Grandma's cookie monster

When Jim and I visited Bubby, Megan and Preston recently, I brought along an assortment of cookies from our annual Cookie Swap.

I don't think even Cookie Monster from Sesame Street gets as much enjoyment out of a few cookies as Bubby did from these.

More? More? Mmmm, mmmm, good!Today's question from "The Christmas Conversation Piece":

Approximately how many dozens of cookies do you bake during a typical Christmas season? Would you like to guess at how many you eat during the season?

My answer: I usually make about 15 dozen -- of the same kind, for swapping at our annual cookie swap. This year, I've probably eaten ... AAACK! ... about two dozen total so far.
