Bonjour, and welcome to Le Petit Croissant! My name is Leah, and I have a passion for French baking. I especially love baking for you, my customers!

The farmer’s market booth I have run since 2014 has given me on-the-spot, honest customer feedback about everything I make. Taste the difference that careful recipe development, premium ingredients, and meticulous preparation bring to:

  • 7 flavors of buttery, flaky, hand-rolled Croissants
  • 50+ addictive flavors of tricky Macarons
  • 18 big-flavor Jams
  • 5 flavors of fluffy Scones
  • 2 flavors of delicious Granola
  • My 16″ crispy Baguettes
  • And more — there’s always more!

To keep up with what’s new, please join my Facebook page at LePetitCroissantBakes.

Our Farmer’s Market booth runs Saturdays, mid-June to mid-October, at 7350 Pine Creek Road in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Check for dates and the Fall Festivals we also attend.

Do you enjoy learning, like we do? If yes, we also offer “Learn To Make Croissants” and “High Altitude Baking” and other classes for interested groups of 5-6 students. Please contact me at when social distancing is no longer necessary. Class reviews are amazing! In development: Video lessons!

We have received many inquiries about my award-winning cookbook, French Brunch At Home. Unfortunately, it is sold out, but don’t worry — I might write another one! With my expanded range of products and more sophisticated techniques, I am excited to think a new cookbook might have the same potential to be a winner.

And finally — Are you new to Colorado and struggling to bake at High Altitude? If yes, please consider joining our Facebook group, Baking 911: Tips, Fails, High Altitude Tricks.” As those of us who have moved from low altitude to high altitude can attest, high altitude can wreak havoc on your favorite recipes. This group is a great place to ask your craziest baking questions, since we’ve all “been there.”

Questions? Please feel free to contact Leah directly at, or by filling in the contact form on this site.

Thank you for stopping by. We hope to see you on-line, at the farmer’s market booth, or in a class sometime soon. Until then, stay safe, stay healthy, and bon app├ętit!
