My daughter is going on a mission trip this summer and their first fundraiser is a bake sale.
She needs to bring a recipe that will make ten dozen cookies (they are getting together to do some of the baking).
We weren't sure how many dozen the recipe made so we had to do trial run.
As you can see, it made quite a few. In fact, one recipe made six and a half dozen cookies!
It never seems like that many because they always disappear so quickly.
While making the cookies my old hand mixer had enough so I ended having to buy a new one.
Of course, I couldn't wait to try it out and made a chocolate cake.
The new one is fabulous. It has a thinner handle for my small hands and is lightweight.
Now on to baking eight dozen coffee cakes for the bake sale.
"Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap."
