Instead of looking for places to give away your cookies, you might want to look for reasons to bake them in the first place. That's how I started. I signed up for church dessert lists. I volunteered for all of my daughters school events. I signed up for the luncheon desserts at work. I never thought about selling them. Over time, I guess I developed quit a few fans of my cookies because people started contacting me and asking if I would bake for them! Even today, I most enjoy making cookies for events that are of personal importance to me.
