On Saturday, I’m going to my first ever cookie swap, and — as a result — I found myself baking 10 dozen gingerbread men last night. Yes, 10 dozen. That’s 10 cups of flour… 3 cups of butter… 240 chocolate buttons… 120 gingerbread cookies… 1 exhausted cook.
How’s that for math?
Halfway through my baking endeavors, sometime around 8pm, I had my hubby take this photo. By the end of the evening, I — and the rest of the kitchen — was completely covered in flour.
But now that it’s done, I can say that it was worth it. And I can’t wait for Saturday’s swap and all the goodies I’ll come home with. 🙂
Have you ever participated in a cookie swap?
