This weekend I set out to bake 500 cookies. I always bake cookies around the holidays because I like to give them out as gifts and people seem to really like my cookies. Usually I bake around 300, but I had a lot more requests for them this year and planned to make more. About halfway through the bake-a-thon though, I realized I was going to have far more than 500 cookies when I was done.
Chocolate Chip with Pecan Cookies
7 hours later, there were 791 cookies. O_O
In case you're wondering, this is what 791 cookies looks like.
It took 4-5 more hours to prepare all of them as gifts, with all the tissue paper, ribbons, tagging, and packaging. To say I was exhausted would be an understatement. I’m still tired.
And you might think that I’d quit after that, but nope. I just had to make something else this year. So I made an old family recipe for Holiday Spice Cakes!
I can’t wait until everyone’s received their goodies! 😀
We have this running joke in my house around the holidays that I’m a Keebler Elf (partly because I’m so short, partly because of the cookie baking). I’m pretty sure I got the “Most Productive Keebler Elf of the Season” award this year.
