Sweet Sunday

20121125-085953.jpg It is always so interesting to see what pattern develops over the gift buying season, and to see what stand-out items become best sellers. The chocolate enrobed Moravian cookies in the handsome tins have been a hit these last few weeks. Made by the family owned Salem Baking Company, which began in 1930, these cookies are not to be missed.

What I really like about this trio is they make great host/hostess gifts. Cookies become our jam replacement gift (which is a go-to most of the year) during the Holidays. It is also nice to have a few tubes handy for a quick dessert with coffee. Super simple, but still loved by all.
