no. 1: moravian cookies
First up in 30 gifts/days/dollars, these Moravian Cookies. Named for the Moravian settlement in Winston-Salem, NC and made there, too, these things have got to be some kind of miracle of baking. They are so thin and so delicious, you really will be able to eat the entire tube. Gift set of 3 flavors (spice, sugar, and lemon), $27.99 at Salem Baking Co.
