To represent the 12 Days of Christmas (which start the day after Christmas but I’m doing it earlier so you can give these as Christmas gifts), I’m showcasing 12 days of delicious artisanal food treats from the American South. These are hand-picked by me, Dina, because I’ve tried them and they are delicious.
Day 6, Winston-Salem, North Carolina: Salem Baking Company Moravian lemon cookies
During the holidays in North Carolina, Moravian cookies are a staple. They are a thin spice cookie baked by the Moravian people who founded Salem in 1766. I’m not the biggest fan of crispy cookies. However, my aunt told me about the lemon variety, and I can’t get enough of them. The Salem Baking Company has been baking Moravian cookies since 1930. The ones I have pictured are from Carolina Cupboard, a store selling North Carolina products in Hillsborough, North Carolina.
