SFoodie Advent Calendar, Day 13: Cookies and More Cookies!
|Destination Bakery's gingerbread girl.|
That's not to say that local bakeries abstain from doing Christmas cookies. Oh, no.
For example, Glen Park's Destination Baking Co. (598 Chenery, 469-0730) is making individual gingerbread boys and girls like the one above ― soft and gingery ― as well as Christmas cookie plates with things like meringue stars and jam thumbprints. Stop by to take a look at the sample plate on the counter, and try to resist the urge to swipe it when they're not looking.
