    TPubmgjbd's Note:

    I've been doing my cookie/candy marathon for years. I prepare my chilled doughs the first day then work on items that require no baking on the second day. On the third day, I bake everything. When I have everything prepared and the plates of finished cookies and candies are sitting on my dining room table, I take my containers and go around the table filling each container with an assortment of each item. Prep time and cook time are very rough estimates. As far as servings, I make a LOT but I don't have the quantity for each recipe on my preparation sheets. I usually prepare 12 to 15 gift boxes from the assortment and then keep the rest for me!

      This sounds so much like my cookie marathon with different recipes though I will be trying some of yours. I bake for 3 to 4 days from 8 in the morning to sometimes 2 the next morning. Get a few hours sleep then back at it. I make up about 12 boxes of assorted sizes. I give to our police department, the main fire station (delivered on Christmas day) neighbors, friends, relatives, 2 of our favorite restaraunts, 2 of my doctors offices etc. I bake about 14 kinds of cookies, 8 to 10 dozen of each kind. The cookie monsters in my family manage to get their fair share before I give them out. This is my time to shine as it is yours. P.S During baking nobody dares to walk into the kitchen without my permission :-))))))).

      The cream cheese frills kind of fell apart for me. The other cookie recipes were excellent. I greatly appreciated having this all written out in one spot. I will definitely be using these again next year.
