Wedding Favors – Cookies!

Presenting your guests with a wedding favor is a nice way of saying “thank you for coming and being apart of our special day”. They aren’t a very popular gesture in Sri Lanka but I feel that if people went to the trouble of having them, they would be much appreciated. A few couples give away the five sugared almonds but many do not go beyond that. This is possibly due to the fact that since most weddings in Sri Lanka are quite large to say the least, it wouldn’t be very cost effective.

I came across a lovely cookie recipe which I thought would be an ideal favor to giveaway. Its easy enough to make at home if your looking at cutting costs.

Cookie Recipe (makes over a hundred cookies)
2 (500ml) cups butter
680 g chocolate chips
4 (1000ml) cups flour
2 (500ml) cups brown sugar
2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
2 (500ml) cups sugar
500 g Grated Cadbury chocolate
5 (1250 ml) cups blended oatmeal
4 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups (375 ml) chopped nuts (optional)
Measure oatmeal, and blend in a blender to a fine powder. Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and bicarbonate of soda. Add chocolate chips, grated Chocolate and nuts. Roll into balls, and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees (180 C).
There are some amazing packaging available here which you could gift it in. A small cookie jar is ideal with a small thank you tag attached, but glass packages are expensive.
