a day of a thousand cookies  

Okay, probably not a thousand, but I’m doing an awful lot of baking over the next couple days, in preparation for P-Con! It’s being held at the Irish Writers’ Centre this year, which is awesome in all ways except it does lack a bar/food court, so I’m making around a zillion treats and will put them up with a donate button sign.

I can’t decide if I should make more smaller cookies, or fewer larger ones (more larger ones is not an option), and I can’t figure out what price to suggest as a donation price either way. Maybe €1 for a single large/2 small cookies, €2 for a cupcake, and €3 for the big muffins I’m going to make? All proceeds will go to the care and feeding of P-Con 10 and the Writers’ Centre, so it’s a Noble Cause.

And there is also So Much Housecleaning to do. The upstairs bathroom and the computer *must* be done. Aghglghl.

My offer to send you some Swedish recipes remains. Especially the one that makes 70 cookes at once :).

oh, do! I always like new recipes, even if I don't have the right ingredients to hand right now!

E-mail sent. And as a coincidence, one of the recipes I sent was a brownielike cupcake recipe. LOL!

Mind sharing those with a complete stranger? I'm always interested in new tried and true recipes.

Two of them is here, and the third one is here.

Thank you! I've printed them out to go in my "make this" list of recipes ... preferably when I won't eat them all myself can share them with someone other than my husband.

P-Con with no bar? Eek. Suddenly I'm almost glad I'm spending the weekend packing boxes instead. Almost.

Have a lovely con.

Now I want cookies.

And a P-Con.

Your list of cookies, muffins, and cupakes has left me needing a sweet fix.

Hope you have an awesome con.

Your list has made me want to try out some of the recipes in the giant book of cookie recipes I picked up discarded from the library.

Of course, all I have are the ingredients for the mixes I own.

Given that I've been making lemon curd ALL THE TIME (okay, I've made it twice this year, and I made lime curd once), you should send me your Lemon Curd Muffin recipe. (;

Yummy! Can't wait! See you Saturday.

Will there be a P-Con Pie?
