Hope to see you this weekend!
