I've been living the cookie life all week. Monday afternoon, I chose the recipes and made a shopping list. On Tuesday, the ingredients were purchased and assembled:
The next morning, my KitchenAid mixer got a workout cranking out three jumbo recipes; oatmeal raisin, Snickerdoodle and chocolate chip.
No cookie dough was snitched and eaten - primarily because I used store-bought eggs instead of my own chickens' supply. The extreme heat this summer has reduced their laying considerably, so I didn't have enough to spare for all this cookie dough. When I do use my girls' eggs to make cookie dough, there is plenty of nibbling going on. None of my family has ever gotten sick consuming raw egg originating from The Girls.
All this dough was stashed in the refrigerators overnight, then taken to the church this morning. RS and I met around 9am and turned the church kitchen into a cookie factory!

Three and a half hours later, the entire church smelled like Cookie Heaven and we had more than 25 dozen beautiful cookies.
These will be served this coming Sunday morning during a special Prayer Walk, organized by our Capital Campaign Prayer Team. All members of our congregation are invited to come spend an hour praying for each other, our various ministries and the building expansion project. May God bless the cookies, the prayers, the people and the project!
