No matter which way you spell it, we’ve got some yummy goodies to celebrate the festival of lights!

Decorated cookies- choose a hanukkiah, the nine-branched menorah, or your favorite dreidel letter.

And Chocolate Rugelah, flaky dough wrapped around chocolate sweetness. why, it’s like a tiny chocolate croissant ( it’s not, really, that was just my favorite recent description).

Starting now, Friday 11/30 and until supplies last, but i’m telling now—they don’t! Come in to the bakery and try your luck!

Stollen AZV 2017.JPG

Marzipan Stollen

It’s stollen! Nah, we made it here! It’s ridiculously delicious as a slice on its own, or toasted. Fruits and nuts in a dense dough with a layer of marzipan, all that goodness coated in powdered sugar. It keeps forever, if you able to resist from eating it for any amount of time: good luck!
