@Lydibug:  An engagement shoot of the two of you making a batch of cookies could be really cute 🙂

– The two of you handling ingredients

– Dabbing flower on each other’s nose 

– Mixing the bowl together

– You could make them heart shaped 

etc. etc.

I would get a cute apron 🙂 hehe

@Lydibug:  I love that idea. 🙂 I have some ideas for cookie flavors! Are you planning on baking them yourself or buying them? If you’re baking them, I have a bunch of cookie recipes I could share because I bake all the time, lol.

Anyway, I think chocolate-chip is a given! Some other options are: peanut butter cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies (my personal favorite), ginger snaps, macadamian nut cookies, snickerdoodles, macaroons, cream cheese cookies, and sugar cookies (maybe shaped like a heart, like @O.My.Heart suggested). I’m starting to wonder why we’re not offering this at our wedding because my fiance goes crazy over cookies, haha.

@Lydibug:  Love your idea, I think its really cute! I agree with O.My.Heart ideas of the baking for the engagement pictures! 

                 As for cookies, does your family do a lot of baking of cookies? Maybe ask some of your family their favourite home made cookies. You could get some older recipes that your parents or grandparents use to make from your childhood and incorporate them into the cookie bar! Can’t go wrong with a good old chocolate chip cookie with a glass of milk 🙂

What a cute idea! 😀

Are you going to offer flavoured milk?  Because that would be awesome!  There’s a milk & cookies “bar” in Toronto and although i find their cookies way too sweet, it’s such fun going there! (It’s called Moo Milk Bar if you want to google it for flavour ideas – I’m not affiliated to them in any way.) 

For cookie flavours, as PPs have suggested, chocolate chip is a given.  I also love sugar cookies (plain, but I guess they can be iced to match your theme), shortbread, pumpkin cookies, linzer cookies (which would be so great for decor – just punch the top layer with a heart-shaped cookie cutter of your initials, and let red jam peek through!), whoopie pies…so many possibilities!

For you engagement photos you should definitely stock up on cute & colourful sprinkles, milk with cute straws, an apron…that’d be adorable!

@Lydibug:  Eh, I’m not that thrilled about the idea of missing out on cake for any reason and I think the idea of milk and cookies is kind of underwhelming. Swapping out cake for an ice cream sundae bar gets me excited. But milk and cookies? Doesn’t really float my boat. IDK maybe I would find it cute if I knew you guys. Sometimes ideas don’t really appeal on paper (well, techinally screen) but they seem great in real life.

@Lydibug:  The only problem/concern is how would you keep it cold. I LOVE my milk ICE cold, literally ice cold … with ice in it, so how would it stay at a cold enough temp to drink it?
