We had a cookie exchange at work today. There were 9 of us participating. So on Sunday morning I baked 9 dozen White Chocolate and Cranberry. This is the recipe:
Mix together until well blended:
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white
Add 2 eggs and 1 tbsp. vanilla and continue mixing.
Combine 2-1/4 cup flour and 3/4 tsp. baking soda. Mix that into the first ingredients.
Stir in 1-1/2 cups dried cranberries and 1-1/4 cups white chocolate chips
Drop in tablespoons onto baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They are best when a little doughy do not allow to brown. This recipe made 36 cookies.
For the cookie exchange I was able to fit 12 cookies into each of 9 cello bags and I added a little Christmas decoration. Don’t they look pretty in their packages? The remaining dozen we each put onto a separate plate. We drank apple cider and each would take a turn passing our cookies around and telling a bit about them. We also printed a copy of our recipe for everyone. It was great fun and in return I came home with a lovely mix of 8 dozen cookies. The selection of cookies was great and I can’t wait to share them over the holiday season. It really was fun and although initially it took me 3 batches to make enough it was easy because I just had to repeat the same thing and ended up with all kinds of different cookies! YUMMY!!!
Have you ever been in a cookie exchange? How many dozen did you have to bake?
