La Patisserie Chouquette
(1626 Tower Grove Avenue; 314-932-7935)
The piece de resistance at Chouquette is the gingerbread house. You can buy a kit with all the trimmings or a pre-made masterpiece. There's hot cocoa, eggnog cheesecake, eggnog creme-filled choux and more. Owner Simone Faure is also offering a bevy of pre-made mixes perfect for gifts, like cookie mix, alcohol-free baking syrups and hand-blended spices. You can even drop off a letter to Santa -- maybe pick up some treats for him while you're there.
