Sweets, and Savories, to Celebrate the Snake

In lieu of contributing to the ubiquitous stream of edible year-end holiday gifts, this year I baked and sent goodies to key Keith Barraclough Photography clients for the Chinese New Year, which began February 10: the year of the snake.

Packaged in a Chinese takeout container (I’ve featured this edible-gift packaging idea before in a summer post on red-wine ice cream), the sampler of six sweets and one savory snack met my criteria of shippability and offering a little something for every palate.

Belgian almond cookie
Bourbon pecans
Chocolate chip cookie
Oatmeal lace cookie

Sour lemon squares
Turtle brownies
