Take Away 51 - Bake Cookies for Holiday Spirit
I baked a wagon load of Russian Tea Cakes last night to take to a cookie exchange today. I haven't been involved in a cookie exchange in probably 15 years. People just don't do them much anymore. I was thrilled to pieces as my energetic "mother-of-five-children/college-student/co-worker" lit up when I asked her if she wanted to do it. She not only said yes, she sent the email out to get others involved. She is my current hero! While normally a cookie exchange involves 12 people with 12 dozen cookies, she rounded up 6 people so we're just exchanging 6 dozen. Easy peazy!!!
