Nutella Baci di Giulietta (Juliet's Kisses) with their brilliantly colored sugar crystals? Not I. Not even when begged to, as I was for the photo shoot by KC Kratt for Buffalo Spree's November 2012 'Cheap Eats' issue.
November promises to be full of the sweet and the savory, with choices like the vegan pumpkin pecan cookies and maple agave cornbread muffins.
The knobby witch fingers with almond fingernails, were both morbid and delightful.
Gluten free options include double chocolate ganache brownies, snickerdoodles, and chocolate gateau with ganache and chestnut puree.
Bourbon Pecan and pumpkin pies, carrot tea cakes with cream cheese frosting, pumpkin bread with cranberries and apple cider glaze, currant shortbread, apple fritters, ginger bacon cookies (made with Spar's bacon), and molasses cookies overflow the cases.
Vegetarian and bacon lover versions of the savory winter vegetable pies with cabbage, potato, onion, bacon and cheddar will be available. You can special order your Thanksgiving pies now. There will also be old favorites year round, like the Biscotti and oatmeal raison cookies. Keep an eye out for more offerings as the year turns. Check out my Urbanspoons review on B. Ferrante's - Specialty Italian Cookies and Pastry.
