This week I was invited to a cookie exchange party with 50+ women in the area. I've never been to a cookie exchange, I've never met most of these women, and my specialty no fail cookie has always been the chocolate chip. I don't think that's going to cut it this time. Not that it's not delicious (and it IS!), but I want to try something new, something a little more festive. The Peppermint Macroon and the Glittering Lemon sandwich cookies are the two I'm debating between. I've always wanted to try the Macroon, and think if I set aside several hours the night before when all the kids are in bed, I could slowly follow these tips to perfection and hope & pray they turn out okay. But, the sandwich cookies are much easier + that glittery sanding sugar just looks fun! I'm thinking gold, silver & hot pink. Fun, no?
What are your thoughts? Have you ever tried making a Macroon? Is it too risky for a first-timer? Do you have any other fabulous cookies that you think would even trump these?! Tell, tell. Do you think 20 other women at the party will also have made Macroons, you know, since they're kind of the new cupcake and all?
(and can you tell this isn't stressing me out at all).
