I surived....

.... the annual safeway cookie bake. I would like to proudly say I made 85-90% of the cookies this year, and did not have a single bite of the dough or frosting. My parents now have way to many cookies at there house. Just helped frost some more cookies just tonight, still no licking of the fingers or eating the dough. So far so good.

fyi: The safeway cookie bake aka the Dornbecher Cookie bake! Basically Safeway opens up their bread plant and people come from everywhere to bake cookies (for themselves) and help support the hospital (to my knowledge safeway donates all the dough, and you pay like $15-20 bucks for 10 pounds of dough and i think $10-15 for a table to reserve for 2 hours for cookie cutter cutting. you have to move to a new location to frost) The cookie bake sells out within hours of opening the phones lines. (i think they have somewhere between 1500-2000 cookie makers in the day.)
