Carol Hirschi will be back this Sunday with a new story to tell!
In the 1700s, cookies were endowed with… almost-mystical powers. For example: If you ate a lion cookie, you might become brave. If you ate a baby cookie, you might become pregnant…
The cookie you see pictured below is called “The Husband Tree.”
It depicts women perched beneath a tree full of men hanging like fruit.
Supposedly, if you ate this cookie, you would find love – or a husband!
It was the Match.com of the 1700s!
Get offline and eat a cookie to find love!
The Husband Tree is available at the Sunday morning farmers market. You can get them in ‘spice’ or ‘lemon’ – painted or not painted. The Husband Tree cookie is on special this weekend for $2.50 unpainted and $3.00 painted this Sunday.
Try pairing a spice cookie with some quality coffee from “Wicked Voodoo Espresso”.
True love may be just around the corner!
