Thanksgiving Breads Bakery (NYC)

Babka Pie, Pumpkin Rolls Maple Butter Glaze, Rye loaf caraway, citrus and raisins

One of our favorite bakeries in New York City, Breads Bakery has another great selection of breads and desserts for the Thanksgiving table.

The famous babka pie is always a favorite. Breads’ chocolate hazelnut babka pie is essentially the well known loaf shaped to fit a pie pan. It still retains the signature sweet, buttery, flaky babka filled with the chocolate hazelnut filling but there’s a little more crust or crispness as there’s more surface area exposure to the pan.

Dozen of Pumpkin rolls with maple butter glaze

The dozen pumpkin rolls with a maple butter glaze were wonderful subtly sweet rolls. It has a great density and chew and the pumpkin flavor is present without focusing heavily on spices. It’s a great alternative to the pecan rolls.

For those who want a more decadent dessert besides the babka pie, the pumpkin cheesecake is a good one. The creamy, dense pumpkin cheesecake is delicious and not too sweet. We liked, like the pumpkin rolls, it’s not heavily spiced with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg; just nuances to enhance the pumpkin flavor.
