Holiday Sweets Across the USA-- Part 4: Moravian Christmas Cookies & Pralines


MORAVIAN CHRISTMAS COOKIES

Pennsylvania and North Carolina

Made with warm spices and molasses, these crisp wafers were originally brought to America by Moravian immigrants from Central Europe, who settled in Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
They're still a perennial holiday favorite made by Winkler Bakery in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

PRALINES

Louisiana

These New Orleans-style confections, made with brown sugar, cream and local pecans, are a Christmastime must in Louisiana.
