By Carole Bernard

As the busy holiday season looms, a timesaver is as welcome as a foot massage after a day at the mall. The little elves at South Church are busy and can help you cross cookies off your to-do list!
At the annual Cookies by the Pound sale this year, you can satisfy your sweet tooth, be prepared with a short-notice hostess gift, or simply provide a baked-from-scratch dessert for the family. A wide variety of sweets will be available, from crunchy to soft, with or without nuts, as well as a selection of gluten free treats! 

Made from scratch with attention to detail, including taste and appearance, cookies sold at this annual event are eagerly anticipated. Offerings are well-organized, beautifully displayed and carefully priced to sell. Since the event has gained a loyal (and hungry) following, shoppers are encouraged to arrive early, since the cookie collection typically sells out quickly.  Every year, the baking elves are placed under more pressure to produce in order to meet the rising demand.
On Saturday, Dec. 9, from 9 a.m. to noon (or until the cookies disappear), Cookies by the Pound will be held at South Church, 242 Salmon Brook Street. For further information, check out the website at Proceeds from the cookie sale go to support the mission of the church, including local, regional, national and international projects.
