wow! so a few weeks ago I was on a baking spree with a fellow Army wife- we baked cookies for our husbands' company {~75 soldiers} and then made more cookies just for our DHs. we had 5 cooling racks going pretty much the whole time! we made an assortment of 5 types of cookies. here's just a bit of the deliciousness we prepared... all of these recipes are from an insert in the latest Food Network Magazine! I can post the recipes later if anyone's interested though :) other yummy goodness I made included pecan bars, raspberry linzer, oatmeal raisin, and maple nut muffins made with buckwheat flour. and you know I had to sample all these before we sent them... just to make sure they were OK ;)
