The cookie exchange has come and gone and now I have squares and fudge and cookies (of course) to show for my efforts. Apparently it was a treat exchange as opposed to a cookie-only exchange. But I learned several things from this endeavour…
– My Christmas baking is not nearly done. 144 treats sounds like a lot… but really, everyone has a couple of favourites, and the rest, while good, are really the only ones that are going to last any length of time.
– After baking more than 150 treats, sweets are the last thing you probably actually want to eat. (I wouldn’t have thought that possible before).
– I said I’ll never do it again… but ask me next November.
