Nut Tartlets

Pictured here is our cranberry walnut tartlet, we take our homemade light and sweet tartlet shell and fill it with freshly diced cranberries, walnuts, and brown sugar! We also offer pear almond tartlets (pictured second), which we make by taking our homemade light and sweet tartlet shell, putting a thin layer of seedless raspberry jam and almond pastry cream, filling it with pear slices and topping it off with a sweet apricot glaze!

Pictured here are our cream cheese brownies, blondies (our popular cookie dough brownie), chocolate chip brownies, and raspberry oat and toasted coconut bars! We also offer tangy lemon squares, smore's brownies (homemade with a layer of graham cracker crust, followed by our fudge brownie, and topped with our toasted marshmellow), m&m brownies, mint chocolate brownies, and deliciously rich 7 layer bars with coconut, nuts, white and dark chocolate, and caramel.
