Flaky! Buttery! Biscuits!

Is there anything else that needs to be said? Using a recipe from the same 1944 Betty Crocker Blue Ribbon cookbook my mom used, these biscuits are a dream, tender, delicate and made entirely by hand! These are great with your morning coffee, or your lunch salad or with dinner, Chicken and biscuits anyone? And for only $2 each, where is the risk? Just make sure to show up early to the market because these treats sell out quick!

Spring has Sprung?

I may be rushing the season a bit but the Bay Area weather can be so confusing, Ive decided to go with it. And in light of my decided season change I have phased out the Heirloom Pumpkin pie and the Oh So Sweet Potato pie and ushered in a Lemon Chess Pie! (no worries, Pumpkin and Sweet Potato will be back next September) Lemon Chess Pie is a baked custard style pie originating in the South. The story behind the ‘chess’ name goes that when ask what was in the oven that smelled so good, the baker replied “jus’ pie!”. Organic eggs and raw organic milk make up the filling, along with hand-zested and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Tart and sweet with a silky texture, its everything you could ever want in a pie. Try a slice, it’ll be nice, don’ think thrice!

Sourcing ingredients through the Marin Civic Center Farmers Market!

Little Ladybug Bakery prides itself on offering the best-tasting, freshest scratch-made pies in the Bay Area. By creating relationships with local farmers, we are able to fill the pies and cookies with the freshest ingredients available. On Sundays you can find me darting away from my booth to check out my favorite farmers booths. I pick through apples or peaches or walnuts or organic eggs or rhubarb or blackberries to find what looks best. By sourcing locally and seasonally, Little Ladybug is able to offer to you a delicious tasting and thoughtfully made baked good.

The holidays are coming! The holidays are coming! Don’t be caught pie-less!

Little Ladybug Bakery is really ramping up production to make sure that you won’t be caught without a pie for this holiday season! Little Ladybug Pies are perfect for any gathering or party. Why are the pies and cookies so great you ask? Well, let me tell you! These amazing confections are all hand-made from scratch. That means we peel the apples, roast the sweet potatoes and mix the butter into the flour to make the pie dough. Little Ladybug believes in small batch baking, taking the time to focus on hand crafting each and every beautiful and tasty dessert for you. Come taste flavors you thought were lost to the memories of your childhood. Order your pie for Thanksgiving, Christmas or for the office holiday party now! Delivery options are available with large orders.

Welcome to the new Little Ladybug Bakery website! Isn’t it just the most? To say the least?!

Thank you for visiting the new Little Ladybug website! I am so excited be present on the internet as well as in the Bay Area. It has been a wonderfully long and interesting process. From deciding to start a pie bakery and applying to farmers markets to developing wholesale accounts, to creating relationships with local farmers so I carry only the freshest of ingredients in my pies. And now, having a virtual storefront!! I am so thankful for all the support and encouragement I have received from everyone who stops by my pie booth to satisfy their baked good needs. I currently participate in three farmers markets with my eye on the prize of opening my own stone and mortar storefront in Oakland. My plans are for a beautiful small bakery with an open kitchen in back so you can see the pastry magic being made. It will be the perfect place to swing by and grab a delicious dessert for dinner or to enjoy a slice of pie in while sitting by the window sipping a cup of loose leaf tea. Every pie and cookie purchased now is helping Little Ladybug achieve this lovely dream. So while we wait for the literal storefront to be funded and built, you have my pie table three times a week at the markets and THIS awesome website! Enjoy, poke around, pre-order some pies! If you have a special flavor pie in mind shoot me an email, I’m sure I can make it happen for you!
