celebrating NJ flavors, one small batch at a time...
LiLLiPiES is a small-batch bakery located in Princeton, NJ.
Because we bake our breads and sweets in small batches throughout the day with the utmost care, everything we sell is fresh and delicious. We use the best ingredients, including locally-sourced fruit, and always bake from scratch. Our breads are high-hydration sourdough and are fermented anywhere from 12-36 hours at a low temperature, yielding a complex and satisfying flavor.
So what on Earth is a LiLLiPiE? It all started with Jen's son, Sean who at the time was in Kindergarten. Kids in his class were encouraged to bring in a special treat to share with the class on their birthday. Some favorites were cupcakes, brownies, cookies. But Sean was a different kind of a kid. "Mom, I want to bring in apple pie!" "But Sean, pie is too messy to serve to your class. Wouldn't you like me to make some nice vanilla cupcakes? How about some chocolate chip cookies?" "No. I'd like pie." The cupcake tin was at the ready. Would it work? Hmmm... cake is to cupcake as pie is to... Well, let's give it a shot. So, yes. For Sean's 6th birthday apple pie was baked in a cupcake pan- and the LiLLiPiE was born.
