This blog post is for those of you who actively follow our Twitter and this blog. Since we're talking about the day to give Thanks, I want to thank each and every one of you by letting you in on a few secret menu items we have for this Thanksgiving. You won't find details of the following items anywhere else on our site - not even at our stores - so read on if you're interested in exclusive desserts!

You'll want to place an order in advance for these items, since they don't really exist for anyone else but you, our readers! :)

MINI PIES: Individual desserts are cuter, more elegant and less of a mess. If you agree, you'll love our Mini Pumpkin and Mini Pecan Pies.

Plus, you get more crust this way!

Sadly, these tiny pies (about 4" in diameter) aren't big enough to fit our apple or cherry fillings. Don't forget we do have Banana Cream Tarts though, inspired by our Banana Cream Pies (the tarts just use a different dough for the crust).

Now, my favorite Thanksgiving item: Cheesecake-filled Pumpkin Cupcakes. A few years ago, during a slow night at our Fremont store, I whipped up a batch and fell in love. I was only making them for friends and family, and occasionally for the stores when I had the time. Since this post is really to thank you, our reader, I'll definitely be sure to make time should you choose to order these. Besides, these are too good not to share.

A Pumpkin Cupcake (different from our traditional Pumpkin Cake that we've had for years - that one contains walnuts and cranberries) with just the right amount of pumpkin flavor and the perfect balance of fluffy and cakey. In the middle, you'll find a sweet surprise: a small layer of cheesecake filling.

Topped with our Orange Cream Cheese frosting for a perfect complimenting flavor.

So there they are, three products this Thanksgiving that no one else knows about. Thanks again for making the effort to stay up-to-date with us. Remember to place your orders in advance to guarantee these secret items or any of the items we bake. Hope you and your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
