Oak Park's newest pastry shop, Spilt Milk Pastry, opened its doors in October and in a few short months has become one of the hottest dining establishments in the entire Chicago area – that is according to Chicago Magazine's January Hot List.

The top-10 list highlights restaurants that "everyone's talking about and dining at (in order of heat)." Spilt Milk, 103 S. Oak Park Ave., was No. 8 on the list.

The list is short on details as to why restaurants received the honor of being declared "hot," but it does note that the bakery's "secret weapon" is its peanut butter chess pie.

Is your mouth watering yet? Well, it's just going to have to do that for the next few days; a sign on the door of Spilt Milk notes that not only are they sold out of pie, the shop is closed for the holidays through Jan. 8.

The buckwheat blueberry scone was tasty, but may have been taken out of the oven a little early as the inside was still wet. Good flavor, but when you pay 4.50 for one scone it needs to be really good. Hope it works on the Ave.

Their scones are the best I've ever had.
