About Our Bakery

Over 32-years of dedicated experience in the confectionery arts.

Nice To Meet You

In 1985, Priscilla Moore began baking cheesecakes using a time-tested family recipe in her home near the village of Canadensis in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. She soon sought to convince local chefs to try her product and after receiving a thoroughly positive response, a business was born! After a few months, a retail outlet opened on Route 390 in Mountainhome, PA and within the first year, the response was so overwhelming that she decided to expand to the current location on Route 611 in Swiftwater. By 1994, after several additions, she more than doubled the original size of the baking and retail space.

In 2007, Priscilla decided to retire and asked her long time friends Al and Carole Johnson to carry on the tradition. They agreed and since then have been continuing to bake with the same heart and dedication.
