3 Spots to Get Your Mitt(en)s on Delicious Sweets

‘Tis the season to enjoy great baked goods.


Hannah’s Kitchen


Local caterer Hannah Sattler is baking and frying up a storm for Hanukkah. Sattler offers latkes made with either russet or sweet potatoes, eaten with sour cream and applesauce, and traditional sufgoniyot (Israeli doughnuts) filled with jelly. This year, the doughnuts will also come in a different flavor each day. And to celebrate the customary gelt (money) given to children, Hannah’s is making chocolate coins painted gold.

Rocket Baby Bakery

6822 W. NORTH AVE. 

Alongside baguettes, sourdoughs and croissants, the Tosa bakery dips into the recipe archives to make German stollen and will have other special, more modern creations such as peppermint French silk pie and key lime cheesecake with gingersnap crust and vanilla bean white chocolate ganache.

Black Twig Bakery


The modern, minimalistic shell to this dessert shop makes everything inside the bakery counter pop, and with a particularly festive flair. Load up your order with cookie boxes (raspberry thumbprints, chocolate crinkles), cakesicles, “Big Macs” (supersize macarons), gingerbread house kits, and take-and-bake freezer cookies.
