The Cookie Exchange


I am feeling rather ambitious this holiday season. I joined a cookie exchange where we were to bake 30 DOZEN cookies. Yep, me the non-chef, non-baker to make 30 DOZEN cookies! I am so naive that I didn't realise just how much it was. Let's just say I am very grateful to my mother who pretty much baked a whole ten dozen on her own while I was visiting a few weekends ago. I then took an entire day to bake another ten dozen. And then I was done. I couldn't look at dough any more to bake the last ten dozen. I still have the ingredients so although the exchange has come and gone (which I was too sick with a stomach flu to attend even!) I may yet bake those cookies. We'll see ...
