Last night I hosted the first annual neighborhood cookie exchange with my book club ladies!
It was so great - everyone had to bake 7 doz cookies, packaged in 14 bags of 6 AND if that wasn't enough they had to make the packaging display beautiful! for prizes of course!
When we talked about this 1/2 the ladies were all for it and the other 1/2 weren't so sure they could do the baking, shop for presents, work and be a mom. One lady in particular said there was no way and that I was crazy - although the last the respond she made yummy butterscotch rice krispie treats and I really think she enjoyed herself.
Another neighbor said that this was one of the first times she ever baked! I checked my email this am and she has already responded YES to the Second Annual cookie exchange - how great is that.
Well thanks ladies - it was a lovely evening. I enjoyed hosting and can't wait to break into some of these cookies - now which one to try first?
