Cookie Crunch

Johnnie and I are lucky to be here in Korea together, but there are many airmen stationed on the peninsula that are here alone.  They are either single or they had to leave their families in the States.  Every year, the Officers' Spouses Club holds a "Cookie Crunch" holiday cheer project to give a homemade treat to every unaccompanied Air Force member in Korea for the holidays.  Over a span of two weeks, dozens of volunteers baked and packaged about 80,000 cookies.

We borrowed a kitchen in a base restaurant for 6 hours a day for the cookie baking.

Some ingredients for the cookies were purchased but much of it was donated for this good cause.

We made two kinds of cookies: sugar and chocolate chip 

I volunteered for five days and had a great time scooping dough, bagging cookies, and chatting with everyone else there.  It was a great way to get my cookie-making fix for the year!

Happiness is the smell of freshly baked cookies :)

We saved all of the box tops from the Ziploc bag boxes to send to the base elementary school. 

Eight cookies were sealed in each bag, boxed, and frozen until delivery.
