It's been a looooooong winter, I certainly can use some cookies to celebrate!

I just might be persuaded to do this swap.  I looooove cookies, and I need for spring to be here.  I did the holiday cookie swap and it was a blast.

Hi there!!!  We do prefer you bake from scratch, as we all love getting new recipes!  Oh, I think I have to alter the description, because we do have to send copies of the recipes along with our packages.  Smiley  Sorry!
A DC number is a Delivery Confirmation number.  When you mail your package, you ask for Delivery Confirmation.  They give you a slip with a huge number on it.  It then allows you to track the package on www.usps.com.  I hope all this helps and I totally think you should sign up!! We'd love to have you!

Hmmmmmmm  I'm going to have to think about this one!  I love love love cookies, and I love to bake, so it seems like a perfect fit lol  But I've never shipped baked goods....  I'll think really hard about it though!

One question to ponder while I think on this.  Description says two batches of cookies.  How many cookies are we calling a batch?

Basically a batch is the amount that comes from the recipe...however, I've been known to send what fits into a very large tupperware container. 
There's a link on how to send baked goods...I don't believe in any of the baking swaps I've been in, there's ever been a problem, everyone seems to receive fresh cookies.
The holiday cookie swap, my cookies took 4 days to get from me to my partner, and those included a batch of vegan cookies and a batch of vegan cupcakes....and my partner said they tasted good, so, they survived. 
Cookies, I'll pack into bags (ziplock) and then pack into tupperware like (disposable type) containers.  Sometimes I line the containers with wax paper and it somewhat seals them a little better.
Since we're shipping priority mail, technically they're going to get there within 2 days.
I hope this helps!!
