I noticed the MeFi Cookie Swap is up on MetaTalk but I was thinking instead of tediously and expensively mailing cookies to each other, maybe we should try to meet up in person instead!
I’m going to invite some other friends too, but you all are welcome to come. I’ll make some mulled wine and have a cheese platter or some kind of savory snacks so we don’t all die of sugar overload.
Bring a batch of your favorite cookies!
The location I put is nearby—memail me for the correct address.

I have a cardamom snickerdoodle I would be willing to share.

Funny enough I just got my grandma's sugar cookie recipe from my aunt and some copper classic cookie cutters and assuming I don't screw them up this could be fun.

I'd be down! I've been dipping my toe into veganism (mostly for at-home/my own kitchen) so will probably make some vegan cookies. Otherwise, I'm still feeling loose enough in my approach to eat non-vegan stuff outside my house.

Cardamom snickerdoodles sound amazing!
I once had a dream that Kevin Smith gave me a cookie, and it was so good that I tried to recreate it in real life. It sounds kind of similar!

Any dates that work for you all?

We (me and Techno) are in, provided we can get a sitter.

I'm in! I'll probably bring a vegan snack (spiced nuts, perhaps?) to share as well as some vegan cooks.

Much to my regret, I'm not in the count for this weekend. Many thanks to exceptinsects for exceptional generosity in hosting the cookie swap, and I'd like to wish all of you a happy New Year.
Looking forward to seeing you in 2020, dearhearts.

My apologies for missing - I am dealing with some migraine issues and I was hoping it would pass, but didn't in time for me to make it.

Thank you for coming! (And Jeff too!)
It was an epic cookie buffet, I will say that much. :)
FritoKAL, I get migraines too so I completely understand. Hope you're feeling better!
