One of my niece’s decided to host her first annual cookie exchange this past weekend. Each family was to bring a plate or bag of 6 cookies for each participant. End result was coming home with 10 new cookie treats to try. So baking wouldn’t be too bad since there were 11 families represented, 66 cookies were needed. Now the difficult part was finding the time to make them. We had a ball game on Monday and also a meeting, and on Tuesday two ball games, one for each of our kids, to go to after work. We wouldn’t get home until almost 10 p.m. On Wednesday afternoon I left for a two day staff meeting out of town, not returning until late afternoon on Friday. Now, the clincher was that the party was on Friday night! No time for me to bake, so hubby to the rescue! His only request was to make sure I had all the ingredients ready.
I picked a recipe from our holiday collection that hubby started to make about 15 years ago. It was one of the recipes you find in the coupons section of the paper from Nestle’s. Hubby had them ready to go when I arrived home on Friday and had printed out the recipe for us to share. So, now the big question is what to make next year?
