Cookies and Milk…

… but perhaps without the milk.  But only because the hotel rooms may not have refrigerators.

I’m talking about our alternative to favors, which often end up in the trash.  We’re doing a fun twist on the candy buffet… a cookie buffet!

We’ll get cobalt blue or yellow bags printed with our date, initials, or names.  Several varieties of cookies will be offered so that our guests can pick their favorites and have an afternoon snack when they leave the wedding.  Each cookie jar will have a blue and yellow tag so that people know what cookies they are taking.

Note the cute label.  From weddingbee.

I’m hoping to use lots of cookie recipes from family and friends.  So if you have a great one, send it my way!  modernbridewithabudget *at* gmail *dot* com.

What do you think?  Jars or trays?  Or both?

  1. I think jars look nice, but tray are probably more affordable.

    I am actually doing cookies for my favors and including my “Special” recipe with it. Here it is if you want it:

    1 cup butter, room temperature
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
    2 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 cups flour
    2 ½ cups blended oatmeal
    ½ tsp baking soda
    9 oz chocolate bar
    12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
    3 cups nuts

    Blend oatmeal in a food processor or blender until it becomes a fine powder. Set aside. Cream butter with both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder together in a separate bowl and add to creamed butter mixture. Mix in the oatmeal, about ½ cup at a time. The batter will become thick. Pour in semi-sweet chocolate chips, chocolate bar chunks and nuts. Mix together with your hands to fully incorporate. Roll into 1” ball and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Makes 60-65 cookies.
