A friend invited us to see her new home and although we see each other all the time (school, karate and around the neighborhood, etc.) I have never been to her house and therefore have no idea what her style is. So, when I saw this idea on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe‘s site, I new this would be a great housewarming token. It’s easy, inexpensive and yummy. Plus, it will add a useful cookie sheet and dish towel to my friend’s new kitchen and some quick cookies for her entire family.
I prepared the cookie dough per Mel’s Kitchen Cafe instructions and after freezing the dough balls for a few hours, I put them into a nice plastic container (that my friend can reuse at her new home), put it all on a cookie sheet and added a cute dish towel. I added a ribbon to tie it all together, an instruction card and a handwritten personal note.
Alex, my eldest, asked if we could bake some cookies about ten minutes after we arrived at our friend’s home, so, we baked about a dozen cookies, the kids enjoyed them thoroughly and she still has a bunch to bake another day!
Congratulations on your new home Lore!
