Cranberry Pecan Bread

Bread fans everywhere wait all year long for this bread! It is a magic combination of our tangy sourdough, crunchy toasted pecans, and chewy dried cranberries. Available everyday in December. Get a taste before it's gone until next year!

Walnut Beigli

A Christmas staple in every house in Hungary, beigli (bay-glee) is a yeasted butter dough rolled up with a sweet walnut filling. Our test batches flew off the shelves last year. Stop in and ask for a taste and you'll know why. Available everyday in December at Zingerman's Bakehouse and Delicatessen only.
