Cookies for Charity

My friend and I baked nearly forty dozen cookies recently for a charity event in our town. WHEW! That was a lot of work! We learned a lot along the way, including which variety of cookies were most popular. Some things we learned were:

1) Post a sign about whether or not your cookies contain nuts. Ours did, so we wanted everyone to know that.

2) Make it easy for each person to grab a cookie and napkin without touching other cookies.

3) Stick to the basics. Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Chip and, to a lesser extent, Peanut Butter were the big hits. Very few people went for unusual flavors like Coconut Pecan and Almond Tea Cookies.
