We can’t get enough of the decorated cookies, like these from @empeckabledesserts. Almost too beautiful to eat!
This menorah-shaped challah from @leland_of_antioch is too stunning for words. Perfect for Hanukkah Shabbat or for any Hanukkah celebration. We are seriously impressed.
In the category of mouth-watering latkes, there are almost too many to name. But we’ll start with these super-crispy potato latkes topped with French yogurt from @drew.foods. Um, yes please.

And finally in the category of drool-inducing donuts is our new favorite Israeli bakery crush, The Showroom Bakehouse @theshowroombakehouse, located in Tel Aviv. They are pumping out all kinds of crazy sweet concoctions for Hanukkah including s’mores donuts and caramel popcorn donuts. We are in love.
Another Israeli banging out some killer donuts is chef Lior Maschiach @lioroooosh whose baked creations always have us wishing we lived just a smidge closer to Israel.
Over in Scotland @rabcooks is wowing us with these VEGAN Nutella sufganiyot. Can you ship some to New York please?
