    aplusj:  All those cookie ideas sound great. I love a chewy chocolate chip cookie.

    I’ve never had a problem defrosting regular chocolate chip cookies or macadamia. I have a week off two weeks before my wedding and I plan on baking then and freezing the cookies. To defrost just let them come to room temp. Maybe they sweat or defrost weird in different parts of the country? I’m in CT

    I make a big assortment of cookies every year for my relatives/neighbors for Christmas and I have to say it’s a huge pain in the ass but they always go over really, really well. For me the biggest pain is not having enough oven space, which means the actual baking takes forever. To save time, I also line all the cookie sheets with baking paper so I don’t have to clean them in between batches, then I run it like a conveyor belt.

    If possible, you can also make the dough beforehand (as mentioned above) and freeze it. Then on baking day you can just defrost the dough and plop it on trays. If you want to have a couple different kinds of cookies, consider using a base dough and then mixing different things into it. For instance, you can have double chocolate chip cookies and m&m cookies and white chocolate w/ macedamian nutes all starting with the same base and adding different types of candy into it.

    Succulents are cute but I would kill it immediately, not to mention not bother to travel with it. I love anything I can eat 🙂

    I love succulents but edible favors are definitely the way to go. We’re doing small bags of Lindt truffles (my Aunt works in corporate and is hooking it up!). Can you decorate with succulents/make them part of your centerpieces?
