Offered again: cookies/biscuits  
Offer: As the first batch has already sold out for the buy it now price (and immediate delivery), I'm offering this again.

Note: Consider badgerbag's batch a separate order, as they asked that the cookies to be sent out immediately. Continue the bidding around them, as I will bake a third and last batch during the time frame below as offered.

I will bake you at least four dozen assorted cookies, split evenly between Welsh tea cakes and my version of the chocolate pepper cookies from one of the Martha Stewart books. Recipes will be included and as both recipes are roll and cut varieties, shapes are negotiable. I have a Dalek cookie cutter, dinosaurs and a few others, but am willing to acquire others by request assuming the shapes are easily available. The chocolate cookies will be iced/decorated and the Welsh tea cates will be plain. Alternately, I will bake 4 dozen of one recipe or the other.

Ingredients: (in case of allergies) tea cakes: flour, sugar, eggs, butter, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, currants. chocolate pepper cookies: flour, sugar, eggs, butter, cocoa powder, pepper, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, salt (decorations may include cinnamon red hots, sprinkles/jimmies/hundreds and thousands, and icing composed of sugar, butter, and food coloring).

Chocolate Dalek army (unfrosted):

Delivery: Negotiable, but in the interest of avoiding melty icing, between October 15 and January 1st. Due to customs issues, this may be limited to the US. Please know your country's customs laws before bidding.

Minimum bid: $10

Buy it now: $50

$50 if you can ship next week, no icing! 8-) (It would be for a present!)

I've already got one batch going out next week, I'm not sure I can manage two.

Would you want Daleks or something else?

Daleks pretty please!

I could always give a late present!

Okay. I'll see what I can do on Sunday, but I'm not giving any promises yet, as the first batch has priority. They may have to wait until next weekend, depending on whether I have enough ingredients on hand.

Did you want a mixed batch, or just the chocolate?

ETA: I've just put a note up in the post that the batch I'm promising you is a separate batch from what is offered, since I technically shouldn't be accepting a buy it now price.

You're welcome. I'll see what I have in the cupboard and let you know when they're ready to ship.

I've finally got 4 dozen Dalek teacakes baked for you. I'd never tried the combination of this cutter and the teacake dough, so they turned out a little puffy (lost a little detail but they look more like three dimensional Daleks). Would you like them sprinkled with cinnamon sugar?

I'm going to try to get a tin for shipping tomorrow morning before work and ship them out Tuesday.

ETA: Email me at gmail (same user name) with your address, so I know where I'm sending them.

Yay thank you! I may post photographic evidence of mass enjoyment (or... EXTERMINATION) just for fun!

*grins* Those are awesome! Where did you find a Dalek cookie cutter?

Alas, badgerbag has upped the bidding beyond what I can afford, otherwise I'd be ALL OVER this. :D

A friend sent it from England. It was packaged with a mediocre biscuit mix.

badgerbag has asked for immediate shipping, so I'm considering that a separate "buy it now" offer, so I don't have to post this again.

Ignore them and consider the next highest bid the highest one in the auction.

Really??! Yay!

$15! :D

You've won. Let me know if you'd want both kinds or one or the other and whether you'd like them decorated. If they're not decorated, I can send them out to you earlier (August probably, the rest of July will be rather busy for me), otherwise I need to wait until chocolate isn't apt to melt in the mail.

You can contact me at hhertzof at gmail to work out the details.
