I had no capacity for baking it at the convention, but I did very much appreciate the thoughtfulness of the unexpected gift. As it turns out, I took it over to kadyg's house over the weekend, and she baked cookies last night and brought them over to my desk at work today. Mmm, shortbread!
And the pawprint cookie stamp is just a hoot, although none of my officemates seemed to notice the imprint when I passed the cookies around. May have to decorate the next batch with frosting on the paws.
