Look At Them Sticky Buns

Pecan & Almond Sticky Buns

Happy New Year!

Pint Size is closing all next week 1-1-13 through 1-5-13, we will reopen on Tuesday 1-8-13 ready to face 2013 and get things started with some fun fresh flavors. Matt & Christy will be spending this time in NYC celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary & checking out a ton of great bakeries while we are at it.

2012 finished with a bang for us. The RFT listed our tiny little bakery as one of the top 10 best restaurants to open in STL this year! Even better they think our oatmeal creme pies are one of the top 10 best dishes of the whole year!!!!!! OMG we feel really special.

Chew on This

It’s all because of you folks, our super great customers…so THANK YOU for all your support & understanding during our first few months in business.

Tis The Season…

Hey there – look up there, that’s my family…well some of em – ain’t we cute:)

This blogging business has taken a back burner, but that’s cuz the fires have been burning at both ends at the bakery. We have been baking so very, very much that we killed 2 ovens – but they will be up and toasting before Christmas, just in time for your holiday orders. So check out the list below & stop by or call us asap for all your special sweetness.

Lots of great things have been happening – but you’ll just have to wait until we catch a breather before I update you. XOXO Christy

I Lurvs Me Some Fall

Fall is made for baking…cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg all just begging to be wrapped around some apples. The pic above is caramel corn…but not just some regular ole caramel corn – Missouri Organic Corn!

I went apple picking again this year with my family – we have gone every year since I can remember, but this year was especially fun that I could bring back all the beautiful apples to the bakery and stuff them into something divine.

We also have been intermittently making these sweet potato, caramelized onion and local bacon scones that I just can’t stop eating!

I’m telling you fall is where it’s at!!!

Pint Size is super excited about Halloween. We will be sitting outside with a fire and a basket full of gingerbread cookies just waiting for all the kiddies in costumes. Wanna stop by? Look for us from 6-8pm on 10-31-12, I’ll be the one in the furry tabby cat costume:)

Long Time…No Blog

What awesome weather we have been blessed with lately…I’m thinking of switching my daily brew from iced to steaming hot! Speaking of hot coffee, we have come up with an delish Fall Spice latte. Caramel syrup with local honey and tons of great pumpkin pie spices. We will be starting up hot chocolate production soon (beginning of October) and well, if I do say so myself, it is just the best hot chocolate in the world!!

Pint Size had a great write-up in the RFT…check it out here

There was also this super cool video gone viral that features a ton of local businesses, us included. Mos def wanna take a peek or two at this

Lastly, we are really excited to take part in Slow Food St Louis’ Art of Food this year. I have been privileged to be involved in quite a few Slow Food events over the years and they are all so much fun and more importantly such good food! See you Saturday

Okay, I guess one more ;-) Come see us at LinFest in Lindenwood Park on Saturday October 6th. The bakery will be open as well that day. We are planning on pumpkin cupcakes & decorated gingerbread cookies to start.

Pup Treats & Other News

Saturdays have become such a fast & fun day! We get sooo many doggie visitors on their morning walks that we have started baking up some pumpkin-whole wheat snacks for them too…we luv our furry friends & would even make kitty treats if the felines weren’t so picky. Trust us, I have 3 lil beasts at home that want no special treats other than straight meat!

Speaking of Saturdays…the Salted Caramel Croissants have been flying out the window. We can barely keep up! We make a limited number of them as well as cinnamon rolls & sticky buns each Saturday – the yeasty goodness starts coming out of the oven around 930am and lasts till about 1130-12noon. We are working on upping production…but handmade goodness in our tiny kitchen is hard work & there is a limit on what we can do each week.

So for those of you that have been missing out…we are sorry:(

We have been talking non-stop in the bakery about Fall & all the great flavors we can whip up…sweet potato, apple, gingerbread, oh my!

C U Soon!!
