It was so much fun to do nothing but baking for hours non stop. It is even more fun to do with a group of very organized geek (and wife of a geek). Here is how I planned to keep ourselves on track – portable tiny white board! Basic listing of all the cookies we need to bake. Along with brief instruction and baking time serve as excellent what to do and when. When u have a long list to attack, you must get organized =)
We started with checkerboard cookies. To speed up the process, I make the checkerboard cookies ahead of time and we only need to cut and bake. I highly recommend you keep a few block of these beautiful cookie dough in the freezer. It is so good for entertaining or a quick sugar fix!
Apparently the most time consuming and hardest to make to make cookie is actually the linzer.
At the end I was packing a mountain of cookies back home!
