The holidays are a magical time of year – made even more special by tasty traditions. From decorating gingerbread houses with young cousins, to sipping on peppermint hot cocoa while singing classic carols, to remembering grandma by baking her famous pecan pie, no celebration is complete without a festive treat. That’s why we created this state-by-state guide to the best holiday desserts across the country.

Whether you prefer to make merry with year-round staples like frosted sugar cookies and cinnamon rolls, or regional favorites like Indiana’s sugar cream pie and New Mexico’s “biscochito” cookies – there’s something on this list for every holiday dessert lover. Some spots, like Arizona’s Fairytale Brownies or Wisconsin’s O&H Danish Bakeryeven ship their sweets nationwide. Keep scrolling to find your new favorite way to celebrate the holidays.

Methodology: This is an all-time list of the top bakeries for the holidays in each state according to Yelp. We identified businesses in the bakeries categories on Yelp with a large concentration of reviews mentioning “holidays,” then ranked those spots using a number of factors, including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning “holidays.” This list looked at businesses in the US.  All businesses were marked open on Yelp as of November 28, 2023. When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score as of November 28, 2023. `
