I Think I Can

Bake 300 cookies in a day...and I did!!!

This photo shows less than half though. In case you'd like to try this at home, here's the recipe:

30 sticks butter
15 cups sugar
15 eggs
15 tsp. vanilla
45 cups flour
22.5 tsp. baking powder
7.5 tsp. salt

I've invited a bunch of friends to the beach next weekend and made these to share. I'm looking forward to a calm, quiet, no jet skiing, no eating, no Emporer island, no swimming, alcohol-free day. OK, so only the friends and beach part are true!

I love these!! They are the prettiest cookie I've made in a long time. They also bring back memories--memories of how this whole cookie thing started. Joan volunteered to make hibiscus cookie favors for her niece's wedding and enlisted the help of a few friends (one of them being yours truly). From what I remember, we made about 150. I would love to see a photo of those, just to see how far we have come in our cookie decorating skills.

So Joan, my challenge to you (since you obviously haven't been making cookies, okay, I'll cut you some slack--just not blogging pictures),--find photos of those cookies! I'd love to see them.

Cindy ordered these for her daughter's bridal shower, I think she chose perfect colors, they go so well together.

Jen's niece is graduating and will be going to school on a Naval ROTC scholarship. These are traveling all the way to Wisconsin for the party.
