If baking isn’t exactly your thing, leave the holiday cookies to the experts this year and instead, visit these local bakeries before your cookie exchange. No one needs to be the wiser that your cookies didn’t come from your Beacon oven!

Owner and Chef Jessica Isaacs is directly involved in all aspects of its creative, culinary and business operations.
