Cookie Exchange

Today I went to a cookie exchange at the lovely Pressey House Bed and Breakfast in Oakland, ME. It was hosted by Lorie, for the craft group of the Waterville Area Newcomer's club. It was so cozy sitting by the fire, sipping coffee, crocheting, and tasting cookies.

The Pressey House is an octagonal shaped house that was built in the 1850's and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. Out the windows is a beautiful view looking down Messalonskee Lake.

I had to bring 4 dozen cookies, so I spent all day baking yesterday, and made a huge mess in the kitchen. I made my favorite holiday cookie, rugalah. The recipe makes 4 dozen, so of course I had to make some extra so I could try them before bringing them.

Look at how beautifully these are decorated.

Here's what I brought home! I just need someone to help me eat them!
