My book club decided to do a cookie exchange this year and I confess to mixed emotions, I don't make cookies much anymore. It's cheaper and faster to just buy a pack of Oreos or Pecan Sandies or Chunky Chips Ahoy. But nonetheless - I looked at some recipes (love this Betty Crocker site!), made my choices (we were to make more than one kind), went to the store, bought the ingredients and voila! Cookies! There was a real sense of satisfaction - I even made a frosted cookie which I don't remember ever doing before. Perhaps I will do this again!
