Baking, like raising children, requires whole milk, gentle hands, and knowing how much chocolate is too much. Give dessert a sweet upbringing with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get a dozen homestyle chocolate-chip cookies (a $12.50 value) at Sweet Cheeks in Holly Springs.
From the homey confines of their residential bakery, Sweet Cheeks's pastry professionals construct crumbling chocolate-chip cookies using only high-quality raw materials. Sweet Cheeks's bakery bouncers keep track of the kitchen's exclusive guest list, admitting ingredient VIPs such as whole eggs and real vanilla extract while denying freshness offenders, including artificial preservatives, slippery hydrogenated oils, and fossilized cinnamon sticks. Each chocolate-dappled batch of mirthful morsels pops from the oven with a dozen ready-to-much members, supplying patrons with enough dessert ammo to satisfy sweet teeth or bribe the starting lineups of opposing basketball teams. Because all of Sweet Cheeks' creations are crafted on-site, dessert seekers should call ahead to schedule fresh-baked batches.

There's an artful touch in Jackie Green's baking hand. She's fond of the process, of finding the right ingredients and making cakes that crumble with Southern-style deliciousness. She's been baking since she was a young girl, and her family tradition taught her to eschew preservatives and hydrogenated oils to keep her recipes as flavorful as possible. Her specialty? Iced butter pound cake topped with pecans and a cream-cheese glaze. As the consummate small-business owner, Jackie blends managerial expertise with her baking talent; you might see her dispensing samples of her cupcakes, brownies, or cookies at local markets. This consistent professionalism helped Jackie earn the title of Best Bakery from the Holly Springs Sun in 2010.
