I recently had a white trash cookie party. It was white trash not in a disgusting yicky sense but in a delicious, cookies-from-bygone-eras sense. We had some real winners, I think. I made these orange dream cookies with white chocolate chips. I thought they would taste like creamsicles. I’m not really sure how I feel about them. The pie in that photo? Magic pie. It’s that butterscotch cream pie with gingersnap crust.

And here we have some candy cane shortbready cookies plus white trash, which is seriously addictive stuff.

And saltine toffee and tingalings, always a crowd pleaser and so easy to make.

All in all everything was super delicious, and I was impressed that everyone actually stuck to the white trash theme (it was not going to be enforced). I just went to another cookie exchange this evening, but I didn’t take any photos. Man, it was a winner of an exchange. I am now very, very full.

    so many delicious looking cookies…. I myself made an insane amount of cookies (probably over 80 with more batter to spare) plus a cake and truffles. How is it that I’m not sick of, or repulsed by the sight of sweets yet?

    Those photos were taken with the G1, right? That’s an awesome camera! The cookies look just as delicious as they were in real life.

    Of course the whole time I was reading your post I was singing Eminem’s WTP but substituting cookies into the song.

    They both sound utterly enjoyable: the white trash cookie party and cookie exchange.

    Happy holidays, Mariko!

    I call the tingalings “haystacks”, and my son’s Christmas goodie tray is not complete without them. Also the saltine toffee – Christmas Crack! Oh how I love the permission to indulge that comes only at Christmas!
