Karoline’s ginger cookies
Jeff’s coconut macaroons
Tom’s molasses cookies
Nathan’s rum balls
Antoinette’s snickerdoodle cookies
Anne’s walnut ball cookies
Everything was delicious! And I love the creative packaging that people came up with. I ended up making those pretzel Rolo pecan treats which, I know wasn’t technically a “cookie” per se.
I think the neatest thing that came out of the cookie swap was getting to know some of my coworkers a little better and that we share a passion for baking. One of them commented about how he doesn’t like to bake/make things unless he has a purpose so it got me to thinking about doing some sort of monthly cookie swap. Like maybe every third Wednesday a month, if you wanted to participate, you’d bring in 2 dozen cookies/treats to the swap. Then depending on how many people showed up, we’d divi up the goodies for everyone to share and enjoy. After I presented the idea to this coworker, he added the idea where participants could not repeat any cookie/treat that was brought before therefore adding a challenge to be creative and try new [different] recipes. I’ll have to see if I can make this happen. 🙂
