Oh my goodness! I have many, many cookies ... more than I know what to do with... (bad grammar!)
Once a year my friend, Jackie, sends invites to her annual cookie exchange. We usually have it during the month of December, and we would get lots and lots of holiday cookies.
This year Jackie decided that the cookie exchange will happen around Halloween. The usual suspects were there, plus more. There were 17 participants this year. What fun!
Each one of us had to make 4 1/2 dozen cookies and some for tasting. I made my sugar cookie with Reeses peanut butter cup inside cookie... (well, that's what I call it for lack of a real name...) I put a little rounded teaspoon of sugar cookie dough into a mini muffin baking pan. Once the cookies are done, I put a peeled Reeses peanut butter cup in the middle of each cookie. This time I put a dollop of frosting and topped the cookies with some autumny sprinkles... This was my entry for the cookie exchange. I made 17 single plates of three cookies and brought a few loose ones for tasting.
Jacki "makes" us play games... We give her a hard time about this, but we actually enjoy all that she does... plus there are prizes for the winners! This time her games were all Halloween related,
There were two tables laden with various baking goodness. We taste all the cookies and vote for the best tasting. There is another prize here...
My entry and another one tied for first place. So there was a recount. The other entry won! I am sure it was because of the brandy in them cookies... Here is the baker of the winning entry modeling her prize.
Each one of us came home with tons of cookies - will be on cookie overload.
Now, I know how Al Gore felt after the recount!
