84 Dozen

November 5th, 2017 at 09:28 pm

I'm talking 84 dozen cookies...let me explain. It's been a roller coaster week. A dear lady from church passed away unexpectedly. She was 89, but you wouldn't have known it to observe her. She was a whirlwind. She had a stroke, went into a coma, and then peacefully slipped away.

The funeral was quite nice and she had a huge family. I feel sorry for her husband. They were devoted to each other and I imagine he will be quite lonely.

There were many things that she was involved in at church and we are now all trying to figure out how to keep many of these things going. Our annual Christmas bazaar is coming up and we all bake cookies. One of the chairs announced we all need to step up...the lady who just passed away baked 84 dozen cookies for the bazaar. She used to bake 100 dozen, but at 88, she figured she should cut back. I can't imagine baking that many cookies. Yikes! But, some of us have talked among ourselves and we are going to try and bake far more to make up for her not being there and providing.

So, I'm currently searching for cookie recipes that can be made ahead and frozen. I really don't want to spend the week before baking dozens and dozens of cookies. I have one recipe that I know freezes well. I have been stocking up on butter, flour, and sugar. So I guess I better get busy. But, I'm not up to 84 dozen cookies.

    Wow. That is a lot of cookies. My Sister-in-law's mom was just like that--going hard until the end, and it's taken dozens of people to make up for her loss. Hooray for you for helping to fill the void.

    Not sure if bars would count as cookies for your event, but I have made chocolate chip cookies in a jelly roll pan. I can cut it so I can get 48 small bites/bars out of it, so an easy 4 dozen in one go. I have two ovens right now, so that would be handy for me making that many cookies!

    Wow! I'm sorry for your loss. At 43, I need to learn to stop complaining, 84 dozen cookies at 88 is amazing. I think it's great you all have stepped up
