The exchange had some guidelines, no chocolate chip cookies, no bar cookies, and be creative with your packaging! I don't bake much but I love to create so I jumped on in! Here are some pics of my baking extravaganza!
I bought too many supplies and I mixed up way too much dough ... there is even some still left in the refrigerator! This time I followed the recipe as written... I didn't want to take any chances!
Now for my packaging... being a newbie I wanted to start off easy, nothing too fancy, so on black Friday I picked up some boxes at Hobby Lobby and then started thinking about what design I wanted to use. I was planning to emboss some silver snowflakes on the box but the waxy finish wouldn't let me so my design went from classy to cutesy!
I used FSJ's "Snow Buddy" to create the cutesy part. I love the snowflakes that are part of the set.
I just realized I didn't take all the cookies photos... drat! And yep... they are all mostly eaten by now I mean come on... it's Monday already!
