Texas Hill Country Bakeries Fulfilling Your Christmas Fantasies

By  | 


Those of you looking for sweet treats this Christmas and New Year’s will often rely on the great skills of your granny, your mama, or maybe even try your hand at it yourself. But those of you who rely on professional bakers and bakeries to get you by, need look no further than a few of our favorites in the Texas Hill Country.

From batches of cookies to cakes, pies, and many special custom orders, these bakeries are turning out top-of-the-line sweet treats for you and your family to share over the holidays. Sweetish Hill Bakery is first to be featured, including details on their offerings (and did you know they served lunch items, so you can eat there when you order?), followed by the Fredericksburg Pie Company. Known for more than just phenomenal pies, they also make a number of tasty treats your mouth will water over!

Next up is Pennington’s Cakes in San Marcos, which is celebrating over five decades in business. They definitely know their cakes! Baked fresh-to-order, they do many special occasion cakes, and the holidays are no exception. Shared on the TexasHillCountry Youtube channel, this video will definitely tempt your taste buds and get your grocery list started!

The spread of options that each of these bakeries can produce for your friends or family (or yourself, if you’re so inclined) is amazing. They do traditional gingerbread offerings, special cupcakes, a great pie selection for your dessert needs, and so much more! Bakers can even turn a chore (your list of things to do, such as make 15 dozen cookies for an upcoming exchange) a walk in the park, and take the pressure off of you for the holidays. There’s no need to be an expert at something you perhaps don’t excel in, but rather enjoy taste-testing when there are great bakeries such as these right in your neighborhood! These are just a few of the wonderful and welcoming bakeries in the Texas Hill Country. We’re sure some of you have your favorites. Let us know who you turn to in fulfilling your sweet tooth’s Christmas fantasies! And happy cookie sampling!
