In May, my brother and his then fiance, Racquel, asked me to bake 500 cookies for their wedding. The plan was that I was to bake 500 cookies, and Racquel’s friend was to bake 500 cookies.
Then her friend bailed.
So I baked all of the cookies. And I loved every second of the whole process. It took me a week to bake all of the cookies, so I averaged 1-2 different types per day.
Here’s a list of the cookies:
-Chewy lemon (8.5 dozen)
-Double chocolate (12 dozen)
-Peanut butter, pretzel, and milk chocolate chip (11 dozen)
-Almond butter (7.6 dozen)
-Zucchini cookies (8.5 dozen)
-Mexican wedding (7.5 dozen)
-Chocolate-dipped shortbread (8.2 dozen)
-Glazed orange (5 dozen)
-Chocolate chip (7 dozen)
-Lady locks (I ordered these because they’re hard to make! Sorry I’m not sorry.) (8 dozen)
Mexican wedding cookies… plus a messy kitchen table ;)
I didn’t take any pictures of the cookies at the reception, but I did visit the cookie table a few times throughout the evening to hear people’s opinions on the cookies (yes, I realize that is very creeper-ish).
The top three cookies that I heard guests rave about most were:
My thoughts on the experience:
-I LOVE BAKING.
-I would do it all again in a heartbeat.
-I’m sad it’s over. Seriously!
-I’m not sad that my freezer now has space for something other than cookies.
-My family and I loved taste testing every single batch of cookies!
-I’m really glad I could help with my brother’s wedding in such a fun way.
