Before  the  major-league  guilt  of  enjoying  the  sweet  treats  of  the  holiday  season  completely  overtakes you, come and enjoy the bounty of the Cookies by the Pound sale at South Congregational Church. Lovingly  made  by  hand,  with  incredible  attention  to  detail  and  the  best  of  ingredients,  the  variety  of flavors  and  appearances  will  instantly  bring  a  smile  to  your face.  The  elves  presenting  this  annual extravaganza have diligently worked to tempt the taste buds of even the harshest cookie critic. You’ll find gluten-free and nut-free options as well.

Do  you  know  someone  who  is  a  little  under  the  weather?  Welcoming  a  new  neighbor  to  the  area?  In need of a hostess gift? These cookies are appropriate for any occasion, and they come without the hassle of baking and cleaning up.

Pleasingly  presented  and  incredibly  tasty,  you  will  be  challenged  to  get  out  of  the  parking  lot  without dipping into the bags. You are encouraged to buy a couple of extras to make sure there are some cookies left for Santa. You are also urged to come  early, since this annual  event  has been  known to be “cleaned out” later in the day.

On Saturday, Dec. 12, from 9:30–11:30 a.m. (or until the cookies run out), Cookies by the Pound will be held  at  South  Church,  242  Salmon  Brook  Street  in  Fellowship  Hall.  For  further  information,  visit: Proceeds from the cookie sale support the mission of the church, including local, regional, national and international projects.
