It was a good weekend for cookies.
Rather, it was a good weekend for making cookies; I'm sure these little guys object every time I pull one of them from the cookie jar/tin.
I went to friend Sandy's house and made cookies all day with her and friend Kirsten. You may be wondering what I mean when I say "all day." I arrived at around 11 a.m., and we pretty much jumped right into it. We didn't call it quits for the evening until 11 p.m. or so, at which point we had consumed at least two bottles of wine throughout the day, not to mention a fair amount of dough.
Despite that, we still ended up with about 1,000 cookies. What you see above is my share.
From the top left, counterclockwise, we made: M&M cookies, lemon poppyseed cookies, jam thumbprints, cranberry-orange swirls, snickerdoodles, chai spirals, mint hideaways, chocolate crinkles, peanut butter kisses, Sally Anns, candy canes, gingerbread, and pumpkin walnut cookies. They are all delicious, and we only burned a couple of trays.
Cookie parties are awesome.
