New Bakery Specials

In Our Bakery:

The Butter Cookies have transformed! These now hold the shape of either a pumpkin or a maple leaf; they are adorned with decorative sprinkles, and are still the same great price of $1.50.

In addition to the Glazed Pecans, we have new Candied Cashews and Candied Almonds (one size only, 8 oz. for $5.99). Both are glazed with agave, and the almonds have a hint of cinnamon and cardamom as well. Mix and match them to create your own unique holiday nut mix. Who needs a catalog?

And our tour-de-force, an epic concoction of compact sweetness: A layer of homemade Maple Cream-Cheese, sandwiched between two Pumpkin cookies. More decadence than you can fit in a single bite.

This whole week we'll begin taking orders for Thanksgiving pies and confections, so call in and place your order now!
