For the uninitiated, Cyber Cookies is where I bake “with” my family with a little assistance from our webcams! That’s right – I bake in my kitchen in BC and my family bakes in my sister’s kitchen in Ontario and then it’s kind of like we are baking together except that we don’t get to try each other’s baked goods. So, not quite as good as baking in person, but it’s the best I can do!
I still have to decide on what I want to bake, but so far I thinking making some of the following items:
- shortbread – this is for sure, because I bake the world’s best shortbread
- sugar cookies
- peanut butter chocolate unsurprise cookies2
- coconut squares
- meringue snowflakes
- chocolate mice
Cyber Cookies ’11.

Toronto & Surrey.
You know you are jealous
Except for the Surrey part. No one is jealous of that.
- The hiatus was because I was actually in Ontario last Christmas, so I could bake with my family in person. [↩]
- I call them “unsurprise” cookies because the name of the recipe was originally “peanut butter chocolate surprise cookies,” but the surprise was supposed to be that there is peanut butter surprise but (a) it’s not very surprising, since peanut butter is in the name of the cookie and (b) if someone has a peanut allergy, there’s going to be one hell of a terrible surprise.
