Sweet tooth

One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is arranging platers with sweets and cookies… Nuts and dried fruits… My father made this wooden carved tray, by the way. He is a retired carpenter. We were only 4 people for the holidays this year so the assortment was not huge. Some of the…
