Ready-Made Holiday Desserts—and a Photo with Santa!

By Paula Detwiller

The holiday are here, and the days are flying by faster than Santa’s reindeer. Between the decorating, gift-shopping, family visits, and general merry-making, you may run out of time for holiday baking.

No problem! The Delray GreenMarket has an enticing array of homemade treats and desserts, perfect for holiday entertaining:

  • Pick up a sweet-and-tangy Key Lime Pie from Winnie’s Fine Baked Goods, or order one for a future event. She also makes homemade Apple Pie, Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, Classic Pecan Pie, or Pumpkin Pie. These are 13-inch, deep-dish beauties that can be delivered right to your door. Winnie also sells specialty breads, such as her signature Island Rum Mango bread, and mouthwatering holiday cookies.
  • Diane at the “Fun With Food” booth is also taking special orders for the holidays, for items such as her soufflé cake stuffed with whipped-cream-and-fruit or chocolate mousse. Diane also has gluten-free chocolate chip cookies or chocolate coconut macaroons, as well as Sweet and Savory Pecans baked with pure maple syrup and mixed with craisins, chili pepper, ginger and nutmeg. Great for cocktail-hour munching!
  • How about an authentic French tart for the holidays? You’ll find them with a variety of delicious fruit fillings at Le Petit Pain Bakery’s booth.
  • And lest we forget our furry friends, Stacey at Tweedle Pet Products offers homemade, all-natural almond-flavored dog cookies in Christmas and Hanukkah shapes. She also grows her own organic catnip for the felines. Both make thoughtful hostess gifts for animal lovers!
