Today is a rainy, chilly Sunday morning in NE Connecticut. I remember as a child on days like today going for Sunday morning rides with the family to different bakeries for pastries, hot chocolate and coffee. There seem to have been many close-by with huge selections. Now there only a few with limited selection. I guess the bakeries are a casualty of the mega-supermarketing of America.
One of my favorie pastries as a kid was poppyseed hamantaschen which is now hard to find (plenty palces sell fruit-filled).
Can anyone recommend any old-time bakeries like I remember? Do any bakeries make poppy hamantaschen anymore?
