I told you it was going to be all about baking this week! We had a little cookie-eating party here, and dang but if we didn’t have a bunch of delicious morsels!
We didn’t really have any rules, just bake a batch and bring them to eat! I made these:
Other cookies we had: Action Hero Melissa brought chocolate sandwich cookies (super yum) and palmiers. Read about them here.
All Buttoned Up Melissa brought some sort of minty Mennonite cookie that was soft and delicious and gorgeous (lovely chocolate drizzle on top). She blogged about them here. She also brought some little ginger spice cookies.
Amy brought the super yummy apricot bars from last year’s Real Simple magazine.
Susan brought peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and almond butter chocolate chip cookies. She blogged about them here.
And Sally braved nasty rush-hour traffic to bring crisp and light pizzelles and two giant containers of ice cream! Apparently there were cupcakes, too, but they met an untimely end (really, Sally, did you think we wouldn’t eat upside-down, smushed cupcakes?)
I am already looking forward to Holiday Cooky Gorge Fest ver2 for 2008! If I get my act together I’ll try to announce it early so we can have more attendees (don’t want anyone to feel left out–I was one of those who was always the last person picked in PE class, so I am sensitive to such matters. Also, we need help eating the cookies. I have seriously eaten about a dozen cookies today and will no doubt eat another dozen before bedtime).
