Plot Synopsis

UNIQUE SWEETS travels across America -- from New York City and Chicago to Seattle and San Francisco -- to find eateries and bakeries with novel sweets. Each 30-minute episode features a single type of pastry: pies; breakfast sweets; cakes; updated classics; cookies; and childhood favorites. Just how different are these pastries? The program samples pie-on-a-stick, a warm slice of brioche sweetened with almond paste and homemade almond syrup, a Meyer Lemon Shaker Pie, snickerdoodle "cookie pizza," and caramel apples dipped in cookie crumbs. In October 2012, the show's third season opened with a trip to Brooklyn to find the best donut, ice cream, cookies and cake New York has to offer, followed by episodes that highlight kids' treats and sweets that best accompany a cup of coffee. UNIQUE SWEETS returned for its fifth season on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on Cooking Channel. The season opener, "Austin Sweet Freeze," heads to Cow Tipping Creamery, where Corey Sorensen is making stackers, her layered version of a sundae; Dolce Neve, where customers savor Italian gelato made with in-season Texas produce; and Sweet Ritual, which serves a vegan ice cream that has all the creaminess and flavor without the animal byproducts. Season 6 of UNIQUE SWEETS premiered on Sunday, October 11, 2015 at 10pm ET/7pm PT. The season opener, "Surf, Sun and Sweet" heads to Hawaii, which is more than just pristine beaches: it's also home to some incredible sweet treats. Lee Anne Wong serves sweet brunch specialties at Koko Head Cafe, while Via Gelato blends Hawaiian flavors with Italian techniques to make innovative frozen sweets. And renowned Vietnamese restaurant The Pig and the Lady serves out-of-the-box creations at their dessert bar.
Season 7 of UNIQUE SWEETS premiered on Sunday November 13, 2016 at 10pm ET/7pm PT on Cooking Channel. The season opener, "Sweet Twists on American Classics," features special spots putting sweet spins on American classics. The Doughnut Project in New York City offers savory-meets-sweet doughnuts, including a doughnut crossed with an everything bagel, and a chocolate cream doughnut flavored with bone marrow. In Miami, Sweetness Bake Shop gives childhood favorites tropical Latin twists, like a cinnamon-spice doughnut filled with dulce de leche and topped in chocolate frosting and a crispy churro. At The Dirty Cookie in Tustin, CA, milk and cookies combine in edible cookie shot glasses.
