Cookies, Jeebus

We are perhaps overstocked in the cookie department.

We have/had 4 dozen of these (they were made this weekend and I haven’t recounted what is left)

Yesterday morning the boys & I got together with my friend Mel & her kids and made 8 dozen of these, which we split between us

Last night DH made 4 dozen of these (some of which he took into work for his coworkers)

Here is the problem.

It’s just us this Christmas. No one is visiting. We are going no where. Just us and the sugar.

Until New Year’s Eve when we are having a party.

But that is 8 days from now.

8 days!

I’m thinking of taking bets on whether there are any cookies left for the party

Looks like my kitchen! I'm going to rectify the problem later today, though, and take cookies around to some of the neighbors.

Ruh-roh. You're gonna need a lot of willpower for that long! I know I'd have to give them away if it was just the hubs and me. Like first family, then neighbors, then complete strangers on the street, assuming they'd take 'em.

I'm so impressed you made so many dozens. Good luck!

Those cookies would be long gone before New Years in this house. They all look delicious. I love the airplane cookie the kids made.

That fudge looks yummy. Any chance of a recipe?

lol just sorted through all the food we've bought and prepared for the next few days and there is way more nibbling food than meal food - way, way more

Eight days - nope. There won't be a cookie in sight inside of six and you'll be baking again for the party! At least that is how it would be around here.

urgh... I'm still on such a sugar high from work today those pictures made me feel a little woozy. A supervisor & his wife went overboard baking, so he brought tons of cookies in for everyone, then one of the vendors dropped off a tray of chocolates. Oh yea and before the chocolates came I had chinese food. and now I'm having a beer.

Good luck with the willpower! I know I don't have any!

Wow. I'm coming to your house for Christmas (well, not really... I mean, it's not even on Google Maps or anything, so how could I find it?)
