Cookies on 9 - December 2015

New Haven's Cookies on 9 2015 - Delicious!

On December 4, 2015 from 6pm-8pm we got to sample dozens of delicious cookies and other sweet treats!

The first Friday in December we traveled back to New Haven's Historic Ninth Square to participate in their Cookies On Nine event! This annual cookie crawl is always a crowd pleaser, featuring cookies baked by students in Gateway Community College's Culinary Department. And best of all - tickets are only $10.00!

We picked up our cookies carriers and off we went! The weather was unbelievable for December in Connecticut! It was about 55 degrees and beautiful weather for a cookie crawl!

We didn't get to visit every place because we tend to visit longer than we should with each participating merchant - but we loved every place we visited!

And we got A LOT OF COOKIES!!!
