I know I’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again, I love the blogging community.  And I am particularly proud to be a member of it today as we are holding the #TeamRyan Silent Auction.

If you aren’t familiar with Center Cut Cook, let me tell you a little about her story (or even better, hear it from her).  Ashley, and her husband Ryan, found out last December that the baby they had been waiting for for so long was on his way.  And just about a week later they found out that Ryan, at age 29, has colon cancer.

Obviously, this is a striking story, and anyone reading it will be utterly moved by Ashley and Ryan’s ability to stay strong in the face of such a HUGE challenge.  But, for me, it really hits home.  I have dealt with my fair share of striking blows, most notably my mom’s death just hours after Gavin was born, and then the loss of our second child, Elliot.  So when I come across someone else who seems to be handed challenges, especially when those challenges come with . . . . unique timing, I feel a kinship with them.  I don’t want anyone else to experience the challenges I have, but it helps to know that you aren’t alone.

So I pretty much jumped at the chance to be part of the silent auction that will benefit Ashley and Ryan . . . now sweet little baby Miles.

And I’m so grateful to Silpat for donating two amazing mats that are part of what I’m auctioning off!  Silpats are my absolute favorite thing to bake with.  Next to my KitchenAid Mixer, they might be the thing in my kitchen that sees the most action.  They are reusable, and totally responsible for my cookies coming out perfect over and over and over.  I started off with just one but quickly upped my stash, because honestly, who has the time to be on top of dishes like that, so I’m giving away TWO!

In addition to the two Silpats, your auction purchase will also get you a batch of these Cookie Butter Butterscotch Cookies.  Should we talk about these cookies for a minute?

You already know that I think Cookie Butter and Butterscotch are a match made in heaven because of this fudge and this pie.  And these cookies really don’t disappoint.  {If you aren’t familiar with Cookie Butter, go ahead and read this post.} They are both crispy and soft, and their cookie butter taste is to die for!

So if you don’t head over and make a bid for them (but I mean, why would you??), you can make them at home for yourself.  And while we are on the topic of the auction, make sure that you go over and see what some of my blogging buddies have put together.  You are going to be bidding like crazy!

And if nothing there grabs your eye, but you’d still like to support Ashley, Ryan, and Miles, click HERE and you can donate directly to them.  Just imagine if everyone gave a few bucks.  The thought gives me chills.

    These do look delicious. I wish people would say how many of these cookies the recipe makes. I suppose it would be no problem to double it.

      Hi! Thanks for visiting! This recipe makes about two dozen cookies. I hesitate to say how much recipes make, because it all depends on how big you make your cookies . . . and how much dough you eat along the way 🙂
