Last weekend (yes, I'm a week behind) was Cookie Exchange weekend 2008. I baked all day on Saturday! Cookie Exchange #1 was at my friend Chavaun's house. For that one, I baked Chris' recommendation, the Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies. They were really good and easy to make, too!
Sunday, I hosted the cooking club that I'm a part of for another cookie exchange. For Sunday, I made Peanut Butter Heath Bar cookies from a recipe I found on the package of Heath Bar bits. Oh, those things are SO good. They are in the back right of the picture below.
I also made Rice Krispie treats and we used cookie cutters to cut out shapes, then decorated them with icing. They were easier than sugar cookies and something a little bit different. We took most of them to a friend's house who just had a baby after the cooking club. Here are a couple of our creations.
All in all, it was fun and gave me an assortment of cookies to pass along as a part of my staff gifts this year. Now that I'm starting to gift things, I can share them!
Wow – what a fun event. Everything looks delicious. I am especially intrigued by the candy cane place card holders. What an ingenious idea!
Now I need to get more cake mix and make some butter cookies!
oh my god, so many cookies! i’m salivating 🙂
