Handmade Sweets with a Dash of Spice

If you're in need of some stocking stuffers, holiday hostess gifts or something to satisfy your sweet tooth, I highly recommend the tasty delights from Whimsy & Spice. The clever duo behind Sweet Find Day recently re-launched their website (and now offer ecommerce directly) for their delicious homemade sweets.
Thinking they would make great gifts for the holidays, I thought I would order a few bags for a trial run. Good excuse to indulge, isn't it?! I have been testing them out with my coffee in the morning and as dessert after dinner and must say they are some fine little cookies.

They offer small bags of cookies, biscotti, brownies and more. Or you can order gift boxes and try a variety of goodies. Their treats have a shelf life of 8 weeks but are best eaten within 5-10 days so keep that in mind when ordering.

My faves:

Pumpkin Ginger Sandwich Cookies
A creamy white chocolate filling, delicately spiked with white pepper is sandwiched between two spiced pumpkin ginger cookies dusted with sparkling sugar. Each 2" cookie is perfectly crisp on the outside, but cake-like on the inside.

Hazelnut Chocolate Whisky Sandwich
A bittersweet Scotch Whisky-infused Madagascar chocolate filling nestles between two cookies studded with ground hazelnuts and rich chocolate chips. Each cookie is 2.25 inches in diameter.
