Cookies from Missouri Baking Co. on the Hill are the best holiday treat
Each winter holiday season, Missouri Baking Co. sells 5 to 6 tons of cookies – that’s 10,000 to 12,000 pounds of colorful deliciousness. Butter cookies and Mediterranean macaroons topped with candied cherries, Christmas-colored wreath cookies, and green-topped cocoa mints add extra holiday flair to your Christmas cookie box. Be sure to grab a few cuccidati, a traditional Italian cookie filled with a moist, gooey fig mixture studded with raisins, pine nuts, chocolate chips and a little orange zest. According to owners and siblings Mimi Lordo and Chris Gambaro, they can hardly keep them in stock during the holidays. Don’t let yours get away.
