“Veni, vedi, vici…bis coctum!” Ah, yes, that’s Latin(ish) for, “We came, we saw, we conquered some cookies!” For the second-annual cookie exchange, we gathered in our best,
holiday California-casual attire to swap some sweets and revel in the recipes of our gal pals. This year, we voted for treats in each of the following categories: best looking, best tasting, most creative and most unique holiday treats. Printable details were inspired by those created by Natalie at BBM. Each prize-winner took home a special gift, and we all departed with multiple plates and boxes of decadent and decorative delights! Here are the treats, and recipes, from this special day! Mark your calendars for next year’s exchange, to be held on December 9th, 2012! Bonus…I’ve decided to offer a Gingerbread House Workshop prior to the cookie exchange. Let me know if you’re interested in participating!
