Tuesday Turn About #181 Let’s Bake Cookies!

Have you started baking yet? In years past, I started the baking process the first week of December by making batches of cookie dough.

Hubby and I made dozens and dozens of cookies that we gave to our local police department where he worked for 28 years.

It was a great tradition for us and the officers loved it as well. I made about 8 different kinds of cookies and doubled/tripled most of those recipes.

For a grand total of 449ish cookies! Omgoodness, I just did the math – that’s about 37 dozen of cookies!

We would equally divide the cookies into tins for each shift so that they could enjoy them while they worked their long 12-hour shifts. I wonder how long those cookies lasted during the 12 hours!

This tradition carried on for 25 years. That’s a lot of cookies. And some of my best memories!

I’m baking cookies this week (but not nearly 37 dozen!) so stay tuned for at least one of those recipes to show up here!

In the meantime, let’s look at some amazing cookie recipes from last week’s link party!
