Welcome to the 2013 Metafilter Cookie Swap! Many thanks to shothotbot for organizing last year's excellent swap. This year we will follow a similar process, and all of us will eat our fill of delicious baked goods. Here we go!
To sign up, please send an email containing the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, December 1st:
1) Metafilter handle
2) Mailing address
3) Do you have any allergies?
4) Are you ok with booze in your baked goods?
I will arrange bakers into geographically-sensible swap groups of 4 and then send the assignments out to everyone. You will then send roughly 6 cookies to each of your assigned MetaBakers. While you are on the hook for at least 18 cookies, I recommend baking at least two dozen so the members of your household don't think you're a jerk for baking things and then not feeding them any.
To make sure swap groups send out and receive cookies before holiday travel wreaks havoc on everyone's schedules, the mailing deadline for this year's swap is Friday, December 13th.
Let the baking begin!
