This is a loaf of Maison Kayser's Pain d'épices ($5), outfitted in a simple glaze and sized for one. The crumb is much lighter and softer than the classic, but no less rich in flavors with all the warm winter notes of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. I like to devour it by the thick slice with plenty of fresh, softly whipped cream on the side. Kayser also recently introduced a set of petit fours exclusive to NYC; keep your eyes out for the little tartlets in yuzu, chocolate, lemon meringue, and raspberry-almond.
