2008 Annual Cookie Party

Posted on November 11, 2009. Filed under: Cookies, Holidays |

So this posting is coming about, oh, I would say almost a year late. Good job Julia. Wait to be on top of it.

The cookie party was more then just stuffing our face with cookies. In fact, we don’t really eat many of the cookies while we are here. Last year we had so much fun ooohhing and ahhhhing over all the scrumptious creations. Instead of stuffing our face with cookies, we stuffed our face with other Christmas treats. Like cranberry baked brie, and spinach artichoke dip, and other cheese and cracker delights. A complimentary wheel barrel was waiting outside the front door to chauffeur people home.

Because of the quantity of cookies brought, I was eating cookies for weeks after. I did not complain one bit.

We had over 10 varieties of cookies. And even a cookie flavored martini, what? Fantastic! Just to ensure that there aren’t any repeats from last year, here is what we had last year:

1. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
2. Chocolate Cherry
3. Chocolate White Chocolate Chip
4. Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal
5. Chocolate Chip
6. Rum Balls
7. Coconut Christmas Trees- no bake cookie in the shape of little Christmas trees
8. Oatmeal Cookie Martini- out of respect for the contributor, I won’t give away her ( her husband’s) secret recipe. Just know, it is delicious!
9. Irish Shortbread Bars
10. Chocolate Mint

Try making any/all of them, just not for the 2009 cookie party.

If you have never had a cookie party, I encourage you to throw one. You don’t need a big fancy house or even fancy Christmas decorations (Shoot, we didn’t even put up a Christmas tree last year). You just need some friends who are willing to bake a few dozen cookies and share them.
