Hello Mefites! We are rum-balls-deep into the holiday season, which means it's time for the Great Annual MeFi Cookie Swap! The sign up deadline is December 5 this year, so don't delay, sign up today! [more inside]
I noticed it's a little past the usual time that the cookie swap gets announced, and I miss it! For five years running, ausdemfenster gave us the awesome gift of organizing it. I don’t want to step on toes if I’m wrong, but I think she may not be taking it on this year. Regretfully, I'm not volunteering to run it, but I hoped if I called attention to it here, maybe someone else would?
It’s been A Year, and we here at cookie swap central would like to bring baked joy to as many MeFites across the globe as possible. If you'd like to bring edible tidings of cheer to people’s lives this month, read on. [more inside]
Welcome to the 2016 Metafilter Cookie Swap! It's time for another round of cookie adjudication, recipe sharing, and sugar-fueled meetups all over the world! If you'd like to bring a small bit of joy to someone else's life this month, read on. To sign up, please take a few minutes to fill out and submit the google form below by November 25th: Cookie Swap Signup As in past years, I will arrange bakers into swap groups of ~4 and send out group assignments by November 27th. You will then be tasked with sending at least 6 cookies to each of your group's MetaBakers. While this means you are on the hook for a minimum of 18 cookies, you should likely bake extra for other creatures in your home who will make sad eyes at you until you share your cookies with them. To maximize the chances that holiday travel won't ruin everything, the mailing deadline for this year's swap is Monday, December 5th. Let the baking begin!
Strangers from the internet will bake you cookies and mail them to your home! [more inside]
