The Cookie Mavens are back in action!! (Cue the theme song!!)
First of all, for anyone who hasn't read last year's cookie adventures, start out with the rules .
Second of all, be careful who you try this with - not eveyone is cut out to be a Cookie Maven. We gals have cast iron constitutions, hardcore baking chops and a hatrd of skinny people. Plus, after working together for eight years, we are a team that has been hardened in the twin fires of planning and execution. And we are insane. That helps too.
We had our first meeting last Sunday - that first meeting always starts with a review of the previous year... Our conclusions?
- We made too damn many cookies. Again.
- While people SAY they like gingerbread men - they lie. They like looking at gingerbread men, not eating them.
- People really want chocolate chip cookies and snickerdoodles - but they can kiss our butts. Added snickerdoodles to the list of forbidden cookies just to piss off a certain assistant manager.
- We need to eat fewer cookies and give more to others. Our waistlines will thank us in January.
Hi - This is Anthony, Rosie's husband. I got our daughter to knock at the door - that will keep Rosie busy for a moment.
NO MORE OF THOSE DAMN SUGAR COOKIES. NO COOKIES WITH ROYAL ICING. NO CUTE COOKIES - I DON'T NEED COOKIES THAT LOOK LIKE LAMBS OR STARS OR WHATEVER. I DON'T NEED THAT CRAP. SPEAKING OF CRAP - THAT IS WHAT ROYAL ICING TASTES LIKE!!!! I WANT CHOCOLATE AND NUTS - NO DAMN RAISINS.
