Have you ever wondered what almost 950 cookies looks like?
Well, you can wonder no more because this is exactly what it looks like:
Last night’s CDNYEatDrinkBlog Cookie Swap was out of control fantastic!
When it comes to hosting, Heather totally wins the Hostess with the Mostest award.
There was even a “Guess How Many M&M’s Are In The Jar” game, too. I was this close to winning the Jar #2 guess!
A big thank you to Musselman’s, who actually donated some delicious cider for our get-together.
Which of course was offered with the option of being a “Big Girl” drink, too.
And then…there was the spread…
Rye Bread Dip from yours truly!
And then I saw it staring me in the face last night…and I drooled just a tid-bit more.
In between bites, of course.
Everyone had a really great time sitting around, chatting, and stuffing our faces.
Ok, well, maybe not everyone stuffed their faces…but I know I did.
Hence the reason I didn’t even bother taking a photo of my plate. Because it really wouldn’t have justified just how many goodies were consumed!
After a couple of hours, the time had arrived! We were all giddy with excitement…
It was time to SWAP SOME COOKIES!!!
My Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies (I’ll be sharing the recipe with ALL of you this week!)

As if I wasn’t already in love with the recipes from Liz @ Little Bitty Bakes…her Chambord Brownie Balls were off the charts amazing!!! It was so great to finally meet her!
So before I knew it, I had myself one large amount of cookies!
Is this not insane or what?!?
A Cookie Monster’s Heaven!
Plus, not only do I have the scrumptious goods in my possession, but now I also know how to make ALL of them, thanks to the recipe card swap, too!
I think I may have an idea of a few things I’ll be baking once this kitchen is all taken care of.
There’s certainly a lot of things that I’m thankful for in my life, but last night included two very important ones:
Cookies & Friends
Thanks to everyone for such a great evening!!
