Final evening, a bunch of women came visiting for a cookie swap, which I now imagine is the proper kind of occasion. Associates arrive with armfuls of baked items; you hang around, drink wine, eat cookies, and chat; and everybody leaves with a panoply of treats — what might be higher? Right here’s the way it went down…
First, individuals positioned their cookies on the counter. My invitation prompt that folks carry two dozen cookies, however added: “It’s low-key, so if you need, carry store-bought. Nobody cares!” so there was zero strain to do something fancy.
Jessie introduced Joe-Joe’s, that are Dealer Joe’s peppermint Oreos and really scrumptious.
Nothing extra joyful than a houseful of girls!!!
Earlier than divvying up the cookies, everybody went round to elucidate what they introduced. Whereas they talked, Toby — ceaselessly our “hype man” — piped in with feedback, like “That’s the cookie to beat!” and “Let’s gooooooooooo.”
And…drumroll…the cookies that stole the present? Amanda introduced Susan Spungen’s ginger chocolate cookies AND Sarah Kieffer’s olive oil cookies with lemon glaze, and holy smokes, they appeared like common cookies, however they have been really taste explosions. Extremely advocate.
Do you host cookie swaps? Any suggestions so as to add? Or recipes to share? Would love to listen to…
