Big week for sweets

Can you smell the delight of lovers of baked sweets? First, the Krispy-Kreme on Person Street in Raleigh, N.C. reopened June 1, after month-long renovations left seekers of “Hot Doughnuts Now” with the cold comfort of packaged goods.

And today, the doors opened at Scratch Baking in Durham, N.C. The long-desired permanent store at 111 Orange Street gives fans of baker Phoebe Lawless a place to get pies and doughnut muffins between her weekends at area farmers markets. The hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lawless’ pies aren’t your grandma’s pies. The pan-less pies have rustic crusts folded up around exotic fillings, which peek through the center like an open purse tempting a pickpocket. A dark chocolate-sea salt pie I got for a picnic last summer still sticks in the memory.
