I attended my first ever cookie exchange on Monday evening and took peppermint meringues as my offering. I made the recipe as is and mixed in some crushed peppermint candies (my new go-to ingredient) right before piping them onto the parchment paper.
What a brilliant idea a cookie exchange is! You make one kind of cookie to share and come home with tons of different cookies to try. It's a genius plan.
Other than that, I haven't done any holiday baking. Kind of sad really.
I need to do some sort of holiday baking or the universe will be off-kilter n' stuff.
Remember my massive bake-a-thon that I did right before school started? Well, all of those baked goods have finally been consumed. They lasted a whole semester! So really, maybe I shouldn't worry about the holiday baking as much as the restocking my freezer with breakfast foods. :)
