Sweet treats from the east

By Olivia Fowler

For the Courier

I have a friend who introduced me to Charleston Chewies. I’d been  eating them for some time at covered dish events before finding out what they’re called, and I must say they’re unforgettable.

All these desserts have place names, although I’m not sure they originated in the places whose names they bear.

Anyway, they’re all good, not too time-consuming to make and well

worth the effort. Yes, they are all sweet and probably packed with calories. But just remember, moderation in all things. You don’t have to eat the whole thing at one sitting. Enjoy.
