Holiday Cookie Exchange

  • Dec 23, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Season's Greetings!!! It's time for another cookie exchange. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, none of us have the time to make 16 dozen, DIFFERENT batches of cookies as mandated by Martha Stewart law!

That's where the cookie exchange comes in. Each guest will MAKE 2 dozen of their favorite or an interesting holiday cookie. We will mix them together, and everyone will leave with two dozen (or more) of all different types of cookies.

The rules are, the cookies MUST be home made. DO NOT bring store bought cookies; they are not welcome at this event. Do not bring sweet-shop or holiday store cookies or any other type of goodie that isn't made at your home. Cookies must be home-made which means made at home; preferably by you and not your slave mother.

Also, if you want to bring more than one kind of home-made cookie, that is perfectly awesome, but definitely not required or even expected; just be sure there are about 2 dozen-ish of each. I love to slave over a fire for hours on end, so I will probably be making two or three types myself.

------------------------------------------------------------

DINNER IS SERVED

Chef William will be serving a fantastic spaghetti dinner for all attendees! ZOMG YUMZ!

We will have a spicy italian sausage & ground beef version and a vegetarian version, both with fresh sauteed veggies. Also, we will have some yummy holiday-themed cocktails including Rudolph's Spiked Hot Apple Cider and Santa's Secret Eggnog!

You do not need to bring anything at all except for home-made cookies.

    My afternoons work didn't turn out ;-/
    Too much moisture invaded the oatmeal triple nut cookies and they spread out too much and crumble too easily. :(
    What else can I bring to make up for my failure?

    • Rob M.

      Haha, I may do something similar, roll them into balls and coat them in something tasty.

    I've also done peppermint meringues. It will be quite obviously homemade, though I may make a second batch hoping for better results.

    • Renee

      I agree, meringues are not easy to make!

    I've been practicing baking all weekend. I think I got the hang of it. Any one have any pointers for a newbie?

      Learn the creaming method. Do it right and it's difficult to make a bad cookie.

    I've just had the most yummy black russian cake earlier. So I will probably find a way to incorporate some form of liqueur in my cookies. Don't worry, I am pretty sure the alcohol will burn off

    • Son N.

      We can vote on how long I should bake them. You and I probably like it raw....I mean the cookies that is. Get your mind out of the gutter.
