Fall Desserts Featured in the Journal News

The Journal News featured our delicious fall desserts in their New In Town section. The feature had some great things to say about our collection of Fall Pies (in particular our Pumpkin Cheese Pie), our new Pumpkin Cupcakes and our classic Apple Berry Crisp which are perfect for Thanksgiving and the holidays. Here is a sampling of what they had to say:

The Pumpkin Cheese Pie, which has a layer of pumpkin and a layer of cheese in pie form, is out of this word… And we love the Apple Berry Crisp, which has a shortbread crust is made with apples, blueberries, cranberries, then topped with a cinnamon sugar streusel with caramel on top.

Stop by our bakery to pick up one of our gourmet fall desserts, perfect for Thanksgiving, or any day!
