I mentioned the other day that I’ve been baking with my Mom, sister and two sister-in-laws this month…
Here is my sister putting gingersnaps onto cooling racks. Hi Brooke! I love baking and being with my sister more than words.
Gingersnaps dipped in white chocolate… that’s about 50 dozen cookies right there.
As soon as the cookies are totally cool, they go into their packages. I could swear packaging takes longer than baking. But that’s maybe because you feel like you should be done already.
At one point over this weekend, in about a 4 hour period, we baked 160 dozen cookies. That’s almost 2000 cookies in my Mom’s kitchen.
Once packaged in their cellophane bags, the cookies, brownies and breads all go into a lovely box.
That’s happiness in a package right there.
Today is our last day of cookies and I’m so happy that I have a week of nothing to do but enjoy time with my kids who are out of school for their Holiday vacation. Just in case you are wondering, no, I don’t get burned out of baking when I am done. I will still happily bake cookies with the kids for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.
