“Dear Lord: The gods have been good to me. For the first time in my life, everything is absolutely perfect just the way it is. So here's the deal: You freeze everything the way it is, and I won't ask for anything more. If that is OK, please give me absolutely no sign. OK, deal. In gratitude, I present you this offering of cookies and milk. If you want me to eat them for you, give me no sign. Thy will be done.”
- Homer Simpson
I told myself that I would not be posting this weekend, but the thought of holiday cookies has me already in a tizzy. The list of cookies I will be baking this year, thanks to this blog, is growing by the pound (as will I). But I think everyone has a holiday cookie recipe that they make every year, and so instead of a real cookie exchange, I am inaugurating the first annual Omnieater Virtual Cookie Exchange. Send me your cookie recipes and I will compile them all into one large cookie post, to be held around the 2nd week of December. As per US regulations, I will be an equal opportunity cookie employer. No cookie should be denied the right to be eaten.So bring on the cookie goodness. Try to be as accurate as possible with ingredients and directions. Pictures and anecdotes are encouraged. And feel free to test out your own recipe before you send it to me. Practice, after all, makes perfect.
