Per recent tradition, my sister and I have held out third annual cookie party extravaganza. The first year, there were 3 or 4 kinds. Last year there were at least 6. This year, with the upping of the ante of moving the party to my parents kitchen, which contains two ovens, there were 11 types. That, my friends, is at least 800 cookies.
It started, as all good cookie parties do, with two mixers and a shit ton of butter.

(mini) Giant Molasses Ginger cookies
Peanut Butter blossoms
poppy seed shortbread
early grey tea cookies
chocolate chip shortbread
lemon blobby things
peppermint bark cookie
brown sugar icebox cookies

Oh, and 800+ cookies? They look like this:
The eating season, it has begun.
