    I even read a fact-sheet which gave information about ‘How To Cookie Swap’ and yeah – you don’t want more than about 6 guests because a) hassle, and b) TOO MANY COOKIES… think about how many you had to make – would you have wanted to make a dozen more for each additional partygoer?

    The hostess should have provided some labels for the cookies though, or asked you to bring some.

    Sounds…yeah, I think ‘interesting’ is the right word, and your cookies look WAY better than the others.

    An AUDITION? too much. And so is 7 dozen cookies. You are a trooper!

    I am entirely too lazy to bake 7 dozen cookies. I get bored after the first round comes out of the oven. My contribution would have been more of “Sweet daughter of mine……I need you to bake 7 dozen cookies, please” and then I would have taken cookies made by a 13 year old. and taken credit for them. That child can bake!

    I’m facing a 10 doz exchange next week and could kill myself! The annual exchange with 7 BFFs has grown with 3 unknown girls we’re not happy to be included but they begged the hostess to join our annual event. Mutinous muttering all around me, as the original 7 take pride in spectacular cookies made with the finest ingredients (after all, you only want to give the finest to your BFF gang)… typical comment from the original group: “they [the intrusive 3 new girls] better not buy, or bring chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies.” It’s getting ugly. YOUR cookie looks spectacular, btw! I’m off to look for it on the ‘net.

    I was involved in this baking thing last year, where you sent cookies and some other baked good to a person on the list. It was an internet thing. I baked my heart out. Did I ever get MY baked goods? No. Did I get a thank you or acknowledgment for the ones I sent?? No. Not that I’m bitter.

    And I really want to try those cookies. Imma hunt down a recipe because they sound amazing and I LOVE lemon.

    OMG…I love you.

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and that is just weird.
