Think outside the box for dessert with sweet confections from two of Chicago's best bakeries.
Baker Miller puts a wholegrain spin on bars, cookies, and other pastries.
With the approach of the holidays, two of Chicago’s top bakeries are offering sweet alternatives to typical seasonal desserts. Logan Square’s Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits (2051 N. California Ave., 773-276-8888) puts a creative twist on the classics with pies like sage pumpkin seed brittle, apple crumble with salted rosemary caramel, and pecan with gooey chocolate.
And at Lincoln Square’s Baker Miller (4610 N. Western Ave., 312-208-5639), sweets lovers will find a variety of confections, including frozen take-and-bake buttermilk biscuits and sourdough cinnamon rolls; custom cookie tins featuring butter cookies made with butter cultured in-house and Russian tea balls crafted with freshly milled soft pastry flour; and a butterscotch pie filled with a from-scratch whiskey and smoked salt butterscotch custard and topped with a house-made oatmeal cookie crust.
