I got an invitation from a female coworker of Alan's to attend a cookie exchange party. Although I really appreciate being invited, I was pretty excited until I saw all the RULES of the exchange. I need to make 7 dozen cookies, meaning 7 different recipes. They must be Christmasy cookies - no chocolate chip nonsense, no Pillsbury anything, not the no-bake variety, and the main ingredient in all must be flour. They also need to be packaged in a cute/festive way, each individual dozen. And I should also bring an appetizer, beverage, and dress Christmasy if I want to win a prize. The dressing Christmasy part is not going to happen, folks. Unlike some teachers, I haven't accumulated those sorts of outfits.
So almost immediately I got on Pinterest and started searching. I found two or three possibilities so far, but that's a long way from SEVEN. Here's one:
I don't think they have to be Christmas colors, but rather a cookie that you would associate with the holidays. If you have a favorite holiday cookie, please send me the recipe or a link to it! I can't even RSVP for the party until I have all seven recipes. What is up with all the RULES?
