The Menzies women, Lou Ann, Nora and Sara, have established an annual tradition: create variety in holiday cookies….not by slaving in the kitchen to create unlimited sweets, but calling all friends to mix it up! This year was no different. About 40 women brought 4 dozen cookies each, enjoyed a glass of champagne with pomegranate juice and a blackberry accent, and went home with a four dozen different cookies. The result was a complete transformation to the holiday cookie platter, for family and Santa. Here are some of the creative cookies that were exchanged. Prizes were awarded for the most creative cookies…a big hit was the melting snowmen, both vanilla and chocolate versions.
