Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, so it’s full of picnics, road races, festivals and other fun events to get the best season of the year off to a good start. If you’re planning to host a picnic or barbecue for family and friends, let Montgomery Bakehouse help you with some of the details. We’ve got loads of great options for finger foods and sweet treats that are perfect for outdoor entertaining. Here are some of our favorites for summer celebrations:
- Baklava:This delicious Greek pastry is perfect for a special occasion. Flaky filo dough is filled with honey and pecans for a decadent — and different — treat. Baklava triangles make perfect finger foods.
