Holiday Treats From La Bonne Bouche

For your favorite sweet tooth or to give yourself a shot of Christmas spirit, check out master patissier Eric Regnier's ode to the holidays, a box of a dozen painstakingly hand-decorated butter cookies. The one- and two-bite morsels come as gaily bedecked Christmas trees, prettily wrapped gifts, crystalline blue and white snowflakes, and more, each one a bit of edible netsuke.
They're not cheap -- $18 per dozen -- but artisanal products rarely are. And ifyou've ever tasted the delicate, flaky croissants that bring even the swells from Palm Beach to funky downtown Lake Worth... well, 'nuff said.
