Sometime in the middle of October, my lovely foodgawker RSS Feed showed me this awesome project called Baking Gals. It is a group of people from all over who bake cookies and mail them to a deserving troop deployed over seas. I thought it was kind of cool, and decided to sign up. I joined Team Sweet Dumpling and mailed cookies to Dan deployed in Afganistan. I probably was one of the last to mail my cookies, on the deadline of November 10th!, so I hope the cookies just keep comin’ for Dan!
My original plan was to send 3 kinds of cookies: snicker doodles, clasic chocolate chip and Dorie Greenspan’s World Peace Cookies. Well, the snicker doodles and the chocolate chip came out perfect…the world peace cookies….not so much. (Mr. Fresh found this hillarious that the world peace cookies for a soldier didn’t turn out. I just liked how chocolatey they were.)
I included some post cards of Chicago for Dan so he can enjoy our beautiful sky line! I hope he enjoys them because I know I loved my Baking Gals experience! I can’t wait for round 5!!
If you want to get involved too go to www.bakinggals.com and sign up! It’s super easy and gives you a change to flex your baking muscles!
