The holidays are synonymous with treats, but if you’re looking to up your game, consider the cookies from Sweet Lisa’s Exquisite Cakes, started by Chef and Owner Lisa Maronian, who is a mainstay in the area for 28 years, first in Greenwich, CT, and now in Cos Cob, CT. While Maronian and her team make gorgeous cakes and cupcakes, the cookies are particularly special this time of year.

“Cookies are so versatile and fun, they can be used as a tasty place card for a holiday table, given as a gift or put in a stocking for a yummy surprise,” says Maronian. Along with sugar cookies, you’ll find gingerbread cookies and houses. “Sweet Lisa’s focuses on producing sweets with an artist’s eye and chef’s palette,” she says. “All of our beautiful treats taste as good as they look!”
