One Thousand Cookies in Four Days

That was it. The Grand Total, One Thousand Cookies. Baked solely by me in four days. That's 83 dozen, folks. I made some of my favorites - Stripey Cookies, Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies, Nutella Macadamia Bars, and Slipper Cookies. I tried a few newbies as well - Lemony Bonbons, Cranberry Drops, and Snickerdoodles.

I gave most of them away to Cub Scouts, Teachers and Neighbors.

I was asked if I had worked at a bakery, if I am going to start a cookie business, and whether or not I'm just plain crazy. To which I responded:

No, I have not worked at a bakery.

Yes, I have thought of opening a cookie business, but need to figure out government regulations on something like that.

No, I don't think I'm crazy, although I may come up with the 12-Steps to Cookie Baking Addiction anyway.

It was a blast, as far as I was concerned. Mostly I just enjoy making the cookies and giving them to people that will appreciate them :).


  1. Jen, you're nuts. We made a boatload of cookies, too, but there were a lot of people working on them. It's a lot easier to make a lot of cookies if there's company in the kitchen.

  2. I know! I wish I had some regular company in the kitchen, but everyone's spread all over :(
