Give the gift of a Flying Pig cheesecake
Flying Pig has expanded its product line and added cookies, as well as some great new cheesecake flavors.
Some of the new cheesecakes from the San Antonio bakery are White Chocolate Truffle, rich, creamy white chocolate with an overlay of orange liqueur; Fireside Dream, bright cranberries, a subtle hint of orange and the elegant smoothness of white chocolate; Dia de los Muertos, Mexican dark chocolate, cinnamon, and smokey chipotle; Heavenly Harvest, with pumpkin, honey, and perfect spices; the Lodge, a flavor to make you think of mulled apple cider and the scent of juniper as you sit on the porch of a mountain lodge.
The new cookies come in some of the cheesecake flavors, but also flavors all their own. Ask for Mango Tango, Fire Island, Dia de los Muertos, The Lodge, Fireside Dream, German Chocolate, Turtlelly Awesome, and Tranquility, as well as Molasses and Peanut Butter flavors.
All cheesecake orders can be made with low-fat cream cheese upon request. Call 210-844-8458 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and delivery costs.

Cookies, pies and buche de Noël at Marioli
At Marioli, 18730 Tuscany Stone, chef Mariana Oliver has created an expansive holiday dessert repertoire.
The international array of cookies, sweet breads, pies, brownies and puddings is designed to appeal to any taste, no matter the country of origin.
Garibaldi pastries, for example, are a mainstay at the Stone Oak eatery.
“These are traditional sweet breads of Mexico and are often served with café de leche,” she says. “This is something that you find all over Mexico City and the rest of the country.” The shape of the dessert resembles the hat worn by the Italian freedom fighter Giuseppe Garibaldi who was dubbed the “hero of two worlds” in recognition of his military exploits in South America and Europe.
There are also Mariposa cookies, slathered with apricot or raspberry jelly between two shortbread layers that have been drizzled with chocolate as well as brownie triangles encrusted with peppermint crunches.
Also for the season is the buche de Noël, or yule log, served at Christmas in France and Belgium. Miniature pecan pies, flan, cupcakes filled with tres leches and drizzled with sweet cream, and more are available.
Marioli is open 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, 10:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Thursday-Satruday and noon-8 p.m. Sunday. Call 210-496-1111 or visit www.marioli2go.com.
