bake on it

Hey, thanks for sharing all your chocolate-eating rules! I notice there are few households that allow the bite-and-drop method, and I suppose that is a good thing. I’ll let you know when/if the article is posted at Candy Addict!
There’s been quite a bit of baking and cookie consumption going on around here. I went to a cookie exchange yesterday, and I baked two kinds of cookies for it, but I guess I forgot to take photos. Oh well. I made sabl

    I went to a cookie exchange last week. The ones I personally loved the most were Austrian raspberry shortbread – these suckers melt in your mouth and I couldn’t stop eating them (recipe here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,1977,FOOD_9936_12891,00.html), but the crowd favorite was definitely mocha cookies, which one woman compared to crack. Recipe found here: http://www.wchstv.com/gmarecipes/mochacookies.shtml. A little too mocha-y for my taste, but I hate coffee, so what do I know?
    I love the mutilated gingerbread people, BTW.

    i haven’t done a cookie exchange for years – too late to suggest at work since everyone is taking vacation or too crazy with the busy-ness of the season – hmmm…is there a national cookie day or something to celebrate?

    I’d love to get my hands on that nutmeg cookie recipe-I’ve never heard of them before. They sound delish! Love your site!

    i have participated in a competitive cookie exchange with 90 women the last 2 years. it is crazy! my lavender shortbread with white chocolate drizzle was very popular, but i am a big fan of the golden syrup crisps i make each year. i love cookies!

    v.v. jealous. I wish i could eat cookies, just to make the mutilated gingerpeople. I will have to work on my gluten free baking this coming year! but I doubt there will be a gf cookie exchange in this town anytime soon!

    I love the mutilated gingerbread person. Too cute!
    I’ve been reading for a while, but this is my first comment. I participated in a cookie exchange at work and made thumbprint cookies with strawberry and plum jam. There were some chocolate haystacks and some vegan chocolate/coconut cookies that were delish. They didn’t last long.

    I did a cookie swap and I made Martha Stewart’s ice box butter cookies. They went over well but the truth is, out of all the crazy cookies I got my fav were some very basic chocolate chip cookies. I’m just a basic girl I guess.
    Happy cookie eating everyone!
