Holiday Baked Goods?
I've made the rounds of all the supermarkets, so I know what's there, but I am wondering if there are delicious Christmas (or Eid, Kwanzaa, Festivus, or even leftover Hanukkah) seasonal baked goods tucked away in bakeries or restaurants around town. In my experience, nearly every baker has some good solstice-food tucked up his or her sleeve. I'm hoping that some bakery where I have not had luck with the normal fare will have something interesting to entice me in this season.
Upper Crust Bakery is selling stollen for the holidays. The version that's enclosed in a plain plastic bag costs $11.95. One that's wrapped in festive green or red cellophane will cost you $14.95. I have yet to taste it, but I thought this sweet German Christmas bread might interest you, given your chow handle.
Enoteca is selling bags of Italian cookies and pistachio brittle that were recently a HUGE hit at our Christmas party.
