3rd Annual Cookie Exchange | Oreo Cheesecake Truffles
Las night marked our third annual Christmas cookie exchange. Each December the girls and I get together for a good 'ol fashion cookie swap, share in some Christmas cheer and enjoy each others company.
14 girls x 6 cookies/girl = Cookie Coma
What will the fate of 80+ cookies be?
If you ask J. They are now his property.
If you ask the kids. They want to ship them to Santa. Their logic is simple. Cookies = presents. Lots of cookies = lots of presents.
I guess only time will tell what comes of these delicious treats....for now, it's cookies for breakfast.
This year I decided to go a different route and opt to make truffles instead of cookies. Oreo Cheesecake Truffles to be exact. My reasoning was simple; no bake, 3 ingredients, sinfully delicious. Triple win.
Merry Christmas Friends! 2012 was a great year and I can't wait to see what 2013 holds for all of us. I'm certain of one thing though, there will be cookies involved....
Peace, Love & Joy,
