My friend Annie over at Doyle Speechworks came up with the fantastic idea of a virtual cookie exchange. Who doesn’t love getting together with your girlfriends and swapping cookies, stories and a lot of laughs?
It just so happens that yesterday I did just that – in person. Hosted by my friend (and her Mom) who teaches an integrated preschool class, she had tons of great ideas. Charlie Brown’s Christmas theme: how cute!
Twenty-two women brought 6 dozen cookies to share and taste-test.
Sugar overload! Everyone made six dozen cookies, all the same recipe. We chopped up one dozen to taste and judge. Best-tasting, Best Christmas theme, Best overall. There was candy too.
Delicious fun. I was definitely sensing a theme as they announced the winners: Chocolate, chocolate! (Note for next year)
Here’s what I brought to the party:
These little guys have big maple and bacon flavor- yum! They didn’t really need dressing up, but you could add a little “snow” and give them a thin coating of icing to make them white if you like.
Want the recipe?
Just save the recipe image to your computer and print.
Each participant brought baggies filled with three cookies each and popped them in these cute take-home goodie bags that were ready for us. We even got pages for our cumulative recipe books. This is the third year I have attended, and we get the recipe pack each year, so it’s growing!
Love Cookies? Be sure to hop over to Doyle Speech Works and read more great posts with recipes in a delicious virtual cookie swap.
Here’s hoping your Christmas will be sweet and merry!
