Favorite Shops: whimsy & spice

Ah, autumn—there's so much to love: It is season for the scarves & boots; orange foliage & crisp air, but better yet, it's the pumpkin, spices & delicious food season. And that has inspired me to search for Fall yummy-ness on Etsy some time ago.

Whimsy & Spice is a Brooklyn-based pastry shop that combines aromatic spices and unique flavors to bring you an unexpected cookie and Biscotti.

The husband & wife team Mark – a Pastry Chef and Jenna - an award-winning art director, designer and artist combine their skills and more than 12 years of experience in culinary arts and graphic design to produce a distinctive line of handmade sweets. All of their cookies and sweets are hand rolled, hand cut and hand packaged in Brooklyn, NY, using only the finest ingredients with no added preservatives or artificial flavorings.

How tempting are these Brown Sugar Gingerspice shortbread cookies? The texture of a shortbread cookie with the zing of a gingersnap is enhanced with the soft bite of cinnamon and touch of cloves. Oh my!

Pumpkin Ginger Sandwich Cookies: A creamy white chocolate filling, delicately spiked with white pepper is sandwiched between two spiced pumpkin ginger cookies dusted with sparkling sugar. Yum-yum!!
