These 11 Bakeries In Delaware Make The Most Irresistible Desserts

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – cookie tray season! I grew up in a very Italian home, and right around the holidays, the cookie trays with Italian butter cookies and more started to roll in. To me, there’s nothing better than the chocolate-topped ones… or maybe the dipped cookies with sprinkles! Luckily, there are some incredible bakeries in Delaware, and I’ve never struggled to find a local spot to get my fix on homemade cookies, cakes, and desserts.

Check out some of the most incredible family-owned and local bakeries in Delaware, where you can grab your holiday cookie tray, an incredible occasion cake, a memorable cupcake, and even a loaf of homemade artisan bread. What a great state we live in, where all of these options are so close by!
