For generations, Americans have loved sugary baked goods in convenient single-serving packages, but these days it's hard to reach for a Twinkie without feeling guilty knowing all of the preservatives keeping it "fresh." Thank goodness for Jet Black Bakery — a savior for your sweet tooth — baking classic treats out of organic, local ingredients.
"If you love coconut, get a caramelized coconut macaroon — they're absolutely heavenly."
Focusing on "rustic" baked goods, not high end pastries, Black Jet bakes desserts reminiscent of the ones you craved as a kid. Two not to miss highlights are the jam filled turnovers, which The Wall Street Journal proclaimed the pastry that "Pop-Tarts wishes they were;" and the Devil Dogs — thick vanilla frosting sandwiched between two moist bites of chocolate cake — which are leagues beyond the plastic-wrapped convenience store version.
