During the holiday season, Crossroads’ most popular confections include harvest-themed pies like maple pumpkin, southern pecan, or cherry almond, plus ethnic favorites such as Italian Rum Cake or Ricotta Pie. You can also take your pick from an array of mouthwatering cookie varieties to assemble your own tray, including everything from Hazelnut Orange Biscotti to classic chocolate chip bites and sweet Italian Jam Cookies.

And after you taste one of the mix master’s oh-so-delicious Old-Fashioned Cake Doughnuts, fresh baked cakes, or brownies studded with cream cheese, the gluten tolerant will be hooked too. The Happy Mixer was even named the #1 GF Bakery in the state!
