A while back, I came across an opportunity to host a Cookie Party sponsored by Betty Crocker. I signed up, and was selected as a host.
I invited a bunch of girlfriends over for a day of cookies. We baked a few recipes that Betty provided in the kit, and I had sugar cookies and royal icing set out for decorating. The guests also brought 3 dozen cookies for an exchange.
The party was great! We baked, talked, tasted, and gossiped over wine and appetizers. I really enjoyed putting the party together and I think my guests had a good time as well! Here are some pictures from the day:
Appetizers included hummus, bake brie en croute, and mini spanakpitas (not pictured).
Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti: (recipe to come at some point)
Chocolate-Mallow Cookie Pies: (recipe also to follow at some point):
A big thanks to those ladies who came and made the party such a success!
On a related note, I *almost* finished my holiday baking over the weekend. The 12 Days of Christmas Cookie posts are coming very soon.
