I searched but didn't find any posts about this pop-up bakery.

This is a bimonthly pop-up bake sale at Brimmer and Heeltap. The baker is Laura Pyles, who was the pastry chef at Revel and Joule, and who created the desserts at Brimmer and Heeltap.

We went this morning and bought a potato-chip brownie, a peanut-butter/spent grains cookie with cherry buttercream filling, and a rhubarb-cream-cheese Danish.

The brownie was more like fudge. We were ok with that, but it's something to keep in mind if you like more of a cakey brownie.

Peanut butter cookie was fine, though hard to eat as a sandwich cookie, because the cookies were thick and chewy and the filling kept squishing out with each bite. We ended up pulling apart the halves and eating it that way.

The best item was the Danish. It was still warm, and rhubarb was just the perfect tart counterpoint to the cheese and the pastry. It made me sad for all the times I've eaten a Danish that wasn't as good as this one was.

They also had small bundt cakes, lemon pound cake bites, and various sweet breads (I can't remember the flavors) as well as some savory pastries.

Also, Slate (the coffee shop across the street) has is cool with bringing in Parchment pastries and buying coffee at Slate, which is what we ended up doing.

Anybody else been? Any suggestions to try the next time?

  1. We made a second visit to Parchment yesterday. We got a blueberry Danish, a savory potato and green onion puff pastry, a peanut butter/banana/bacon mini cupcake, and miso chocolate pudding cupcake.

    My favorites were the savory puff pastry and the miso chocolate pudding cupcake. A lot of the treats mix sweet and savory flavors, and I thought the miso was just the right amount of saltiness and savoriness to a rich and decadent treat.

    Other treats spotted there: lemon lime cupcakes, croissants, and waffles.
