Today was our annual Cookie Swap at school. Another reason why I love the holiday season.
I have written several times that despite how much I love to cook, I do not like to bake. Not at all. I always try to find a simple recipe to make. This year, I chose to make White Chocolate Caramel Turtle Fudge – mostly because it required no baking. Only melting. They turned out great. So delicious but soooo rich, that they had to be cut into tiny pieces.
With a cookie swap, I only have to “bake” once, but I wind up with dozens of cookies of all varieties. Then, I share them with my family at all of our get togethers over the next few nights. Tonight we are decorating my dad’s tree so I will bring the cookies along to share. Then, any left overs will get added to the Christmas Eve dessert platters.
So in the end, even though I don’t like to bake cookies…I do love to eat them…..so this is the way to do it!!
