There are so many things to brag about when it comes to living in the Hudson Valley: the booming culinary scene, the proximity to New York City, and the farms and orchards that provide fresh, seasonal crops. After all, if you didn’t go apple picking in the fall, are you even a Westchesterite? One New York City bakery, however, wants to help you take such bragging rights to the next level.
Bake Me A Wish! dishes out a variety of holiday pies this season, and exclusively use apples that were grown right here in the Hudson Valley. You can send family and friends across the country a little taste of Westchester — and give them an incentive to visit you next fall. The bakery sports a catalog of apple concoctions, like a sweet and crumbly caramel apple cake and a bestselling classic apple pie. If the holiday stress gets the best of you and the dessert ordering falls through the cracks, Bake Me A Wish! even offers overnight and two-day shipping.

New York is the second-largest apple producer in the U.S., with 22 percent of the 28 million bushels produced annually statewide grown in the Hudson Valley. Bake Me a Wish!, founded in 2005, views the usage of only New York apples as a love letter and celebration of the state. And when someone across the country can enjoy a baked good made with something your little corner of the state is known for, there is an immediate sense of hometown pride. How about them apples?
