Cookie madness

Today was the first annual playgroup cookie exchange. And it didn't disappoint!

I came home with 10 dozen cookies in 5 varieties. The baking was pretty easy. It took me 2 hours to make 13.5 dozen cookies (not counting the first batch I burned). The hard part will be letting all those cookies walk out the door as Christmas presents for friends and neighbors.

I made a peanut butter cookie with a hershey kiss on top - a classic cookie if you ask me. My recipe should have made 12 dozen, but I ended up with way more! In the past I've tended to make my cookies too big and come up short on my count, so I think I was being overly cautious and made them a little too small.

My tummy is happy I have extra, but I know my hips are gonna be pissed.

P.S. Sorry no pictures; our expert photographer was absent today on account of her lil guy being sick. Missed ya Nata-Leigh!

We were so sad not to be there either, but so happy we could get the cookies there (and even happier when Brandy brought ours back)! I have yet to sample them as my hips have requested I hold off as long as possible. But, they look great! (Maybe I'll take a few pics later to post on my blog and you can steal them.)

Wait a minute, wait a minute ... I'm supposed to give these cookies away? I wondered what I supposed to do with that many cookies! Pictures posted on my blog.
