… cookie party

cookie party

camera retrieved. it was a gael's house, so all is well and i can now tell you how fabulous cookie party was! i look forward to cookie party every year because it's a chance to see my lovely friends, make a whole mess of cookies, and eat a whole other mess of cookies. and then get sick of eating cookies. but then forget that i was sick of cookies and eat even more cookies. you know how it goes.

there were lots of yummy cookies this year. i'm a sucker for peanut butter kiss cookies (you know, the ones with a hershey's kiss plopped down on top). but there were some tasty tea cookies, sugar cookies, peppermint bark, toffee bars, chocolate crinkles and more i can't remember.

  1. I would love to host a cookie party! It just doesn't seem like Christmas without cookies in the house. No wonder I gain 10 pounds this time of year!

  2. Looks like fun. Makes me want to host a cookie swap/cookie exchange party. They all look great, and it's certainly not Christmas without cookies in the house! Your mention of peanut butter kisses makes me want to try making buckeye cookies this year. It is all about that chocolate and peanut buttery goodness. No wonder Christmas seems to make my clothes shrink.

  3. Adore this cookie party. That Santa looks way too cute. Keep sharing such posts dear. I am also in need of best garden party venue New York. Actually want to throw a vintage themed bash for my grandparent’s 75th anniversary. Also share some fun ideas for their bash!
