Annual "Drunken" Cookie Night

A couple of years ago, my Aunts on my father's side of the family started the "Drunken" cookie night. We get together to bake cookies, chat, and of course drink! Everyone brought cookie dough and a beverage of their choice and we got to work baking.

My Aunt S has a pretty neat plastic "thingy" that she rolls the dough in between so that it doesn't stick to the rolling pin. My cousin is demonstrating below!

Even Doodle Bug got involved! He loved looking, playing, and eating!

Cookies galore! You name it, we baked it! Chocolate chip, gingerbread, sugar, peanut butter drop, Aunt D's famous thumb print cookies (my favorite)...

Baking, decorating, drinking, and having a good time...

Voila!!! A few of the finished cookies!!!

We even made a Gingerbread House!

We probably made about 12 dozen cookies that night! Then we divided them up and each took some home with us.
Well, apparently Hubby felt left out of the cookie night because the next day he wanted to make some of his own.

He's really into the decorating process ;o)
Here are MORE cookies that we made the next day...
Needless to say, I easily gained 10 lbs this weekend!!! I've decided not to care until after the new year :o) This way I have a good New Year's Resolution to make!
Since this is a blog about my Doodle Bug, here are a few of my favorite pictures of him!!!

He spends the majority of his day being silly and making me laugh! He's the reason for my smile!

  1. That is a LOT of cookies. Sounds like a great family get-together idea. Thanks for sharing.
