Visions of Sugarplums Sweeten the Weekend
Third annual cookie tour hits Black Mountain

Caramel Pecan Sticky Bun Cookies
Among the popular sights, sounds and smells of the holidays, enjoying a freshly baked Christmas cookie in a comfortable chair surrounded by the splendor of holiday decorations has got to at least hit the top five.

This weekend, join five B&Bs in nearby Black Mountain to celebrate the season with warm cookies and festive decor. The third annual "Visions of Sugarplums" Christmas Cookie Tour will be held on Saturday and Sunday, December 14 and 15, from 2-4 p.m.

Guests at any of the participating inns may experience the self-guided tour free of change. Tickets may be also purchased at the Black Mountain Visitor Center and, in addition to holiday sights and sweet treats, also include a “Shop Black Mountain” bag full of coupons and discounts for local merchants, restaurants, and services and  a cookie recipe booklet for your own holiday baking.

Can't make it this weekend? Join in on the cheer by baking a batch of these Caramel Pecan Sticky Bun Cookies, which the innkeepers at Red Rocker Inn have whipped up for previous tours.
