Now that 2012 is in the books, I wanted to go over all the cookies that comprised my Dad's Cookie of the Month Club membership.
In many ways, be it good or bad, I am a lot like my Dad.
I share his sense of humor.
I can thank him for the blonde hair!
And my Dad and I are super close
(Despite living 250miles away!)
Thank goodness for cell phones and the fact that he now texts!
Dec 26, 2010: I have no ide what to get Dad for Christmas next year. It's okay. I have a year to figure it out.
May 27, 2011: Dad likes to eat.
September 23, 2011 : Dad ALWAYS compliments my cookies and made
not-so-subtle insinuations that he'd like to have MORE
(Dad's favorite food group is "Hot and Massive")
October 5, 2011: I got it. I should create a "cookie club" where I send him homemade treats every month!
And that's where the idea came from. Dad's Cookie of the Month Club
Christmas 2011: Initiation into "the Club"
(These the cookies my dad BRAGS about.
It was an obvious choice for the inaugurational month)
January 2012: Brown Butter Toffee
February 2012: Heart Shaped Thin Mints*
March 2012: Oreo Crunch*
April 2012: Carrot Cake Cookies
May: Birthday Cupcakes
June: Rocky Road Cookies
September: Trail Mix Cookies
October: Black and White Cookies
December: Hot Cocoa Cookies!
(cookies with the asterisk mean the recipe is coming soon!)
This adventure was well appreciated by Dad and, also, required a lot of time. I wouldn't have done anything else but I did get him a gift for Christmas 2012.
