I was humbled to be a part of Operation Cookie Takeover this October. These cookies went out to an active duty Marine stationed abroad. In addition to active duty military, a big thank you goes out to all of our veterans; I can’t imagine what it must take. Much obliged to Melanie at Killer Zebras for the perfect thank you stencil and accompanying cookie cutter.
Another set for a serviceman overseas. One of many sent to our military, serving far away from home, through Operation Cookie Takeover. Although I do not know the individual who received these treats, I want them to know they are not forgotten.
Operation Cookie Takeover was started in early 2013 by a group of cookiers who wanted to show support for a friend deployed overseas. The initial concept was to have a small group of cookie decorators send a dozen cookies each, to be passed out among some of the soldiers on base. Thanks to SammieBSweets initiative, many, many cookie decorators have joined in; here is my small but heartfelt thanks to our service men and women. In particular, this 2016 cookie set went out to a wonderful Marine in the 2/7. ~Thank you for your service!! I hope the cookies found you safe and sound.~
