I mixed up the dough last night and it is now thoroughly chilled. I plan to bake them this morning. Wish me luck! I'll be sure to post an update. Oh, and the recipe for these delectable delights can be found here.
Our mug exchange is always interesting. We do it "round robin" style. Everyone draws numbers. The 1st person picks out a mug. The 2nd person can take hers or pick one out for herself. And so on. It can be awfully infuriating a lot of fun. The key is to not fall in love with your initial selection because most likely someone is going to swipe it from you when it it their turn. The only time I came home with the mug that I absolutely adored was when I selected this baby:
Isn't this a fun mug! I love it! Now once you take your mug home, whenever you use it you are to say a prayer for the person who gave it. I've said many prayers for the giver of this boot!
Of course, I want to be the giver of a popular mug. . . I need all the prayers I can get! This is the mug that I selected to purchase after searching high and low:
I found it at 10,000 Villages, a fair trade retailer that works with artisans from around the world. It's from Nepal. I'm loving the bamboo detail. Hopefully someone will covet this mug and use it often.
Anyhow, I will be back later to post photos of my cookies. I hope they turn out as well as Bethany's.
