The Case of the Missing Cookies!

6 years ago

Sending Cece across the country with a few dozen of the family favorite biscotti is a very dangerous proposition!    Cece was asked to make the cookies and bring then across from New Mexico.  Simple enough right?

The problem was though,  that Cece kept giving the biscotti away.  She gave some to friends in New Mexico, some to a friend who drove her to the airport, and some to people she met at the airport and in the plane.

By the time she got to her destination, there were perhaps a dozen biscotti left for the party she baked them for.

Not to worry though…there would be many other desserts.  Once at the party though everyone wanted the biscotti with their coffee.  Cece put the tray of biscotti out and in a matter of seconds, they were all gone.

Donna said, “Put your finger on that last one and don’t let anyone have it.”  Cece did that. Donna got the cookie!

Soon after,  Beth came over and asked for one.  Cece had to tell her they were all gone.  Wild eyed, Beth said, “Your sister called me and told me that you gave them away to STRANGERS!  How could you give cookies to strangers?”  Cece told her that not everyone was a “stranger, ” and that her friends say that  she does not know a stranger…. but that did not appease Bethy.

Well, I bet you guessed that a day will be spent baking some more biscotti…this time to give away to the party goers who did not get any of the first batch…otherwise there will be a mutiny!
