We put the cookies in the freezer to get them hard than put 6 of them at a time on cardboard cake boards and vac’ed them to about 75% vacuum. Any less and the cookies were rattling around in the bag. Any more and the fat would get squeezed out of em.

Pretty awesome when you consider that the spot was occupied by Jose Andres the previous year.
Consider yourselves the headlining rock show of the year and everyone else was a line-up of opening acts.

I usually spend seemingly hundreds of hours baking my “secret recipe” choc-chip cookies for my friends but this year I sent them all to Nairobi where my brother is working at an HIV clinic. Awesome job Dave!

Packing – wondering how you keep the chocolate chips from melting and turning in to a complete mess in shipment to Iraq. My cookies last year never made it to the clinic – got lost somewhere at the Nairobi mailroom.
