Pint Size Bakery requires no introduction. Surely by now you've tasted one of its outstanding oatmeal cream pies. If for some reason you haven't had a chance to stop by, here are some examples of what you might find: savory scones dotted with local Canadian bacon from Todd Geisert Farms, cheddar jack cheese and thyme grown in whiskey barrels right outside the bakery; bacon caramel corn made with kernels from YellowTree Farm; brookies (brownies with a cookie in the center, a homage to Brooklyn's renowned bakeshop/cookbook bestsellers, Baked NYC); housemade syrups to flavor iced Kaldi's lattes; and whatever else mastermind Christy Augustin and her team of formally trained pastry chefs feel like whipping up. Pint Size bakes small batches in a tight space, but don't let the name mislead you: It has some big ideas and isn't afraid to pull them off.
